GLENN: Here's something that is up on the website at GlennBeck.com and you would only get if you were, I guess if you were from New York the New York Magazine, have you ever seen that, New York Magazine? Yeah. Seen it on the shelves. I've never actually purchased one. I don't think I ever would. But it's always got some highfalutin -- it's always like, "Good news! The ballet has added two new performances." And you're like, oh, great. And it's -- I don't know if this is their official slogan. It might be. I'm not sure. The magazine for snobs. I shouldn't say that out loud? Okay.
They asked me to answer 21 questions and so I did over the weekend. Not thinking that they would actually run any of them, but I went to their website. I haven't seen I want in the magazine yet, but I went to their website. We've posted it at GlennBeck.com and it's all like -- I don't even know how to say his name. It's Suri or whatever his name is, a designer, it's all these people. Oh, my favorite drink? It's got to be a '71 Cabernet Chateau Lafite. It's all the, you know, snobby stuff.
So I was a little squirrely this weekend and I decided to answer the questions and here they are. Who is your favorite New Yorker, living, dead, real or fictional? I thought the answer that would set most New Yorkers on fire and the one that was actually true would be Teddy Roosevelt. In one sentence what do you actually do all day in your job? Same thing as you except my cubicle is connected to radio and television networks. Would you live in New York on a $35,000 salary? My answer? I couldn't afford the bug spray on $35,000. Do you give money to panhandlers? No, except when they're actually handling pans. I think it's a lost art. What is your favorite drink? And this is what they actually use as the headline. What is your favorite drink? My answer? As a conservative, I guess it's just what you would expect it to be. I drink the blood of small people who are different than me.
DAN: They probably didn't think you were kidding, did they?
GLENN: That's the headline. "Glenn Beck drinks the blood of small people who are different than he is." (Laughing).
DAN: At least they weren't being salacious with their headlines.
GLENN: Oh, I know. That's the only time a salacious headline is accurate.
How often do you prepare your meals? I just thought this was -- I just thought this was so snotty, it was great. How often do you prepare your own meals? Who asks that question? How often do you prepare your own meals? I put, if by "You," you mean "My people," then, well, all the time. What's your favorite medication? What kind of question is that? What's your favorite kind of medication? I'm a recovering alcoholic. All of them. This is my favorite answer. What's hanging above your sofa? In your wildest dreams, how boring does the conversation have to get before you say, "So what's hanging above your sofa?" I mean, you're just, you're searching for something to say at that point. "So what kind of toilet paper do you buy? What's your favorite color? What's above your sofa?" My favorite answer of the whole thing is what's hanging above your sofa? Just to drive the Central Park West crowd crazy, I have furs, lots and lots of furs. This interview just makes me happy. I just love this. Who is your mortal enemy? Almost everyone between 63rd and 86th Streets.
You can find it. It's entitled "Glenn Beck Drinks the Blood of Small People Who Are Different Than He is" in New York Magazine. You can find it at GlennBeck.com. Dan, do you think that will make me popular in New York?
DAN: They already love you here, Glenn, and I think after reading that, they are really going to come to a new appreciation of you.
GLENN: I was walking down the street with my wife. I don't know if I told you this story. I was walking down the street with my wife, like, three weeks ago and this woman looks at me and I can tell she recognizes who I am and she body slams me. I'm not kidding you. She's like 40 years old. Body slams me as she walks past me and as she does, she says, "I hate you." Furs, lots and lots of furs.
