Fran Capo: All right, well one thing he didn’t mention is that I happen to be the Guinness Book of World Records “Fastest Talking Female.” All right? So people usually ask me three questions about my fast talking. They usually ask me how did I start talking fast, what are the benefits and is this girl going to talk like this all night? So [. . .] first thing’s first, they had to teach you in the sixth grade if you didn’t answer the questions right [. . .] used to call on somebody and all you had to do was memorize ten different answers, one of the answers would be right. I kept [. . .] “sweetie” and the cop go “why you going so fast?” “‘Cause I’m trying to catch you with my words.” But the best thing I love about my fast-talking is that I can chew up my husband at six hundred and three words a minute.
