The Home of Penn Jillette

The dwelling is famously known as “the Slammer,” but it’s a deceptive title. Certainly, there are prison-esque, crime-like design elements here: Guests are asked (or required) to pose in front of a height chart as if in a police lineup; the body outline on the kitchen floor is that of Teller gripping a knife (or so Penn says). But the Slammer is not entirely like a real slammer, which strips inhabitants of their physical freedom. (As Penn notes, “slammer” is actually the slang term for the BSL-4 Patient Isolation Suite at the U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Disease at Fort Detrick in Maryland, an ideal place to enjoy one’s privacy).
