Is your tongue tripping over all the clever shit you want to ask me? The rhetorical questions under the disingenuous guise of honest journalistic inquiry? TMF: You're really Garth Brooks, right? I mean, behind the contacts, the Emo rug, and the triangle of pubes glued to your lower lip, you're the guy who wears those Wrangler Brush Popper shirts and belts out Billy Joel songs, right? CG: David Bowie didn't get asked these kinds of questions. TMF: To be fair, David Bowie didn't suck. CG: Kool Keith is allowed to exchange personae mid-performance and no one bats an eye. TMF: Am I to understand that you're comparing yourself to Kool Keith? Motherfucker, please. CG: Sasha Fierce? TMF: Nobody actually thinks of Sasha Fierce as a personality distinct from Beyonce Knowles. It's just a fucking metal glove. CG: And a body suit. Beyonce doesn't wear a body suit. Only Sasha does. TMF: Oh, so you're on first-name basis with other performers' alter-egos? You and Aladdin hang out much? You and Ziggy and Hannah and Xtina and Macphisto get into some kinky five-way action?

TMF: And you're incredibly perceptive for someone with their head up Garth Brooks' ass.
