Dance, Monkey: Bethany Van Delft

We put a comic on the hot seat. This week’s victim . . .
By MARC HIRSH  |  July 15, 2008

Give me one good reason why I shouldn’t just up and call you a communist right here and now.
You shouldn’t because my parents are, and they’re already on a list, and that might draw more attention to us from the . . . oops, I’ve already said too much.

Which would you rather eat: a cup of salt or four sticks of butter? Please make sure that your answer involves an animal somehow.
I’d eat a cup of salt so that I might come close to experiencing what a dolphin frolicking in the ocean might experience.

Do you ever look at your last name and think, “Van Delft is a pretty good name, but i really wish it were more Dutch”?
I do, actually. I do sometimes wish that there were a lot more consonants in a row with no vowels.

Are you more or less likely to join a polygamous cult now than you were six months ago?
I’m more likely now because the HBO show Big Love makes it seem a lot more cool. A lot more friendly and community-oriented. So I’m more likely now, I suppose. But we should probably ask my husband what he thought of that.
