King: Okay, we're gonna play a little game of If You Only Knew. I just throw questions. What's your funniest fan encounter?

Osbourne: Funniest fan encounter. I mean, there's been stuff like when I was young and we were doing The Osbournes, girls would ring the doorbell and I was like a teenager and there's like girls at my door ringing the doorbell of our house and you do what teenagers do.

King: Silly. What's your favorite childhood memory?

Osbourne: Favorite childhood memory is probably my dad teaching me to hunt or going camping with my dad.

King: Proudest accomplishment?

Osbourne: Proudest accomplishment. Probably when I climbed El Cap in Yosemite, which is a 3,600 foot, big, giant--

King: Because it was there. 

Osbourne: Because it was there.

King: Best part of being a father?

Osbourne: Just the continual surprise of kids. Every day is a new story.

King: Best piece of advice for your children as they get older?

Osbourne: Always listen to your gut.

King: Biggest pet peeve?

Osbourne: Biggest pet peeve--picky eaters. I cannot stand picky eaters.

King: Favorite episode or scene from The Osbournes on MTV?

Osbourne: Probably the most memorable was the first episode. I can remember it through and through. Other than that it starts to get blurred, but that whole first episode was pretty exciting.

King: Something that always makes you laugh?

Osbourne: I love the movie Step Brothers. The Will Ferrell movie. Every time it's on I just fall over laughing.

King: Childhood celebrity crush?

Osbourne: Natalie Portman.

King: Not bad. Best thing about being famous?

Osbourne: Probably, most of the time not having to wait in line at a restaurant.

King: Correct. Worst thing about being famous?

Osbourne: Probably internet trolls.

King: Internet trolls. Favorite Black Sabbath song?

Osbourne: Symptom of the Universe.

King: Least favorite Black Sabbath song?

Osbourne: Probably like the later 1978, like Never Say Die albums.

King: If you could travel back in time, where would you go?

Osbourne: I probably would go to colonial America.

King: Ah, really? When we defeated your people?

Osbourne: Exactly. I could deal with the internal struggle there.

King: Lunch with one historical figure. Who would it be?

Osbourne: Probably like Jefferson or something.

King: You know, when you think about it, if your side had won,

Jefferson would have been hunt. 

Osbourne: Probably, yeah.

King: As a traitor. Washington, they were all traitors.

Osbourne: Yeah. A few of these signers of the Declaration of Independence did get incarcerated and hung.

King: Benedict Arnold would have been hailed.

Osbourne: Probably, yeah. He would have been, there would have been statues of him in Washington D.C.

King: Jack Osbourne in ten years?

Osbourne: Battling teenage daughters. And then I don't know. Hopefully still contributing to the, you know, the flow of life.

King: Are you always going to be looking at new ideas to produce?

Osbourne: Yeah. I would eventually like to, I say I'd like to do something else, and I've been working in TV for fifteen years now and I started a a diaper bag company, making diaper bags for dads. So it's just a small little internet business me and a friend started.

King: You mean for dads to wear?

Osbourne: Yeah, because I go to the park and you see a bunch of dads walking around with floral pink bags,chasing their kids and I'm like 'Where's the bags for dads?' So we make diaper bags so it's kind of just a little adventure I'm getting into and I don't know. I don't know if I will be in TV forever.

King: Does the family remain close?

Osbourne: Yes. Most weekends we are together with my kids and Kelly and we usually go get lunch or something.

King: And when they were separated, you still were close, right?

Osbourne: Yeah. Like I said, their business is their business. I can't put myself into their relationship. So whatever's going on, that's the most intimate levels.

King: But you're glad they're back.

Osbourne: I am, of course. Maybe selfishly.
