QUESTION | So what's with the 1980s flip phone?

ANSWER | I keep it old school. It doesn't break and the battery lasts long, and I can still text. I'm an ‘80s baby!

So there's not even a keyboard?

T-9 (predictive text), and I'm quick at it.

What fashion statement from the last century do you wish you could bring back?

Vanilla Ice haircuts, because I used to have Vanilla Ice lightning bolts in my hair when I was younger.

What member of the Rat Pack do you most identify with?

Probably Frank Sinatra because he drinks and puts on a show.

How about the Brat Pack?

I would be Emilio Estevez, the coach of District 9, The Mighty Ducks...quack, quack, quack!

What reality show could you be a star character in?

Probably “Jersey Shore” because I have more hair glue than Pauly D… but on the opposite of the spectrum, I'm not tan at all.

So no fake-and-baking for you?

I look like a lobster after that.

Would you rather be attacked by a group of lobsters with their claws or ducks with their sharp beaks?

Ducks because they put all the "Wades" on a map - Wade the Duck...quack, quack, quack!

Gimme us good gossip you've heard lately.

Jason Black works out with a cantaloupe for his inner thighs. C-90X I think it's called.

What's the most mysterious part of your body?

My 6th finger. It's just a nub now, but I was born with one.

Had you kept it, what do you think you could do better and/or faster?

Text on my throwback phone.

If your super power was to be able to build almost anything with popsicle sticks and glue, how would you help make the world a better place?

I'd build a bar. That's the only thing that goes right in this world and keeps people happy.
