Q: What's your issue with the nation's musicians?
A: Don't you get it?! they want all our fastest women and smoothest times. I just couldn't stand by any longer, call me a patriot.
Q: Have you ever took part in music?
A: Up live, or on my stereo?
A: Of course not, I don't even own a stereo.
Q: And not up live?
A: Did you go to school for this? I'm finding you amateurish.
Q: I just wanted you to clarify.
A: Next question please.
Q: Do you have any message for Greg Howe?
A: Hey Howe, can it. You don't know what you're talking about.
Q: Anything else?
A: Yeah, next time you want a crescendo, I'll give you a lesson on relative loudness, using my index and middle fingers and your eyeballs.
