I was talking to Barbara Dickson yesterday in my dressing room.

Emergency Questions

Sukh Ojla

If you could take one item from any museum or art gallery – and you’re allowed to take it home with you – in the world, what would you take?

Well, the thing is, Richard, who owns art? Can I have an object that was taken from India and so I can give it back? Yeah, great. Ah, I don’t know. I mean, there’s so many of them, I don’t know what to pick. I’d like to repatriate something. Does it have to be in a gallery or a museum, did you say? Can I just get – is this like Supermarket Sweep? Do I, like, get like a trolley dash around the British Museum? *RH notes that since SO intends to be selfless with her selection that would be alright.* Is that okay? I feel like, I feel like the British Museum would do. Yeah. *RH notes that the British Museum owns the objects of many cultures and SO couldn’t only take items from her own.* Why not? *RH names cultures whose artifacts have been claimed by the british Museum.* And Egypt. *Gasp.* Can I have a mummy? It has nothing to do with India. Sorry. No, because it might be cursed. I don’t want a mummy. Yeah, something Indian.

What is the worst thing that a cow has done to you?

A cow? Um, well I’ve got an intolerance to cow’s milk. Does that answer your question? Doesn’t stop me drinking it. *RH suggests that this could impact SO’s depression.* Do you think so? No, I’d rather be depressed and have cheese though.

What is your favourite pinball table?

I think I’ve seen them in the films. Sorry, I’m really bad at losing. I’m the most competitive only child you’ll ever meet. *RH encourages SO to download the iPad-version of the Addams Family pinball game.* That’ll get me through the last five days of Fringe.
