Bobby Bottleservice Talks Valentine’s Day, Bro

It’s Journalism 101: Never, ever, ever conduct interviews via email. The exceptions? Talking to the president, the Dalai Lama, or Justin Bieber, or, in the case of Bobby Bottleservice, somebody that embodies the strength of the president, the spirituality of the Dalai Lama, and the sex appeal of the Biebs. For months we’ve been trying to get Bobby to talk on a host of subjects, from the protests in Egypt to Keynesian economics, but it was just last week that we were granted an e-audience with the great man. It turns out he’s saving his political commentary for a new column he’s writing for The Economist, so instead, we had him talk about Valentine’s Day. Someday we’ll actually talk to Mr. Bottleservice; until then we’ll make do with this instant classic of an email interview.
