I was hanging around with the proud boys the other day. Not the racist ones; just a load of six year-olds whose mums had just said they’d done a really good job tidying up their bedrooms and they were very happy. And they were all sporting stubby erections as well. So they were proud in two ways, and still more grown-up than the other Proud Boys.

Emergency Questions

When was the last time you saw a donkey?

Uh, probably a year-and-a-half ago. Yeah. Probably a year-and-a-half ago. A real donkey. Cartoon donkeys, I see all the time because that’s the symbol for the Democratic party here in the States, but a real donkey, probably a year-and-a-half ago.

Have you ever met a shepherd?

No. You?

Who’s the most surprising famous person you’ve been in a lift with? And which I mean, you can’t have gotten into the lift with them; they had to be in the lift you were in.

Maybe I had a fight with my wife – I don’t know. I’m just angry. The doors open and standing there is Dolly Parton. And I remember – I remember I either visibly or audibly said something like, “Ugh.” Like, “Now this.” You know? We never shared the same elevator, but she was getting off as I was getting on. I was just outraged that she would dare show her face while I was in such a foul mood.
