QUESTION | What was your most memorable 4th of July?

ANSWER | As children we used to get drunk and blow up things with fireworks.

Did you ever actually set off fireworks in the sky, or just blow things up?

It starts that way, but ends up (with) blowing things up.

Any memorable disasters?

The big firework that you put in a can, well, it didn't shoot out and blew up in front of us. And we had Roman Candle fights as kids and one of my friends lost his eyebrow.

What's the most spectacular fireworks display you've seen?

Surfside Pier every year.

Which color do you like best, red, white or blue?

Blue because I look better in it.

Do you know what the stars and stripes stand for on the American flag?

For the 13 original colonies and the stars are the states.

Do you think South Carolina should still be allowed to fly the Confederate Flag at the State House?

I know how it's offensive because of the history of it, but for some it is their heritage... But I don't think it should fly over the State House.

If it was a flag that represented you, what would it look like?

Rainbow flag.

What's the best movie you've seen lately?

“Man of Steel.” Superman is awesome.

What's the best movie of all time?

“Anchorman - The Legend of Ron Burgundy.” It takes a lot to make me snort, and this movie is snortable.

Would you rather be a movie buff or totally buff, as in muscular?

Movie buff... That's why I work here. I'm a movie buff.

Who is the sexiest actor?

Leonardo DiCaprio.

How many bowling balls can you lift at once?


Have you ever considered juggling them?

Once while intoxicated.

Have you ever taken a (liquor) shot out of the bowling ball finger holes?

No - people's fingers go in that!
