Just because Coy has a huge online presence, doesn't mean he gets out of answering my "interview" questions: 

Q: What is the circumference of your face? Please measure to the closest millimeter around the largest part.
A: 7000 millimeters

Q: Did you really just measure your face?
A: No, I just guessed (and I suck at the metric system, I hope I got close!)

Q: Okay, so the eyeball candle. That's pretty genius. How did you get to be so smart?
A:  Good genes, but if I write an autobiography, I’m going to attribute my genius to ‘cosmic rays.’ Actually, it's not so smart to make eyeball candles. It really tends to alienate you...which is why I wear a mask. I unmasked for the pic of me and the cydonk, though.

Q: If you had one wish that would be granted no matter what -- but it had to include peanut butter in some way, what would you wish for?
A: Easiest question yet. I’d wish for ten pounds of peanut butter cups, a digital camera, and myself to all be transported to a certain friend’s house. He’s allergic to peanuts, but he can’t resist a peanut butter cup. For some reason peanuts make him get a nose bleed. I’d love some photos of him with self induced bleeding. I’d probably also eat a couple of them myself. They’re yummy, and it’s my wish, after all.

Q: Do you have anyone in your life who will go buy you tortilla chips whenever you want?
A: I asked that very question a couple of days ago. Apparently I don’t. Especially if it’s snowing.

Q: How did you hear about The Sauce?
A: Someone who’s done a trade on the Sauce bought a pickled punk from me (I’m leaving out her name because of what she bought…some people are embarrassed that they have a fascination with babies in jars, go figure). Anyway, she told me about the Sauce, so I looked. I love it, got an account, offered a trade, screwed up and sent a freebie, got stuck with extra pictures and an extra story!

Q: Did you just fart?
A: It was the dog, honest!
