R: Jessica ... what is this exactly?
TMD: Well, you've been - er,
your roommate - was randomly
selected for an interview for the
Weekend Magazine, but now I guess

I have to talk to you. How does this-
make you feel, like in your loins?'
R: Uhh ... I don't really have an

sad; I think there's gonna be a party
in my pants.
R: OK, you're just scaring me.
What is this?
TMD: Haha, I was just kidding. I
told you - I'm from the Daily. So do
you have a boyfriend?
R: Yeah.
TMD: What do you think of
cooties? Do you think they'll become
chic again?
R: If you're five.
TMD: So, do you have any afflic-
R: Huh?
TMD: You know, like rickets or
R: Not really.
TMD: I have insomnia. When I
can't sleep, I sit around naked and
smoke fancy cigarettes.
(Random hangs up phone.)
TMD: Dammit.
(Interview continues, new subject)
TMD: Hi, is Mina around?
R: Yup, right here.
TMD: Oh, hi, how are you? I'm
from The Michigan Daily. How
would you like to participate in a ran-
dom interview for the paper tomor-
R: Sure, why not?
TMD: OK, so I have to tell you -
I'm starting from the middle of my
interview; I was talking to this girl
and I guess she just hung up on me.
She was a square. Pretty rude, huh?
R: Yeah, dude.
TMD: So, do you often think
about any deep philosophical issues?
What problems plague your mind?
R: Philosophical questions, eh?
Umm ... what happens when we die,
I guess.
TMD: Have you ever had an
R: Uh, no.
TMD: What about a psychedelic
R: Haha, sober or an drugs? Oh, it
doesn't matter - no.
TMD: What's the dirtiest feeling
you can think of?
R: I'd have to say swimming in my
own feces.
TMD: Yeah, that's gross. What are
you doing on Valentine's Day? You
got a girlfriend?
R: No, nothing special, no girl-
friend. Just chillin.
TMD: What kind of tunes do you
groove to?
R: Straight-up gangsta rap! Hey, is
this thing for real? Are you really
from the Daily?
TMD: Yes, I assure you, I write for
the Daily and this interview will be in
the paper tomorrow. What's your
favorite name for the penis?
R: Uhh ... Tim.
TMD: That's interesting.
R: Ha ha, actually, I like to call it
the Moneymaker.
TMD: That's interesting, too. OK,
I think we're about done here. So how
was it for you?
R: Good ... you're not gonna make
an ass outta me, are you?
TMD: Nah man, I wouldn't do
that. Was it erotic?
R: Definitely not..
TMD: Well, thank you for your
time, sir. Take it easy.
R: Yeah, take care.
