QUESTION | What is your favorite type of sushi?

ANSWER | Numbers 70-120 at SoHo, of course.

What else do you eat raw? Oysters, cocktail, lemon... down it goes - no chewing required.

Would you rather eat raw eggs, raw alligator or raw porcupine? Probably alligator, as long as it’s dead and not from the waterway.

Have you ever eaten roadkill? Some of the best deer jerky comes from my roadways back home in tha South.

Have you ever created roadkill?Oh yes, I tend to crash cars a lot killing squirrel, Bambi, Peter Cottontail, coons... you name it, I’ve killed... besides myself, yet, thank you Jesus.

What type of car do you drive? 2007 SS Trailblazer 450 hp. I bought it for my precious cargo, Kennedy Grace, so she will never be late for school.

If you had indispensable funds to buy whatever car you wanted, what would be your new ride? I hate this question, but Lamborghini of any type, then I would be somebody.

Do men need big muscles to drive muscle cars? I’m starting to think hell yes, considering I’ve wrecked two GTOs and an SS Trailblazer with my toothpick arms.

How do you build muscle on a car? Supercharger, nitrous, turbo. I’m going to say nothing sounds better than a twin turbo boost passing you.

And what’s the best way to build muscle on a body?Easy: steroids - fact. Naw, first you need a dedicated body and mind, that’s all it takes, with a few muscle milks here and there.

Muscles or form- which is more likely to improve your golf game? One hundred percent form...muscle growth hurts every bit of your swing from tempo, feel, rotation to even putting. The only thing muscles are good for in golf is an Under Armour sponsorship.

Have you gotten any hole-in-ones lately? It’s been a while but yes, I have two - both in high school play, while my good friend and No. 1 on my team had 11 through high school and had one in the state championship, which he won and beat me by a hole-in-one, and now has 13 hole-in-ones to date...it’s a lucky kind of thing.

Would you rather be a weakling who drives a muscle car or a muscleman who drives a golf cart? Weakling driving the muscle just in case I had to run from a muscleman...while he gets to Hole 18, I’ll be two states over.
