The last time you left the hairdresser happy with the result?

Three weeks ago. Rather short, as usual.

 

What happened in your last premonitory dream?

I won a match at a major tournament, a month ago or so.

 

It hasn't really happened yet, though?

Well thanks for that (laughs). I know it will be premonitory, trust me. But when?

 

And in your craziest dreams, what do you do?

I fall off a cliff, it's terrible. You feel that you are falling, you can feel the free-fall and you wake up. I hate it. But as for its significance? I wish I knew.

 

What is your technique for removing the golden film from a jar of Nutella?

Easy! I take my knife this way (he mimes a circle). I go all the way around like that and after I remove it gently. I like the noise!

 

Why are Japanese women always prettier in mangas?

Well, we're all more beautiful in pictures, right?

 

Why are there so many beautiful babies and so many ugly people?

Just as there are bad and good guys; it takes both ugly and beautiful people to make a world.

 

What is opposite of a doormat?

A chair.

 

Are animals afraid to die too?

I don't think so. They have an instinct. They know when they will die, they feel themselves go but it doesn't scare them.

 

A friend calls you at four in the morning and tells you: “I think I screwed up. I killed someone.” What do you do?

Very calmly, I'd tell him: “Go to the police and hand yourself in.” That's life! I really don't want to be involved in it (laughs).

 

What is the purpose of the Pope's manhood?

Not much.

 

“To survive a war, you must become war.” Do you understand what Rambo meant when he said that?

Look straight ahead and never give up. Never.

 

When you blow your nose, do you look at what's left in the tissue?

Always, and sometimes it's not very nice!

 

How can you tell fake breasts from real ones?

By feel! You can even see it sometimes, you know, when nothing moves.

 

When it's a full moon, do you feel weird too?

I feel weird because everyone says so. Maybe it really does change something, but I think it's mostly in the head. In fact, I couldn't care less.

 

Who invented the weekend?

I can't even remember what a real weekend is. What is it?

 

What do you do if your wife disobeys you?

I run away.

 

Give me an argument in favour of swimming trunks?

I can't. It's ridiculous.

 

Finally in the quick interview, who is the more stupid – he who asks the questions, or he who answers them?

It's me, for sure.
