I’m watching ‘Storytellers’ with Bruce Springsteen. I don’t mean I’m watching the episode of ‘Storytellers’ where musician Bruce Springsteen is featured while he tells the stories of his popular songs. I mean, sitting next to me on the couch while I watch the TV show ‘Storytellers’ is Bruce Springsteen. He stopped by because we were going to play NCAA College Football 2009. I always play with the Idaho Vandals and he plays as the Michigan State Spartans. But, I forgot that I didn’t have fresh batteries for my X-Box 360 controller and since neither of us feel like walking to the 7-11, we just turned on the previously mentioned program ‘Storytellers’ on my television. This episode is featuring the musician…well, never mind. I don’t want to talk about this anymore. I just want you to enjoy the interview with Megan Gailey.
Riggs: How are you?
Gailey: Currently sick but I had Shepherd’s pie for lunch, then watched The Purge 2 and feeling better.
Riggs: If you could, how would you plan your own funeral?
Gailey: FIREWORKS! Lots of booze, a roast, celebrity appearances from my ex’s and tons of food. Maybe a slide show of me looking my thinnest during every year of my life. I mean not maybe, definitely.
Riggs: Corn: Canned or Fresh?
Gailey: Fresh. We used to drive up to fields in Indiana and pick it and then put it in strangers mailboxes. That’s basically and Indiana hate crime.
Riggs: What is the thing (tv show, comedian, person etc.) that gave you the idea to start comedy?
Gailey: Johnny Carson
Riggs: If you could have dinner with any historical figure, what would you suggest as an appetizer?
Gailey: App sampler: shrimp cocktail, meatball sliders, buffalo wings, nachos.
Riggs: How many surgeries have you had?
Riggs: What are your four favorite state capitals (lower 48)? Please don’t say why.
Gailey: Indianapolis, Indy, Naptown! Hoosier home (honestly I read through the Wikipedia list and the rest are garbage)
Riggs: 5 words or less…explain religion.
Gailey: Church candy mean men death
Riggs: What are you most proud of in the world?
Gailey: My family. They are better than me and I know that.
Riggs: Any final thoughts? (Although none of your words will be edited, do know that if you do not include nice words about me, I will add them in for you…fyi, my version of you will be very complimentary of me)
Gailey: Go Colts. Powerade Zero should be sold more places and breast cancer awareness is a hoax. Also, Matt Riggs is a swell son of a gun and his dad is also a gun, a real gun.
