Gubernatorial candidate on cleaning toilets, objects that can get stuck in your nose and kilts
WILDCAT: What's the worst job you've ever had?
SALMON: Oh · probably cleaning toilets at McDonald's.
WILDCAT: And how long did you do that?
SALOMON: Well, I did other things; that was just part of the job. You know, nobody likes cleaning toilets, so when it finally got up to the point where I was actually working on the grill, flipping the burgers, I thought I was in heaven.
WILDCAT: Speaking of fries · have you ever stuck anything up your nose?
SALMON: Other than my finger?
SALMON: I've never stuck anything up my nose that I can remember to the best of my knowledge.
WILDCAT: Any foreign objects you've had to recover from the noses of your children?
SALMON: No, I had one that swallowed a penny, but nothing up their noses other than their fingers.
WILDCAT: If you had the choice to be buried in a pyramid or cryogenically frozen and sent orbiting the earth, which would you choose?
SALMON: Probably cryogenically frozen.
WILDCAT: How many years would you like to wait to be unfrozen?
SALMON: I don't know, probably 500 years.
WILDCAT: What decade would you like the fashion to resemble at the time of your unfreezing?
SALMON: Forties. Like the guys who wore the fedoras.
WILDCAT: And the zoot suits?
SALMON: Yeah, yeah · I'd look good in a zoot suit.
WILDCAT: What about a kilt? Do you think you would look good in a kilt?
SALMON: I don't know.
WILDCAT: Do you think they are rugged and manly or skirts on men?
SALMON: After I saw "Braveheart," it made me think those are some manly Scots.
WILDCAT: I prefer that there not be large open spaces in the bottom of men's clothing. I'm all about seams.
SALMON: Actually, Salmon is a Scottish name, so maybe in another time and another place I would have worn a kilt.
