If you wanted to know how to make Will Arnett cry, then you should make love to him.

That was one of the many gems provided by comedian Amy Poehler earlier this month. The Parks and Recreation star participated in a discussion at the 92Y in New York and a few of the questions were submitted via Tumblr.

Nearly 600 questions were submitted to Poehler and three lucky Tumblr users had their question answered. The blogging platform posted a short video of the conversation on its Storyboard page.

The questions ranged from what song she likes to make out to (it’s Usher’s “Climax”) and the first time she made a group of people laugh.

“We had a really fun house, lots of laughing,” recalled Poehler of her childhood. “My brother is really fun, we had a competitive streak.” But she described her screw-up at her fourth grade play, Wizard of Oz, as the first time she was unintentionally funny.

“There is a moment in Wizard of Oz when the house goes spinning, and the tornado happens and Dorothy says ‘Toto, Toto, where are you?’” said Poehler as she laughed. “The first time I did it, I was holding Toto.”
