Tuesday is here again, and HOH has cornered another Member of Congress to submit to our five questions. This week, Rep. Mike Honda (D-Calif.) talks robots, tigers and iPhones … oh my.


Q: As a Californian, what city outside your own Congressional district do you enjoy visiting the most?

A: San Francisco, to see the 49ers play [and] so I can see how great it will be when the team’s home is in Santa Clara!


Q: If you were a robot, what would you want to be programmed to do for people?

A: A chef robot fully capable of consistently beating the Iron Chef.


Q: On a deserted island, already equipped with a lifetime food supply, what are three things you could not live without?

A: My Los Tigres Del Norte CDs. My iPad 2. My sky-blue, first-generation Prius with Obama-Biden sticker on back.


Q: You are known by some to have a great sense of humor. Who is your favorite comedian?

A: Dan Nainan. A brilliant Asian-American comic. Check out his website: danielnainan.com.


Q: Smart phones: iPhone or Android?

A: iPhone. I represent Cupertino, the home of Apple.
