Who are your heroes?
Jim (the obscure cousin of Augustus), Mary Poppins, and myself.
Josh, what do you think of global warming?
I think that global warming is a grave matter. Anyway, my fans will surely be happy to know that my future mansion will be at least 70 feet above the sea-level.
Josh, you appear to be always so chirpy and sunny. Do you also have a dark side?
It's difficult to confess it, but I do. Everybody has two sides. For example, when I face another artist, rage darkens my soul and I clench my teeth. And suddenly, I experience a compulsion to close those gazing eyes for good. And then there is my dark side... You do not want to know about it.
Josh, which is your favorite fruit?
It is called "Josh's marvel". In the middle of one of my famed explorations of the Amazon basin, I uncovered a plant unknown to botanists, now named Lasiocistea excelsa, which every 7 years blooms and produces fruits whose flavor reminds of oranges and black vinegar. It sounds uncanny, but it may cause addiction.
How famous do you think you are, on a scale of one to ten?
I'm not sure. Probably, I'm a one in Mongolia, but a seven in Atlanta.
What is the first prize you ever won?
I won the "Plastic Monkey Award" assigned by the city of Denver for "memorable yet superfluous acting performance" at the age of 6.
If happiness were an animal, what would it be?
In my dreams it is an ocelot. A big, fat, quiet ocelot, well fed and dozy in the summer shade.
Do you do your own shopping?
I'm too hard at work doing very important things for all the people and I can't waste time on such trifles. Actually, I employ a gang of specialists to compile my grocery list and pass it along to a team of pro buyers spread around the planet. For the garnments, which are always critical, I ever pay a bunch of doubles, one for each body part.
