I recently sat down with Olympic Gold medal winner Gabby Douglas to discuss the 2012 Olympic Gymnasts excessive use of glitter, or EUG for short.

Q: How do you know when you have enough glitter in your hair?
A: When the glitter bottle is empty.

Q: Do you ever feel guilty about all the glitterbugs that are killed each year to make glitter?
A: I don't think that's where glitter comes from.

Q: What do you say to the accusations that gymnasts use performance-enhancing hair glitter
A: They can't prove it. Plus it's not against the rules.

Q: Who cleans up all the glitter left on the gym floor at the end of the night?
A: All the girls who didn't win medals.

Q: Why don't male gymnasts use hair glitter?
A: They do. It's camo-colored so you can't see it.

Q: Why do the male gymnasts shave their legs?
A: I don't know.

Q: How do you like your gold medal?
A: I wish it was made of glitter.
Gabby Douglas: "I wish it was made of glitter."
Q: What's your opinion on Russian Gymnast, Aliya Mustafina's EUG?
Aliya Mustafina EUG
A: Ludicrous. Her approach to glitter is undisciplined, uncreative, and self-serving. Her EUG on the uneven bars yesterday did not deserve a gold medal.

Q: I didn't realize that glitter was factored into the scoring.
A: Duh

Q: Do you think EUG should be its own Olympic event?
A: It's already scheduled as an exhibition event for 2016.

Q: Do you still think glitter cancer is the Cadillac of all cancers?
A: Of course. Don't you?

After that, Gabby graciously excused herself to re-glitter her hair.
