1. Dogs or Cats? Why?

RAY:  Cats.  Because they are Outlaws, Satan Worshippers and I love them!

MARLIN:  Pork or beef usually, but whatever.

KEN:  Self-evident. (Funny: Sir Marlin Von Bungy couldn't believe that there was someone in this band called "Katboy" and that it wasn't Ray. It isn't me, either.)

MATT:  Cats, because they don't give a fuck. Until they do, then they give ALL the fucks. And you must, as well, servant human.

RICHARD:  Both. Although leaning towards dogs more these days. I've handled my share of cat box treats.

2. Aliens. Do they exist?

RAY:  I fucking hope so.  No way humans are the A-#1 Duke of the Universe.

MARLIN:  Of course. But don't tell the orange president.

KEN:  I want to speak to an attorney.

MATT:  Statistically speaking, they must. Hopefully they are nicer than us. And if not, hopefully they never find us.

RICHARD:  Certainly.

3. Drug of choice? (None is not an option btw)

RAY:  Romantic Comedies (on Weed!)

MARLIN:  Depends on whether the question is coming from my probation officer. Lets just say none to be safe. But talk to me later.

KEN:  Endorphin.

MATT:  If I had to pick one, it would be Diet Dr. Pepper.

RICHARD:  A good ol' PCP laced, red wine enema.

4. Brown or white gravy? (Neither is not an option btw)

RAY:  I am allowed no gravy.  Sore subject.  Next Question!

MARLIN:  White.   

KEN:  Alfredo.

MATT:  I will avoid gravy-choice evangelism and say that both have their moments. White on biscuits, anything chicken-fried, potatos, grits, starchy things. Brown on turkey & dressing, potatos, beef dishes. Really, if somebody sets gravy down in front of me, it's going on my food. Period.

RICHARD:  I kind of agree with Matt on these things.

5. Favorite weapon of mass destruction?

RAY:  Favorite?  Giant earthbound Asteroid/Meteor would be rad on an Extinction Event/Out of My Control level.  But if I had to pick how I wanted everyone to die?  Maybe a heroin bomb.   

MARLIN:  Taco Casa Taco Lite.

KEN:  Stratocaster.

MATT:  Targeted asteroids.

RICHARD:  Music.

6. Favorite marsupial?

RAY:  Koala.  Because a Platypus is a Monotreme not a Marsupial.

MARLIN:  Never been to Mars before.

KEN:  My Wife.

MATT:  Possum. Did you know female marsupials have two vaginas, and males have bifurcated penises? Penii? Penes? Penae? I digress...

RICHARD:  Tasmanian Devils.

7. Favorite Superhero?

RAY:  Bizarro Ted Cruz.

MARLIN:  Wonder Woman.

KEN:  Jon Teague.

MATT:  According to my friend Daniel, I'm already a superhero. My super power is the Power of Indifference. If not me, then Zorlak the Avenger.

RICHARD:  El Duce!

8. Did Dez catch it?

RAY:  I was always a Keith Morris/Ron Reyes guy.

MARLIN:  that is between him and his doctor. None of my business. 

KEN:  Who is Dez?  What is “It”?

MATT:  This is a sports question, right? No clue, not a big sports fan.

RICHARD:  Is this a Black Flag reference?

9. When you die, if you were given the choice to come back as any animal, which would you choose?

RAY:  The Lazy Trinity of I do what I want…House Cat, Otter or Three-Toed Sloth.

MARLIN:  The one from the Muppet Movie.

KEN:  See first reply.

MATT:  An alien superhero, Zorlak the Avenger. Then I could prove #2 conclusively.

RICHARD:  Party Animal.

10. The best MJ is: Michael Jordan, Michael Jackson, Mike Jones, or Milla Jovovich?

RAY:  Mick Jones because he was in the Clash and Foreigner.

MARLIN: Is Mick Jones an option? That would be my answer. Either from Foreigner or the one from the Clash.

KEN:  Michael Jackson.

MATT:  Multi-pass.

RICHARD:  Mick Jones.
