Here in this excellent interview that Joseph Shahadi conducted with me, we discussed Islam, punk rock, Bollywood, playwriting, my Deafness, India, and pretty much lots of shit. Part 2 will come up NEXT WEEK.
I want to urge all of you to join my newly formed new animal rights organization, Roach Liberation Society, so that you may help me in the fight for insects' rights. Insects deserve liberty, equality, and dignity just like our furry friends. Why do people insist on animal rights for cute, cuddky animals like dogs, cats and horses but they stay silent on the plight of insects and cockroaches?!?!
My friend, Olivia Roundabout and I have teamed up together to form the Roach Liberation Society and we are looking for new members to join in our cause for insects' rights. We have weekly meetings to discuss how we can fight assholes who want to hurt our innocent hard-shelled buddies. You may show up at the meeting un-announced; but it would be nice if you can notify me or Olivia before so that we can order a bigger pizza.

If you join, there are various things you can do.
1) distribute the flyers to all, so that all people will learn about our cause and hopefully we can convince them to care about cockroaches and insects. These are our friends; we must protect them!
2) get a T-shirt and wear it. Spread the message of insect love!
3) display the bumper sticker on your car and proudly declare yourself a member of the Roach Liberation Society!
If you refuse to join the Roach Liberation Society, you know what? Fuck you. FUCK YOU!!! You don't care about the plight of suffering insects, so I hope you suffer. Then you'll see how it feels to live in fear and worry everyday about being crushed to death! Also, we (Olivia and I) would like to caution you to be PLEASE be careful when you walk outside on the sidewalk-- do you realize how many insects you kill just by walking?!?! It would be to better to get in a car and drive-- but that's a bad idea, too. Many poor innocent flies get squashed by cars' windows while the car speeds down the highway. We live in a cruel, dangerous world where insects constantly have to live in fear of us filthy, greedy, murderous human beings.
We also want to encourage you to peacefully coexist with mosquitos. If they want to suck your blood, let them. Do NOT squash them to death! They have the right to drink your blood, so you shouldn't prevent them from doing so. Also, we think it would be nice if you can let spiders and cockroaches live in your house. It's a good idea to sprinkle bread crumbs all over the house, so that they will always have a steady supply of food and to ensure they won't go hungry.
