The 10 Funniest Things Amy Poehler Said In Her Reddit AMA Amy Poehler scarf gif


Amy Poehler did a Reddit AMA this afternoon to promote her new book Yes Please, which is available now. (Did you hear me? It’s available right now. Why aren’t you running out to the nearest bookstore?) Fans asked her questions about her life and about her career and about clothing made out of fruits and vegetables and just everything, really. She was her usual delightful self and gave some great responses. And since this is Amy Poehler we’re talking about, a lot of those responses were pretty darn funny.

So we decided to pick out the funniest of the bunch and share them with you. Just in case you want to know what Adam Scott smells like or why Amy still hasn’t played Batman yet. Seriously, what’s taking so long?

1. On how she feels about orange tic-tacs:

I’m indifferent about that question and those tic-tacs.

And I’m sorry if that causes a stir.

I don’t know about you, but I’m considering writing her a very strongly worded letter about this.

2. On when her rap album drops:

It already dropped. And by “dropped” I mean “the label dropped it and somebody needs to pick it up and make it.”

But I got a lot of underground cassette tapes floating around. And any artist will tell you that’s where the real shit is.

I hope those cassettes include more raps about butter.

3. On what Adam Scott smells like:

Adam Scott smells like… lemons and possibility. Future and peppermint. Loyalty and vanilla ice cream.

That sounds lovely and delicious. I think Ben & Jerry’s just found their newest flavor!

4. On why she hasn’t played Batman:

Cuz I don’t want to win ALL the awards, it would be unfair!

She makes a good point, but I still think it’s long overdue.

5. On if she’d rather wear a necklace made of grapes or onion shoes:

Oh, I’m gonna have to go with the grapes. Is this some kind of personality test to find out if I’m a sociopath? Who would pick shoes made out of onions? Somebody who’s angry at their mom.

Amy Poehler would rock a grape necklace. I fully expect her to wear one to host the Golden Globes.

6. On which pick-up line will work on her every time:

“Are you tired? You should leave this party and go to sleep.”

Oh, you’re right! Thanks! Bye!


7. On her upcoming movie roles:

We just finished a movie called “The Nest” that is coming out next year! And I’m also doing a voice in the new Pixar movie “Inside Out” which is coming out in June, and it’s a great film, can’t wait for people to see it. And catch me as a dungeonmaster in “50 Shades of Grey!” You can’t tell it’s me cuz I’m wearing a mask!

Well, I now have a reason to go see Fifty Shades, other than it looking like a total train wreck.

8. On the funniest thing to happen on the Parks and Rec set:

We have so many funny times on set, we do a LOT of goofing around, it’s loose and goofy, and one of the most fun things was – we do this thing where we all forget our lines… oh wait, that’s just us forgetting our lines. No wait!

It makes for some very funny bloopers, so go ahead and keep forgetting.

9. On who she’d sleep with and how she’d die on Game of Thrones:

If I was a character, I would sleep with everyone, but let’s be real, the Dothraki are where it’s at. And I would never die! I would just do some kind of weird, you know, witch thing that couldn’t be killed!

I now need Amy to guest star on Game of Thrones like I need air.

10. On her go-to karaoke song:

Um…my go-to karaoke song is “We didn’t start the fire” by Billy Joel. Sung in Spanish. And in a very high key.

Petition to have her sing exactly this on Parks and Rec next season.
