“They look like something else and if you have those on your table, I’m going to automatically assume this is your subtle way of telling guests that you’re into you know… b*** stuff.

“Ten years.”

When it comes to glass tables, Phoenix revealed: “I’m gonna let you off with a written warning for the first time, but I know you have them because you’re just staring at your guests’ crotch while having dinner.”

With furniture covers, Phoenix claimed: “I’m going to give you a conditional discharge on good behaviour because I get it, we have pets, sometimes we want to protect our furniture.

“But I do not want to see you turning into your grandmother and keeping that cover over them all the time, because trust me, it just looks like your grandmother’s plastic one. 

“If you take them off when your guests are there, you’re going to get off easy, otherwise conditional discharge.”

Finally, Phoenix explained that large branch displays should be avoided at all costs.

He shared: “If you have those large, floral or branch displays in your home, honestly, these are just a nuisance.

“I’m going to give you probation with community service on this one and you have to plant a tree for each branch that you took, because this is annoying as hell.”
