In honor of James Lipton, we thought it would be nice to share a past interview with the charismatic host.

Steve Rogers had an opportunity to ask James Lipton the ten questions he famously asked years ago. Here were his answers...
1. What is your favorite word?
Honor.

2. What is your least favorite word?
The "N-word." No matter who uses it.

3. What turns you on?
Words, our most precious natural resource.

4. What turns you off?
Humiliation - especially toward a defenseless child.

5. What sound or noise do you love?
The most underrated "sound" of all: silence.

6. What sound or noise do you hate?
The deafening din that passes for fun in many public places today.

7. What is your favorite curse word?
It's neither obscene nor scatological; it's profane.
Jesus Christ!

8. What profession other than your own would you like
to attempt?
A classical dancer - but with this proviso: forever young and never injured.

9. What profession would you not like to participate
in?
Executioner.

10. If heaven exists, what would you like to hear God
say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates?
"You see, Jim? You were wrong. I exist. But you may come in anyway."
