Q. Which Super Power would you like to have?

      A. Easy - flying. Although I guess we pole dancers already pretty much do that!

Q. Is it wrong for a vegitarian to eat animal crackers?

     A. What the hell are animal crackers?? This is not something we have here in Australia! Ok so I'm going to answer anyway and say only if you smear vegemite all over them first.

Q. What is one of the things you would put on your "Bucket List"?

     A. To go to Antarctica. But not to pole dance there. Because that would be hard, and cold.
