What are you plugging right now?
Well, I have a new record coming out with Jonah Mociun about eating fruit and Vegemite and a lot of other good things. Then I’m doing the Tim and Eric Awesome Show reunion, and then I’m going to do Season 6 of Check It Out! with Dr. Steve Brule. And then I have a poetry book coming out with my poems and my art work.
What’s your idea of perfect happiness?
Being in perfect health and finding the right lady who’s faithful, loyal, respectful and lets me enjoy my hobbies.
Which living person do you most admire?
Oh wow, there’s so many. I like Doris Day from my church. She was very inspirational toward me with all the music and stuff that she did and the movies she did.
What’s your most embarrassing moment?
When my wife left me for Roberto Julius Gonzales.
Ever stolen anything?
When I was six years old I stole candy from the candy jar in a store. My mother saw it and she spanked my hand and made me pay triple for it from my allowance.
What do you most dislike about your appearance?
That I’m not muscular. I’m skinny.
What life lesson would you pass on to your children?
Honesty, perseverance, working hard, staying in school and staying focused. And following through on their dreams and their goals.
What job would you do other than your own and why?
School teaching and being a religious leader.
I’d like the fans to know that I’m looking for a model of the Chicago North Shore and Milwaukee railroad and Aurora and Elgin.
