Why did you pick the snippet that makes you sound insufferable?

Yes, it works much better in the full context of the answer than on its own.
I actually quite liked the stubborn insistence not to just crap out an answer to their rather inane questions - like I'm sure some people have for them - but to actually answer them honestly.
Also I'm buying Pinkwater books as we speak, so the piece definitely accomplished something!

Oh, no, no, that answer was inspired. It would be insufferable if he were insincere.

The interviewer asked some fun questions and you gave insufferably precious answers. Why can't you just pick 5 authors you like? Man. OH WHO CAN CHOSE.
