Amy Poehler is beloved by millions of TV viewers, so it's no surprise that the Parks and Recreation star has plenty of pals. But what does the 42-year-old actress look for in a best friend? In a Sept. 19 interview with Vulture, Poehler—in jest—listed her unusual and super-specific requirements.

"The things that everyone should look for: money, connections, power, sexiness, thick hair, fast cars, a sweet-ass booty, and a desire to travel. All those things," she quipped. "I haven't been able to find one person that meets that criteria."

Poehler is also looking for "someone who not only can work it but twerk it, and if you don't know the difference, beat it. I was thinking today that I don't think enough people are talking about how hard-twerking mothers work. Or how hard it is to be a twerking mother these days."

In fact, just last week the Saturday Night Live alum went on a "twerking mom" rant with E! Online's very own Kristin Dos Santos. "When you're a twerking mother, balance is really important because you don't want to go too low and blow out your butt and bust your knee. So balance as a twerking mother is important," she joked. "What I do is, I don't bring my boys with me when I'm twerking. I want to keep my twerk and my boys separate. And they really don't want to see that. It's not good for them. Also, I twerk real slow. My twerking is not about style—it's more about longevity. I start real slow."

Poehler's twerking may be slow, but her wit is faster than ever.
