Do you have a favorite flag?
I think it is that of Dinotopia. It is brown and yellow with a yellow weasel in the center. Dinotopia is a wonderful but unlucky country. They are so needy their national hymn is the Chili's jingle sung backward.
Who were you in your first school play?
It was a play on the life of Francis Bacon. I played the Lone Ranger until somebody got smart.
If happiness were an animal, what would it be?
Probably a sheep. A large, fat, tranquil sheep, well fed and sleepy in the shade of a large tree.
If I may say so, Ben, you are well known for your strange requests when staying in hotels. Is it true? Can you explain us why and maybe make an example of something you usually ask?
Ben needs what Ben needs, and he generally gets it. Whether it's pure antimony or silver-plated underwear.
Could you suggest a remedy for haemorrhoids?
All right! In case of haemorrhoids, mix three parts of champagne, two parts of coffee and some soy sauce in the skull of a kangaroo, then drink this mixture every 10 minutes for at least 3 hours.
How famous do you think you are, on a scale of one to ten?
I forgot the statistics. Probably, I'm a three in Nepal, but a nine in Denver.
Ben, do you have something to say to young people?
Sure! Don't let the color of your skin hold you back. Sun block and sunscreen have been invented for a reason.
If you could choose a someone to reincarnate in, who would it be?
Probably Kurt Vonnegut.
