WHAT'S THE ONE THING YOU WOULD NEVER DARE PUT IN THE MICROWAVE?
A baby. I heard they explode. The dying part's not that big a deal. It's the exploding. Because then you have to clean it up.
DESCRIBE YOUR IDEAL PRO-WRESTLING ALTER EGO.
I want to go old-school and be that wrestler that always wears a mask: in movie theaters, restaurants — I'm ordering a steak through it. His name would just be "El," because everyone would want to call him something different. "El what?" Exactly. He would talk with a different accent every day. One day with a Mexican accent, one day with a Southern accent. But you never actually see him wrestle.
TLC JUST PREMIERED A REALITY SHOW CALLED17 KIDS AND COUNTING THAT CHRONICLES THE LIVES OF THE DUGGAR FAMILY, WHO'RE EXPECTING THEIR 18TH CHILD. WHAT WOULD THE MENCIA-FAMILY VERSION OF THAT SHOW LOOK LIKE?
Well, of course, my mother doesn't get paid by a network. There's no surprise, because my mom's a Latina. Part of the shock of that family is that they're white. If someone said, "Hey, this lady had 18 kids!" "Wow, really?" "Her name's Mencia!" "Wow, really?" "And she's Latina!" "Oh, well, that explains it."
