Working from deep within the bowels of
the Daily Arts room, using the random
number generator devised by Dr MacUser;
who wants to use the pseudonym "pseudo-
nym," Josh Wickerham calls yet another
random student.
The Michigan Daily: Hello?
Random: Hi.
TMD: Hey, are you a student?
R: Yeah.
TMD: Good. This is Josh Wickerham
from The Michigan Daily -
R: Oh, hey Josh. This is Josh from the
Daily editorial board. How are you?
TMD: What? You work for the Daily?
What do you mean? I'm calling people
R: I don't know what to tell you.
TMD: Maybe we can just pretend that
you're random. I don't really know you
that well. No one would have to know
that I work with you.
R: I don't think that's right.
TMD: I don't have any problems with it.
R: (pause) Well, I've got another call on
the other line. You should call someone
TMD: I guess you're right.
R: See you at edit board.

Snubbed, Josh calls another number
pulled from pseudonym's website at
TMD: Hello?
R: Hello. You've reached Counseling
and Psychological Services at the
University of Michigan. The office is
open from Monday through Friday from
8-5. If you called during regular office
hours, we are on the phone assisting oth
ers. Please leave a message because your
call is important to us.
TMD: Hi, I'm Josh Wickerham from
The Michigan Daily... (talking to those
in the room) um, do you guys think I
should really leave a message? ...
R: "if you'd like to make a call, please
hang up and try again'
Trying again...
TMD: Hi there. How are you?
R: You hae reached the office of
Human Genetics at the University of
Michigan -
TMD: (slamming the phone down).
Damnit! Your random number genera
tor doesn't work, Dr. MacUser!
Using new version .03 of Dr
Mac User's RNG, Josh calls again.
TMD:This is Josh Wickerham from
The Michigan Daily. Perhaps you've
heard of the Random Student
Interview in Weekend, etc. magazine.
R: Um... (long pause) Yeah.
TMD: Woohoo! Well, anyway, It's
your lucky night! The deal is ... out of
40,000 students on this campus, you
have been randomly selected to have
your opinion printed for the masses.
Do you have anything right off the bat
that you'd like the campus at large to
R: Do you have to use my name?
TMD: I don't have to.
R: Don't include my name. What kind
of questions do you ask?
TMD: Random ones. But I'm the one
asking the questions, OK?
R: Right, OK.
TMD: Well, then, maybe you can tell
me what you think of the free coupon
books that they pay homeless people to
hand out on campus.
R: I think they're ... I haven't really
used them at all.
TMD: Do you think anyone uses
R: I think there are some.
TMD: Would you rather give homeless
people money on a regular basis or
have them shove coupon books in your
R: I'd rather give them money.
TMD: And what do you think about
the Gideon?
R: The Gideons? I don't know.
TMD: Did you get a free Bible when
they were on campus last week?
R: No, I didn't take one.
TMD: Ok, on a more serious note, do
you think G.W Bush is handling things
adequately in the after math of this ter
rible tragedy?
R: So far I think that he's taking the
right steps. Uhh... yes.
TMD: Did you collect Garbage Pail
kids? Did you have a favorite?
R: No.Probably because I'm not sure
what they are.
