Frank Morgan interviews Socrates Adams- Florou
FM: Please come in, sit down and make yourself comfortable. NOT THAT COMFORTABLE
SAF: I bet you are going to ask me how I am feeling aren't you? If you do it means that you have no respect for me.
FM: How are you feeling today?
SAF: Oh Christ. I am feeling awful. I am sad and tired. I feel terrified.
FM: What makes today special?
SAF: Barack Obama. He is the most special guy around and he makes me feel great. He is the only good thing in my life.
FM: Care for a dance?
SAF: Absolutely not. I hate dancing.
Oh go on then. A quick dance. And by dance I mean sex. And by sex I mean give me forty pounds. And by forty pounds I mean kill me.
FM: I'm sensing you’re in a good mood today, excellent. Tell me your dream . . .
SAF: My dream is that I am slowly but surely becoming a slightly better person. I am being controlled by things other than myself and those things are making me feel better. I rub myself with lard and relax.
FM: Talking of dreams, who is your dream date?
SAF: My dream date is anyone who will let me kiss them.
FM: If you and I were going on a date where would you take me?
SAF: I would let you take me somewhere I think. If you forced me to think of somewhere that I had to take you to I think I would take you to an oriental all you can eat buffet and would eat solidly for half an hour before making my excuses and leaving.
FM: That would be alright I suppose, I mean it would be really awkward but at least we'd get a good meal, that bit would be alright - I guess if we didn't refer to it as a 'date' then it would be better.
If you bought me a drink whilst we were out, what drink would you buy me, and why?
SAF: I would buy you a delicious cocktail. I would buy you a wonderful, flowing, beautifully mixed cocktail with all sorts of pungent and powerful liquors within.
FM: And how would you dispose of my body afterwards?
SAF: I would roast it with a bouquet garni and then feed it to my pet snail.
FM: I feel honoured. Are you having a good time, are you enjoying being interviewed?
SAF: It's the best thing that has happened to me today. It feels like I am being probed pretty hard. It feels good. Are you enjoying interviewing me?
FM: I am enjoying the interview immensely, it is also the best thing that has happened to me today and I've been to the pub.

FM: You are a gifted artist, my favourite is the one called 'Chris'. Is this a portrait of someone called Chris or an imagined Chris?
I assume the snail is your pet snail, who is Abe?
SAF: Thanks. Chris is someone I know. Abe is a monster. The snail is what I wish my pet snail looked like. Abe stalks me in my nightmares.
FM: I can see you have strong, confusing feelings for this Chris (Killen?) character, and by the looks of things he is a bit of a catch.
Abe seems pretty cool.
SAF: It's not Chris Killen - it's another Chris I know. He is a serious catch. Abe is very terrifying.
FM: Cadburys has just released their cheapest chocolate bar to date: the Credit Crunchie. How has the credit crunch affected you?
SAF: I have been totally unaffected by the credit crunch except for the irritation the constant news about it has caused me.
FM: Can you share with me some of your credit crunching tips?
SAF: My best tip to be unaffected by the credit crunch is to completely ignore it.
