Ass+Boycotters=Assboy

T wo weeks ago, recently-beatified Eng-
lish Professor Ralph Williams moder-
ated a sit-down interview with
Michigan Daily representative, former Daily
editorial page editor Nick Woomer's Ass,
and the Michigan Daily Boycotters at Cafe
Zola. Excerpts follow:
Editor's note: The views of Nick Woomer's
Ass are not necessarily representative of the
views of the rest of Nick Woomer.
Ralph Williams: Welcome, both of you.
Thanks for coming.
Boycotters: Fuck you, racist.
Ass: Good evening. It's a pleasure to be
here.
RW: I was hoping you could explain why
your group is boycotting the Daily.
B: I lost my Daily column last August, and
... err ... the Daily is a tokenizing, racist insti-
tution staffed by members of the Hitler Youth.
We united because they didn't write enough
stories about us.
RW: Of course. Of course. I've been
informed that you planned on trying- to sign
onto the boycott the Rev. Al Sharpton?
B: Al was available. Geoffrey Feiger
wasn't.
RW: Are you pleased by the results of the
boycott?
B: Yes.
A: Yes.
RW: I see. This one's for you, Mr. Ass.

What is the Daily's official response to the boy-
cott?
A: (farting noises)
RW: Has the boycott changed the Daily's
editorial stance at all?
A: Well, the Daily is boycotting Amnesty
International, the NAACP, the United Negro
College Fund, various Head Start programs, the
Special Olympics and Korean, Chinese and
Mexican restaurants. And we're divesting from
Palestinian refugee camps.
RW: Did you know the Latin word for
whatever it is that's wrong with my hands is
megadactylus?
B: We'd like to respond to that by pointing
out that Nick Woomer's Ass suffers from the
same affliction.
RW: (to Ass) Would you like to respond to
that?
A: I would just like to point out that my ass
is a symbol of liberation only.
RW: So, why have the boycotters been so
quiet lately?
B: Our egos have been clashing.
A: Could someone please kindly pass me
the crumpets?
RW: Have the boycotters come up with any
new demands?
B: Yes. We would like to formally request
that Daily Arts Writer Joey Litman meet former
Daily Arts Writer Dustin Seibert on the play-
ground after recess.
RW: Why can't we all just get along?
A: Because the boycotters are a bunch of
self-promoting, wannabe-activist morons.
B: Then we'd have to come up with a new
shtick.
RW: Then how would each of you like to
see the boycott resolved?
B: The Daily should pay professors at the

Life Sciences Initiative to resurrect Jesus and
make him head of the paper's task force on
diversity. The task force would be in charge of
creating tolerance through viewings of "The
Little Rascals" in a multiethnic setting.
A: I agree with the resurrection of our Lord
and Savior. But following said resurrection,
Daily staffers should re-crucify Jesus on a burn-
ing cross on the Daily lawn. In a multiethnic
setting, of course.
RW: This meeting's goal was to work
toward some sort of compromise. I hope that
we have achieved this on some level. Would
each party like a last word?
B: Of course we'd like a last word. We can
see that our silly demands are hardly rational
and make us look like self-aggrandizing twits.
We wonder if you could perhaps get us on tele-
vision somewhere, or maybe just print our pic-
tures in The Daily again? We are nothing
without our campus noteriety, and, frankly, we
haven't been dating much. Please.
RW: And you, Mr. Ass? A last word?
A: Indeed. First, let me state that I am
absolutely floored by the arrogance and petti-
ness displayed here today by the Boycotters. I
have more class a in single dingleberry than
they possess as a whole. But, ultimately, I'd like
to state that these people are quaint children
with little to no concept of what it means to be
actually fight for something.

wile things to do with your time can be found any-

Smoking is hot
In the beginning there were cigarettes. Big fat cigarettes.
And the Daily editorial page encouraged everyone to smoke
them. Because cigarettes are heaven. Heaven. That's right. And
all y'all who don't smoke: Start smoking! Jesus Christ Son of
a Whore, what's wrong with you people? (I need a smoke.)
Seriously, fucking fuck sticks, what's wrong with you?
