One of the most popular gender stereotypes is that women ask for directions while men would rather be lost than ask for help. In your personal experience, does this stereotype hold true?

I don't know I've never been a woman.

Putting the laws of time and plausiblity aside, picture a battle between the megalodon (a prehistoric shark with a six-foot jaw span) and a giant squid (reported to be the size of a school bus). Who would win?

It would be a battle so epic and fiercely thought that neither combatant could ever truly win. Instead they would be locked in battle until the very end of time.

A lot of characters in kids' books have it pretty good, from calling the start of the wild rumpus to ordering room service from their hotel suite. If you could be any character from children's literature, who would you be?

I wouldn't be a character from children's literature because nobody in children's literature gets to have sex or even go on the internet looking for pornography. Children's literature is so childish.

Field mice always sleep facing northwest. Kangaroos can't walk backwards. Female hyenas have penises. Let's face it, nature is weird. What's the strangest thing you know about the animal kingdom?

If I'm ever lost in a field I'm totally orientating myself by which way the fielding mice (I can't believe I really just wrote fielding instead of sleeping field mice. My brain has just died a little I think) are facing. But as for weird animal facts of my own I have none. Unless you count things that I've just made up. In which case tortoises actually have wings hidden under their shell. If they need to make a quick getaway their shells fold up like some bizarre gadget out of James Bond and their unfold their glorious wings and fly off.

From shooting stars to stray eyelashes, there are a lot of ways to make a wish. What's your preferred method for asking favors from the universe?

Right so that's how you make a wish. I'm just going to go and pull a few eyelashes out and be right back. How long are these wish things supposed to take? Seconds? Minutes? Hours? Days? Years? Decades? Millenia? Something Longer Than Millenia? How am I supposed to know if it is going to work either. Am I supposed to get some kind of signal. Like a bell twinkling or something. Hey I had a dream and I was talking to someone about Terry Pratchett in it. We were talking and he was saying something about the Hogfather Sky1 special that Sky1 did ages ago and he assumed I liked it because my bookshelf is full of Terry Pratchett. I told him no because of all the things that were wrong with Sky1s version of Hogfather, not least including David Jason and we had a long conversation about Discworld. Anyway this question isn't if you had a dream about Discworld what was it? Because that would be an absurd question. This dream is... erm... actually I don't know. Something about pull your own eyelashes out or something. Nevermind.

Kurt Vonnegut's books have great titles, like Breakfast of Champions and Slaughterhouse Five. If your life was a novel, what would the title be?

"War Of The Orange Oblong Noises"
