"I have a dream that one day, I will be a villain in a James Bond film. I have the suit. I'm working my way up. And there's two reasons why I want to be a villain in a James Bond film. One: You get to name your own henchmen. Which is very exciting, name your own henchmen. And there have been some fantastic henchmen in the past: Oddjob, with his flying hat; or Jaws, with his metal teeth. [gnashes teeth] TERRIFYING! Isn't he? But, I believe if you're going to have a henchman, you should give him a humiliating, silly name... so that he will kill anyone who hears it. That's the idea. For example: [Evil Brit voice] 'Ah, Mr. Bond... I see you've met my eight-foot-tall psychopath... Poopypants. Destroy him, Poopy! Poopy, kill him! Use your powers of poop!'"
