Let me tell that that was an amazing introduction. And you don't realize you're old. To you hear that, you know, it's like, Damn, you don't we don't say all. We say timeless. You know what it is interesting. I mean I would at there's a I don't consider I mean, I know I'm old by bud birth year. Saying that, you know I've been in the game a while. I've done drag for twenty five years, but I never consider myself timeless or legendary or iconic, because I think that word gets used so frequently nowadays with no substance. You know what I mean? I was recently watching that Tina Turner documentary on was HBO and here it was. Was So amazing and I...

...went to tweet about it, telling people you need to see this. You know, this woman is a legend and as I'm tweeting it going. No, there needs to be a better word for Tina Turner. You know what I mean. Legend isn't good enough, because now they say these stupid little bitches on drag race are legendary. You know what I mean. I'm like, you need to save it for the real people like share and Dolly and and Tina Turner. You know, those are true legends. So those are people that I think that have been successful and done things. I go. I've been lucky wearing a wig twenty five years and I haven't been shot yet, so I'm pretty good. Pretty good. I don't know if it's luck. And you know, we have used that word so often that it really has lost it's flair. I mean I called my postmates driver iconic just because, you know, he showed up on time. But when? But when you look at at you know the list that are made of the of the top performers from the community, the top drag Queens, you know, Bianca is always listed there and you know, maybe you don't feel it because you're right in the middle of it and we know you're a hard worker. It's not luck. You know, ten twenty years down the line and your your your looks and your humor are still part of the community. Maybe that's when you'll be like, okay, I'm a little iconic. Okay, well, you know, I think I think the hustle is important. I mean I like to before, I enjoy working and I'm hustle now more than ever. I never thought that this drag race opportunity, whether I want or not or whatever, this amazing platform that puts you in people's living rooms. Did I ever think that it would be sit back, smoke a cigarette and see what the show is going to do for me? Now? That was never the case because I didn't know the outcome, I didn't know what was going to happen, I didn't know what the end result in editing was going to be for their narrative, which I signed up for. So I knew I had to hit the ground running and I made it a point to go out and do as much as I possibly could. I took every gig there was and then from that is when I started actually touring, because that's ideally what I wanted to do, because after so many years of being in bars, which is nothing wrong, nothing all being in bars, but I had done it for many, many years and you know, some nights too good, some nights a bad. Some night this two people, some nights there's a hundred. So that was basically the rat race that I was playing, along with...

...a day job that I thought okay, if I can just tour, I'm going to tour my ass off and focus on that, and that was kind of the beginning of me doing it and now I'm on my fifth tour that I'm traveling the world with. We do it in chunks everywhere, so I've been very fortunate on that level. But it's also been a conscious choice to say this is the lane I'm staying and I don't do music videos. I'm not going to lip since some stupid song. Let the other Queens do it. If music videos made money, I would have done twelve of them, you know what I mean. But it doesn't work. It doesn't work. You know, it's funny when some of these queens release like they're eighth music video in two months, you're like, how are they paying for? What does they're all in debt. That's the crazy of it. You know, I don't understand it. Like of course you can put it in money into something and have an investment, but if the outcome made sense. Madonna Tours, for Christ's sake, because that's just the way to go. She hasn't made any videos lately. So I think it's important just to know that. And I always stay in my lane. And it's very hard when you come from this drag race fandom and and the groups of people that feel the need to compare you and say, well, she's doing this and she's doing that and you should do this. You can't get in your head with it, you know, you just have to go this is what I do and somebody's gonna like it, somebody's gonna hate it, but I got to just stay in this lane. Let's talk a bit about your your childhood, growing up in a Cuban and hunter and household with for sibling. Was it just like a hot mess of noise and and ups and downs and food and lots of cooking, lots of bad attitude, broken English rules that didn't make any sense whatsoever. But Um yeah, I just assumed that that's how everyone grew up. You know, I didn't know any different until I saw maybe the Brady Bunch and I thought wow, look at these white people. But it was a completely different world. But it was so accepting and I don't. People often complained about the childhood or say they were misunderstood or things are weird or or, you know, their family didn't understand their gayness and they cry about it. Well, that's not me. I go. Everything that they did is a product of why I'm who I am today. So I have no regrets, no remorse, I have no sad story. I go. I made it out alive. I'm happy. You know. Now, when did...

...your personality first start to form? Was it in this family unit to have your voice heard above you know, like I said, force to blames? Well, I often say this. I'll say you know, I was called a faggot before I ever sucked a Dick. So it was just one of those things where, you know, I knew that I was different. I didn't know if that meant gay. I didn't know what that meant. I knew that I was so much, I guess you would say, and embarrassment by just being eccentric or being flamboyant or being artistic, which was just in me. You know, I just loved all of these things. I loved dynasty and I loved everything that was caddie and glamorous and and I think my parents just didn't know what to do with it. And Baby, we're concerned about what society was going to think of me and, what worse, what society was going to think of them as parents. You know, no one wants to raise this different child. So I think through that I was able just to find my voice, you know, I found my way through it and I knew that some people, you know, people in school, didn't understand me. But the advantage was I found theater, you know, and finding theater was a whole new grouping of people that for once said, Oh, you're talented, you're not crazy, you're not insane, you know, this is this is your path, this is where you need to go. And that kind of has been my passion, which was theater in costume and acting and performing. And, you know, once you can release that, then you go, okay, I'm safe, this is the stage, this is where I want to be, and that was kind of the narrative for me growing up. Just going get to high school, get through this, move to New York, find your way. I didn't think I was going to be a drag queen, but it was definitely part of the journey. You know, in the journey was I had great people that encouraged me along the way. What was the first kind of costume that you design that you were like, wow, I'm really good, I could make something of this. We're going to laugh your ass off. But when I was fifteen years old there was that, there's the Miss Louisiana Paget, missers Louisiana, Mr as, the married women, and there's a woman by the name of Mary West who I was working at the local dinner theater and they were doing a production of sugar, which is the musical version of some like it hot. So I was helping out this woman named Mary Martin, who not the Real Mary Martin, but Mary Martin who was costuming at this elderly lady who was...

...swamped. So I was helping her, at fifteen, get the costumes together and from that Mary West, Mrs Louisiana, asked me to design her state costume, which was Mardi Gras, or our New Orleans, for a pageant, and that was the first thing I did and the local newspaper, back in the day when newspapers were a big deal, ran a story on me and the headline said asked him about Hem's and it was about my life and how I got to make this costume for her. And the next day when I went to school, every son of a bitch I saw what about hands? What about Hamms? But that was my first introduction to doing anything. I guess big, you know, and and this was just exciting because I got to create this ridiculous and good sea costume for this woman at fifteen years old. So that was the start of it. Now, moving to New York from Louisiana, we know the theater scene was probably quite quite different. You worked at blooming Dales. Tell me tell me a funny bloomingdale story and what we're from. The biggest shocks in New York that you were like, wow, I need to get used to this. Well, when I was to talk, yea was one thousand nine hundred and ninety three, I believe. Yeah, ninety three when I came up here and the first time. And what was so wild about it is at the time the big deal was waterproof shoes, because it's working in the shoot department and waterproof was important. You couldn't say water that's when we started saying water resistant. So water resistant doesn't necessarily mean water proof. But you got to be careful with the women on the upper east side when you say the wrong thing, because if the shoe gets wet, that bitch will bring it back, and that we experienced a lot there because of the snow and you know the elements here in New York City. So if you want to tell us, seventy six year old Jewish woman, that shoe is waterproof, you'd better be prepared. You better be prepared because if it gets one drop of water, that bitch brought them back. So I had a lot of that, which is then we had to change it to water resistant, which then they go, you mean water proof and I got no water resistant. Yeah, so that was that was a big problem that I had and I didn't last long. I didn't last long there at all and I didn't Lastt long in New York that that round...

...and then I went back home because they ran out of money and it was a little overwhelming and that's when drag started for me, which was after that. And you did drave for the play pageant. What was your drag like then? Is it close to what we see now? Was it? Was it very musical, theater idea of drag. Well, what a little pageant. What happened was it's a brilliant show based on a beauty pageant and it's six men, I believe six, yea six men that are playing different regions of America and they're vying for this fictitious crown of Miss Glamorous. And there was a role. Usually, which is such a funny thing about the show, there's six contestants and they cut down to five finalists, which is the funniest thing because one bitch gets eliminated. Usually the person who gets eliminated well then return as the returning queen from the year before who had gained a lot of weight and she was giving up her title. So usually it's one character playing two roles and this particular production they decided they wanted to keep it fair and so they would have all six contestants and they wanted someone else to come in and play the other role. Come to me. So I was already there doing wigs, costumes and makeup. They said, since you're here, would you throw this dress on and come in and play this part? So basically I'm covering a costume change, you know. So it's a two minute bit it's a sight gag. You know. I don't know if I can get away with it nowadays, you know, because I was wearing a fat suit and someone would say, AH, fat PHOBIC, but this was in the theatrical production. So I so I did the part art and, you know, beginning it was two minutes long and then the next week it was five minutes long and then the next week it was ten minutes long. So it became my bit because I was just covering, fucking with the audience and filling the time that I needed to fill and I really enjoyed it. And so from that that particular look. Was It really a Bianca look, so to speak, but that was definitely the start of my love of hair, of me wearing it, because all these years I never wore it, you know, I made stuff for other people. So this was the first time that I actually experienced, you know, the excitement of being in full drag...

...doing it. Now you started to do like a club events after that. What do you miss about those early days of doing drag before you became, you know, this hit and under scrutiny every time you you show up? I miss my youth. That's what I missed. My youth. No, you know, I often it's very interesting. Every now and then at an airport I will have a moment in the Delta Lounge when I something will come to me and I will go, Oh my God, I forgot all about that. Or the magic of social media when someone tags me in a photo, when I go shit, what year was that? You know. So what's happened to me in my life? The markers for me I've always been eleven and then it's always been hurricane Katrina and then it has been drag race. That's a now covid so everything kind of falls into those slots. So when I'm saying something, I oh, this is before drag ray, so this was before eleven, you know, to reference the story. So there's a lot of moments for nine eleven. That a blur that I don't remember that chunk of time. But I you know, I've said it before, that all of those things, all of those gigs, all of those fifty dollar gates, changing in the bathroom, having no light in the dressing room, the hotel rooms where you had no money to actually even put down for incidentals, all of that is something I've never forgotten and all of that has all been a part of this, which makes me appreciate all of the fabulous things I have now. You know, and I think that's what's missing from a lot of drag queens nowadays. I think if they've never worked in a bar, never had an act, never dealt with an audience. And I'm not saying everyone should, but I mean we live in the instagram world now where they look gorgeous in a photo but there's no substance. So I'm not saying. I'm not saying that they're doing it wrong, I just mean you do have a better sense of self and professionalism if you've been around the block, especially some shitty blocks, you know better. You know and I think that that's one of the reasons why I've been successful with work is because I'm a I'm a go getter. I go and do it, you know, on my own. I'm not going to worry about all this fanfare and all this production and all this madness. I know I got to get out and hustle because it ain't gonna last forever. We celebrate the twenty five anniversary of...

...rent this year. What did you learn from the character angel the most? Well, I was thirty playing an eighteen year old. What the hell was I thinking? Well, it's like the cast in the movie. It's fine, girl, let me tell pumping on a table at that age. Oh my God, no. Um. Well, first of all, I love the show, you know, and and in the beginning I just was I assumed that I was asked to do it because I was already a drag queen and Drag Queen, Drag Queen role and it wasn't until I got into the role that they was nothing like me. And rarely do I get to play a character that has nothing like me because usually, you know, and musical theater, I played MAZEPPA in Gypsy, I've played the MC and cabaret, which is always that wink, wink, I'm, you know, an evil clown kind of approach, where this was being a human being, being, a person that was, you know, had aids and that had a boar friend that he loved, didn't trying to find their way and it was something that I just from a theatrical experience. I had never had a moment like that in my life and it was truly one of the best things that I think that I was ever able to do, and also very moving. You know, it just exposed this other side of theater for me that I had not had before. Well, and I you know, in your presentation, you know, we see, you know, a big costumes and big makeup, but I believe that you have the sincerity in this chemistry that really comes from working in the theater and the blood, sweat and tears and it comes from a very sincere place where you want the audience to be entertained and hear the story. It's not just did I get the laugh, that I get the laugh. You are an entertainer, what with the game with the audiences. You know, I appreciate an audience so much and it's because, you know, I've been there with two people. You know, I've been there with three people, I've been there with two thousand. I did wimbly arena where there was fifteen thou and it's crazy pants, but you can't get in your head with it. You have to go okay, I'm just doing what I'm doing and I love what I'm doing and I shockingly like people. I mean I generally do, and it's important with comedy in particular, because I do a meet in Greek before my show so I do a hundred, fifty...

...to two hundred people that I meet and we take photos and we do it early on in the show, only because they're still scared of me. I still look somewhat decent and they're not drunk yet. So I get to meet those people and usually they are the first twenty rows. So I meet the married couple, I meet the gay couple, I meet the ex husband, I meet that this. So those of them my plants that are there. So even if the whole show goes to shit, I've got those twenty rows of those people that I've met. I know their quirks, I know their problems, I know what they're about, and that is what helps with for me, you know, I see them and it helps me with the show. So that's one of the things I enjoy. Enjoy meeting people. I love hearing their stories and I love hearing the shit stories they have about me, which makes me cackle. You know, they're their ideas and views and they always say, you're taller than I thought you were, you're skinnier than I thought you were, you're not pretty in person. I love it, you know, and that's just my family, that's just my family. Now they're smart insult humor and there's just malicious humor that's not funny. What makes a good joke or a good set up? Well, I think it's truth. Truth, truth is all you've got, you know I mean, and and self awareness, I think is very important. I think nowadays it's a very tricky it's very tricky situation when you're dealing with with comedy in particular, because someone will say, I think it was ricky Gervet who said right, which I really appreciate it. It was you know, when people say you can't say that, of course I can say whatever I want. You don't have to think it's funny and you can go about your business. It's a good system and I thought what a brilliant way of saying it. It's now everybody's saying you can't say this or I'm offended. You know what happens to people to get offended. You're going to die like the rest of us. It doesn't fucking matter. So I'm I come from a place of if it's not your cup of tea, move the fuck on. You know, don't drink it, don't come near it, don't watch it, but don't ask me to change or ask me to alter to justify some fuckery that suits you. I don't get that. I don't get that and he's it's it's especially relevant in the gay community because gays love to put you on a pedestal and...

...then tear you down. I mean, that's just how it is. So, truthfully, I'm no advocate, I am no you know, ring leader. I am not trying to run for office, I'm not your mother, I'm not your grandmother, so I don't have to answer to any of you. So when you don't put me on a pedestal, you know I'm here in my little corner doing my thing and if if it works for you, right, and if it doesn't, by keep moving. You know, talking about being on a pedestal. Every time you step on stage or we see you in a video or you post something, we always have this expectation of what Bianca's going to do, what she's going to bring. How does that play with your psyche of Roy, the performer behind it? Like whether you're tired, whether you're sad about something, you always have to be on because that's what your fans expect. How do you deal with that kind of pressure? We try to treat it as normal as you can. I mean, look, I'm not a you know, I'm not a doctor, I'm not, you know, dealing with stress on that level. So I think that if you want to play the game, if you go out, for instance, I've been in New York for the past two weeks and as I've been here it's been great. I see people in the street and it's like hi, how are you mind if I get a picture? Of course, you know I'm out on the street. Of course it's not, you know, a problem. It comes with the territory. So I mean I've had many years where no one wanted a photo. So it doesn't bother me in the least. And I think that also, who I am on stage and who I am in real life are very similar. I mean, obviously it's heightened when you're on stage, so you're not really getting a different person, you know. So it's very easy just to go hello, how are you whatever. It does get tricky when people look at me and say read me, read me, read me, and I'm like, well, how this works, asshole? I mean, you know, like literally, just somebody walking up with a stroll are going to read me. It doesn't work that way, but I could be a little cunty, but get good. So I do find that fascinating. But I think how lucky, you know, how lucky that anybody even gives a shit to say hello or take a picture. You know, that's where I come from. Now, you've been interviewed so many, so many, so many times. What is something that you never...

...get asked about that you're like, you know, I really would love to talk about that. Or this is a part of my life that people don't know, that people should know, that I like to read. I like to read, not just people. I'm a book I'M A book fanatic. I'm very nosy. So I love any biographies. I love to know how people lived, especially I'm reading one right now about Sammy Davis Jr, who I absolutely adore. Also that another thing you need to know about me that's crazy is that if you ever go on like that, who wants to be a millionaire show and you need that friend to call, I know the most random trivia and fuckery, pop culture bullshit that I would like to admit. So yeah, those are those are a couple of things that I don't know if people know about me, because I don't really talk much about it, but yeah, that would be it. So if you ever get on that show, call me because I know the most random shit. That would help you when some money. You know, it's funny. I am so nosy as a person. That's why I love what I do and I can't stop reading biographies from Entertainment People, from Sherlin Mcclain to Rosal and Russell to, you know, to have Danna White. But WHO Vana White? I just got van a white, a John Collins one I just ordered to I mean like every now and then in the middle of the night I forget about someone and then I go to Amazon, I go what it is? They done away? They done away. Is One that I just ordered Sammy Davis Junior. I'm reading right now, which is fascinating, and I love Sammy Davis Junior as a performer. What was the other one that really got me? Good, saws like a bore. Oh Jos, like a bore. I have to add that one about May West that I absolutely love. To is other book that's brilliant. It's called them the wit and wisdom of May West, and it's just a small little book that is full of all of her oneliners that you will cackle for days. So that's that's a must have. All right, I'm sanitized. You're about to hit the road in September, like you said it it's your fifth show. How do you keep a one person show fresh? What can we expect from unsanitized? Well, I mean after this year, two thousand and twenty eight, come on now, bitch. I mean there is so much to talk about. There's so much that happened. I it's very funny because I recently switched health insurance. This is a nonrelated store, but you can understand how crazy this was. So I...

...had to get a new doctor, and so what they have to do? Of course, pre screening and all this bullshit, because you can't just go to a doctor anymore. So the winners calls me on a specific day and she's asking me a series of questions and it's, you know, the usual. Do you drink alcohol? Yes, how many times a week? And I'm like, well, I don't know. Oh, it's like two to three, three day, six day. I said two thousand and twenty. We Survived Two thousand and twenty. Big was drinking every fucking day. She's like we do you ever feel depressed. Yes, if you ever feel like you want to kill yourself many times. Of course, it was two thousand and twenty. All of the rules and bets are off. So I'm just excited to get back out on the road. There's so much that we can talk about. I mean, you know, I mean the insanity of the world and the place that we're in and I can only hope and I can only hope, and the way things are looking is that it's a new renaissance, you know, that it's a new way of life, that people maybe get off their phones and go and enjoy art, music, theater and realize connecting the people is what you need to do. So I'm just I'm excited and ready to do that. I'm just ready to get back out and, you know, talk all my shit the show. I always say expect the unexpected, because it's one of those things you never know where it's going to go. So I don't want to spend the whole hour and a half talking about covid but it definitely will be a part of it. I don't want to spend all night talking about trump, but obviously that will be a part of it. I don't want to discuss how much weight I've lost, Gate Weight, I've gained weight, I've lost again. All of that's going to be there and and just living in our, you know, post covid life. You know, that's what we did to talk about. Now. What do you like on the road? Are you hooking up? Are you going to the after parties? Are you in bed on the tour bus by seven, like, what's happening, honey, honey? Well, one thing you have to know about me too, is that I also, Oh my God, I'm like so flemmy. I don't know why you can edit that part. Crazy. I don't know. It's this weather here. Okay. So well, it's a very tricky game when you're on the road because I usually when I'm in whatever country I'm in, for instance America, I'll be traveling on a tour bus and I like to do at least five to six shows in a row in a different city every night. So I don't like to...

...have too much time in between. I don't like a day off or any of that. We only do it for union reasons that I have to take off. So I like to hit it hard. The show and the game is really kind of easy. You get into town and around maybe noon that day, three o'clock, you're allowed into the theater. I unpack all of my shit, I get ready for a me greet. At thirty, I do the meet and greet, finish that. Then the show starts at eight. Once they open the house, I go in, I do the show, I'm in the shower by thirty eleven. I get out of drag, put on my pajamas, get back on the bus, pass out, maybe take as an x that I bought port of Yarda, and then I wake up in the next city and do it all over again. So it's really not that exciting on the road, but that's best how I like it, you know. I like to keep it moving and I just like to you know, you get your rest where you can, but you also know that things change, things happen. Sometimes you delayed, sometimes the theater is not open, sometimes things are pushed back. So you got to be ready to rock and roll, and that's where the advantage of me being by myself, so to speak, is easier, you know, because it's just me. I get myself together, sometimes quickly, sometimes I've got all day, but it all kind of becomes this Cathartic process, you know, and it gives you a chance to to kind of work on you know, I can then, but if you do six nights in a row, then you go okay, so what worked really well out of four of those nights? What didn't work? What do I need to eliminate? What do I need to work on? And, you know, as the small group of people that travel with me are then become my soundboard, then I go okay, what do you think about this? Did you think that was right? Did you like this, or should I just get rid of that joke all together? So it kind of just like this creative routine that you go through. So's it's it's the best. I mean it's it's the way I like to travel most. And also you really can't complain, you know, because if I sat at home and we're writing joke and the joke up, the joke which you end up doing, you don't know how it's going to work until you're out there on the road. So you have to come in with more material than you ever thought and then you narrow it down to what works. Now, is it hard to date Bianca? Well, you need to ask six people...

...that committed suicide. I I I could, I'm sure it would be. I mean I've had a few relationships, but I also know, and I'm wise enough to know, that you can't have it all. So therefore I go if I can manage a career and on that trajectory of worrying about that, that's where I'll stay. If people come into my life and they enhance my life or they're added it's lovely great, but I don't spend my time looking for it. I have several of my drag friends who, you know, serial date and have to have a boyfriend every five minutes. I am not that person. I prefer money. I prefer money. Well, you know, am anybody in any form of entertainment. It's a little isolating and then you know you're doing a one person show and, like you said, it's your brand, it's your business. You responsible for yourself. I mean, I'm no Jlo. I mean I am no Jlo honey. I know when it that bitch that hook or just goes from man to man. How many rings does she have at this point? I mean honest, you know, I'm all supportive and tell like going back to Ben AF flack. I'm like what the hell are you thinking? Like what? As long as they don't make another movie together, we're good. That's all I know. Ge they to bad enough. We a dily call the ente back on drag race. We don't need that. All right now, final question. I know it's super, super cheesy, but you know, I think our community is looking for inspiration for this post covid time. So what is your pride season message, or what's your message to your fans? I would say get out, get out. We've sat home long enough. Get Out, go live and if anything, two thousand and twenty stalls that you just can't worry about the bullshit. You can't worry about what I mean. It was so amazing to be in New York for pride and it was also beyond amazing that they didn't have to be in a wig. I was so happy not to have to work, but I got to experience it and there's just an energy that's out there now. I think people realize that, hey, we got one life. You know, we lost a whole fucking year, and insane year, not to mention it in saying four years before that. Is that you...

...go go out live, enjoy your life and and don't be affected by the ideas of the games or these rules that people make up. It's INS insanity. You just gotta live and find what's best for you. You know I mean, we've sat long home enough. We've been depressed, we've been mad. Now get out and just live and have a drink, please, have a drink. I'm always suspicious of people that don't drink. I know vegans and and sober people, even though we love them and we need them. Yeah, don't trust them. I don't trust a drag queen that doesn't drink. I mean that to me is shady. Now he said I stopped drinking because I was really bad. I got okay, I get it, but some of these bitches don't never touched alcohol, never touched outcohol never exists. All right, tell everybody where you want them to find you and follow. And where can we be buy tickets for unsanitized? Well, everything goes through my website. So you can go to the Bianca del Riocom or you can find me on Instagram at the Bianca del Rio. You could find me on twitter at the Bianca del Rio. You can find on only fans at the Bianco. I'm kidding. I haven't gone there yet. I have not gone to look. Hey, with your flemy throat, it's only flems only. Imagine Bianca prelubricated. Yes, so you can find all of that out. Tickets are on sale now for the American leg of the tour, and what's interesting is, I know everybody's saying, especially in other countries, when are you coming here or when are you coming there? Well, obviously we're just trying to sort theaters, venues and all of that. America was the first to open up and following this particular tour I'll be going back into the musical everybody's talking about Jamie in the UK. I'll be going on tour with that as well. So I'll have a minute to go. I'll do on tour and then I'll go into that tour and then I'll come back to my tour. So it's what's happening. It's what's happening right now. It's like all of a sudden the floodgates are open. Yeah, that was some of the in the day. Now that, like all of these rules have been lifted and we're back to the to life. It's just like Bam, it just happened. It's like all of a sudden, there's a Dick in your ass...

...and here we are. There was no for play, there was no kissing, there was no fingering. We going right to fucking, right to fuck it, and we love it. Why waste that time? Why waste that time?
