Ran doms want USA
to win more medals

By Manish R4a1i
Daily Arts Writer

The Michigan Daily: Hello, is
Daniel there, and if so, may I speak with
him?
Random: This is he.
TMD: Hi, This is Manish with The
Michigan Daily. You've been chosen for
Weekend Magazine's random student
interview. Do you have a little bit to do
this?
R: How much time will it take?
TMD: About 10 minutes, maybe 12.
R: OK, I'll do it.
TMD: Have you heard about all this
crap going on down in Georgia right
now?
R: Uhh ... no.
TMD: It's that guy, he runs a ceme-
tery and instead of cremating the bodies,
he just shoved them in a box.
R: Oh yeah, I've heard of that ...
that's weird.
TMD: No kidding. The reason why I
ask is because I'd like to know: When
you die, would you rather your body be
buried, cremated, mummified or left in

I

the woods for the wild dogs to eat?
R: (laughter) I'd rather be buried.
TMD: Why's that?
R: I just think it's the proper way to
go, after you're dead.
TMD: Why is being buried more
proper than being cremated?
R: That's just a personal thing, it
depends on what the person wants for
himself.
TMD: On the theme of dying ... have
you seen the "Rosie O'Donnell Show?"
R: Yeah, I've seen it ... I don't watch
it.
TMD: That's OK, as long as you
know who Rosie O'Donnell is. If the last
thing you can do before dying is have an
intimate (and I mean intimate) moment
with Rosie O'Donnell or else consume
three gallons of Meijer brand dog food,
which would you choose?
R: (laughter) That's a tough choice ...
ummmm ... I don't know, I guess I think
I'd go with talking to her.
TM: Oh, this isn't about talking to
her, my man. This is about having an
intimate moment with her. A really, real-
ly intimate moment.
R: Geez, I don't know ...
TMD: Intimate moment with Rosie
O'Donnell or three gallons of dog food.
R: I just don't know if I could pick.
TMD: I tend to agree with you ...
how could you pick between O'Donnell
and dog food? Impossibility, I think I'd
just bite the bullet and kill myself. So let
me ask you a personal question: Are you
slightly embarrassed to be an American,
knowing that the Germans are beating
the crap out of us in the Olympics?
R: No. But in your own country, it
would be nice if we won more medals
than everyone else.
TM]D: Do you know what "WWJD"
stands for?
R: I don't know what it stands for but
I've heard of it before. It something reli-
gious, right?
TMD: Yeah, it means "What Would
Jesus Do?" What do you think Jesus
would do if he saw that the Germans
were beating the crap out of us in the
Olympics?
R: I don't know, he probably doesn't
play favorites, he probably just watches,
just like everyone else. He probably
doesn't root for anyone.
TMD: Do you believe in Jesus?
R:Yes.
TMD: On a scale of I to 10, 10 being
"extremely" and I being "not at all":
How pissed would you be if I told you
that I'm from MCI and this whole
"interview" nonsense was just a way of
keeping you on the phone so that I can
now offer you a great deal on local
phone service?
R: (laughter) Probably a 10. Yeah, I'd
be pissed if you were from MCI.
TM: Because, seriously ... have
you ever thought about all the money
you might save if you switched? I could
offer you a great deal ..' what phone
service are you using right now?
R: I have no idea, it's provided by the
University. Is this really about phone
service?
TMD: No, I really am with the
Michigan Daily, so you don't have to be
pissed at all.
