Hi I'm Margaret Cho and I'm so excited today,
00:10
I'm going to be interviewing my mother.
00:14
Hey Mom.
00:16
Thanks for agreeing to be interviewed.
00:19
Now--
00:20
I'm so glad, finally is time for my interview
00:24
because it's very important, I have to do interview
00:28
where everyone can hear what I have to say.
00:32
Now, what I wanna know is, you taught me so many things
00:35
like how to cook and how to sew and how to play guitar
00:39
and how to sing but you never taught me how to play golf.
00:43
Why is that?
00:45
Okay the reason why I did not teach you to play the golf
00:49
because I start very late in life
00:52
so when I start to play, I was not good, I'm so good now,
00:59
if you learn from me now, it's so good, it's so good.
01:08
So interesting, okay, next question.
01:11
You know, most people consider golf
01:13
a white, rich, male sport.
01:17
How does being Korean fit in there?
01:21
I don't really know if golf is only white people
01:25
because there's so much melanoma.
01:28
I mean, is it like a rule that you have to be
01:30
a white, rich man to play golf?
01:32
I don't know if it's the best thing for the white people
01:36
because there's so much melanoma.
01:39
When I go, I have a lot of sunblock
01:43
and then I have also gloves and visor
01:48
and then they have, the white people,
01:50
they don't put this and then that's very dangerous.
01:53
Well Mom, I'm sure you've heard about how great a golfer
01:56
Kim Jong-Il used to be, I mean he got like 11 holes in one,
02:01
I don't even know, do you believe any of these stories?
02:04
I don't know because somebody say,
02:07
Oh there's a pretty hole in one
02:10
but if I don't see, then I don't believe it
02:15
but then don't say that there because
02:17
they put us in a labor camp.
02:20
Okay, last question, Mom.
02:21
What is it that attracts lesbians to golf so much?
02:26
You know?
02:27
The Diana Shore LPGA.
02:29
I don't know why lesbians like to go to see the dinosaur.
02:33
Just because you lesbian, you don't have to see dinosaur.
02:37
There is other kind of animal.
02:41
Oh, Diana Shore!
02:43
I was confused.
02:46
I thought you said it was dinosaur.
02:48
No no no, shh, no no.
02:51
Wow, well thanks Mom, we're actually out of time,
02:55
but thank you so much for agreeing to be interviewed.
02:59
I have my eye on you.
03:00
I'm still watching you out of the side of my face.
03:03
Thank you.
03:04
I can still see you, stop it.
03:08
Thank you, thank you for joining us.
03:10
We'll see you next time.
03:12
I don't know who I'll interview but it'll be just as good.
03:15
I can still see you.
