Okay sweet! If you had to get a stick and poke right now what would you get?

Jonathan: I had a friend who once who got the word ‘oops’.

Jesse: I would do … Bob Ross. I’ve been trying to get an image of Bob Ross on me, but I don’t know if it’s weird to do a representation of a person.

What’s your favorite trader joe’s goodie?

Jesse: Dunkers!

Jonathan: Those dunkers… yeah.

Like dunkaroos?

Jesse: I think the rip-off Trader Joe’s brand of that is Dunkers.

Brian: We used to go through those in like two days.

Jesse: Yeah, it’s got some cinnamon oatmeal flavs in there… highly addictive.

Lila: I used to get the cookie butter!

Are you familiar with tooth tunes? The toothbrushes that play music? What song would your tooth tunes play?

What album?

Jonathan: The new one.

What type of movie would your music be the soundtrack of?

Jesse: Oooh… psychological thriller!

Brian : Romcom.

What astrological sign do you think your latest release is?

Lila: Gemini

You don’t like it, or..?

Lila: No no, it’s just all over the place.

What actor would play your lifetime original movie character?

However you want to take that.

Jonathan: Bruce Willis.

Jesse: Danny Devito, hell yeah, absolutely.

What’s the spookiest thing you’ve ever seen, like have you ever seen a ghost?

What’s your favorite food at fairs?

Jesse: Huge turkey leg, dead serious.

How do you take your coffee?
