Kirk or Picard? Picard. Okay, why? Because he's, he's so classy. Alright what about Batman or Superman? Okay that is so hard Which versions? I'm gonna tell you an embarrassing story. [LAUGH] So there was nobody on TV that looked even close to me that I could identify with. Except Teri Hatcher was kind of very tan. So I thought that she looked. [LAUGH] I don't know. I got my hair cut to look like hers. And my first AOL handle was WannabeLois. [LAUGH] So I guess I have to choose Superman. But then, the Dark Knight is a really good. Fight for that. So it's almost a toss up, but Superman. It's a toss up, but yeah, I guess Superman in this regard. So, follow up. Superman's dad, Jarelle, or Paw Kent? Paw Kent. Paw Kent. Yeah, okay. Yeah, western. I'm from Julius, Illinois. So, okay. DC or Marvel? Oh, God! These are so hard! Marvel, they're doing more interesting stuff right now in my opinion. But you were on a show based on DC Universe. I was. Android or iOS? IOS. But only because it's just in my pocket right now. Right. I could change at any moment. Theory of the moment, iOS. Okay. Facebook or Twitter? I can't say either.

Gordon Freeman. Old school shuffling zombies or new school fast zombies? Even though the shuffling makes sense It does make sense. But we don't know what's going to cause a Zombie Apocalypse so if rage is the thing that What am I referencing? 28 days later? There's a lot of zombies. Yeah. Fast zombies. Fast zombies. I think that it makes more sense in my brain that they're shuffley, but I think that the world can have both. So pass. There's room in the world for all zombies. There's room in the world for any kind. You know, we're zombie inclusive. We want you to feel very included in whatever zombie you'll turn in to. We accept all of you. And you passed! That's it?
