The Michigan Daily: Hi, Is this
Random: Yeah, who's this?
TMD: Hi Isaac, you've been select-
ed for the Daily's Random Student
R: That's wonderful.
TMD: Who would win in a fight:
Tommy Amaker or Lloyd Carr?
R: I gotta go with Lloyd. I think he's
more seizing. Actually, no, Tommy
Amaker would win. Didn't Tommy
win a national title as a player?
TMD: But Lloyd's won one as a
coach. Who knows?
Anyway, what is a better movie:
"Harry Potter" or "Lord of the Rings?"
R: I haven't seen "Lord of the Rings,"
so I'm going with "Harry Potter."
TMD: What do you look for in an
ideal girl or guy? The Daily makes no
presumption of anyone's sexual orien-
R: Strong biceps and size.
TMD: What's your favorite book?
R: Total Baseball by Bill James. It's
my bible. It's all stuff no fluff.
TMD: Have you ever had a fluffer-
nutter sandwich?
R: Have I? I'm eating one right
TMD: Are you going to tonight's
basketball game?
R: Yeah, baby. We're 7-6
TMD: Is Daniel Horton not much
improved since the first six games?
R: I went to the game against Cen-
tral Michigan and almost put a bag
over my head.
TMD: What is a fillip?
R: A what? It's a screwdriver or a
61-year-old man I call "dad."
TMD: Actually, a fillip is the term

for when one holds back his middle
finger with his thumb and then lets it
go, flicking someone. The definition
of pusillanimous is?
R: Um, I know this one. Uh ...
alright, I'm stumped.
TMD: I believe it's to be cowardly.
Does that ring any bells?
R: Ring any bells? Was it in Harry
Potter or Total Baseball?
TMD: Have you ever seen two ani-
mals copulating on one of those nature
programs? If so, which were your
R: Yes, I liked watching snails. It's
incredible; they have their sex organs
in their neck and they impregnate and
get pregnant at the same time.
It's like being in the middle part of a
TMD: That's definitely going in the
paper. Have you ever smoked drugs?
TMD: Have you ever been strung
out on the pot?
TMD: What's the weirdest thing
that you did while on the pot?
R: I once ate Chinese food for three
straight days, but weed doesn't affect
me much.
TMD: Have you ever been drunk?
R: I am right now. I'm drinking
Miller Lite out of a can.
TMD: What's your favorite beer?
R: I love all beer equally except for
Red Dog, Miller High Life and Coors
Extra Gold.
TMD: Do you have a girlfriend?
TMD: How long have you been
R: About six months.
TMD: What's the nicest thing that
you ever did for her?

"I'm resolving to actively partici-
apte in my wedding planning. I'm
making progress."
- Muisic senior Jon Ophoff

"To go to the gym, but not
h everyday."
- LSA seniorAnnie Hunsche
Compiled by Graham Kelly

R: I made her a three course meal
and did all the dishes.
TMD: Have you ever heard of Tunji
R: No, I have no idea what that is.
TMD: Wager a guess as to who/
what that is.
R: Is it the Ojibwa teacher here?
TMD: No, Tunji used to play bas-
ketball at Boston University.
Can you break dance?
R: I'm afraid not.
I've always thought of taking class-
es, but I think that if you're Jewish you
have to start at the age of four to ever
pick it up.
TMD: Are you proud of being Jew-
R: Occasionally.
TMD: When? Hanukkah?
TMD: What's the better expression:
"Word Life" or "Holla Back"?
R: Holla back, no question. I've just
got a thing for double-1 words that end
n "a."
Like "hella," "holla" ... hula spelled
incorrectly, you know.
TMD: What's your favorite type of
R: Do soundtracks count? Those
TMD: What is your favorite sound-
R: "Aladdin."
TMD: Favorite song on "Aladdin?"
R: Everybody's favorite, "A Whole
New World."
Although, I do like that riff-raff,
street rat refrain. I believe it's number
five. [Singing] Riffraff... street rat ...
TMD: If you could make out with
one celebrity, who would it be and
R: That's a tough one. I'm gonna go
with Jesus.
TMD: What's the reason for that
R: He looks like a really good cud-
TMD: What would your girlfriend
R: She'd be happy. She's Catholic.
TMD: Would you be on "Joe Mil-
R: Yeah, probably. As a girl or a
guy? Yeah, I'd be on it.
TMD: What's the difference
between disorganized and unorgan-
R: Uh, disorganized is like a state
and unorganized is an adjective.
TMD: Couldn't you say "He's dis-
R: Yeah, I guess. What is the differ-
TMD: I don't know. I've always
wondered. That's why I asked.
R: There is none.
TMD: When was the last time you
engaged in tomfoolery?
R: Two nights ago. I was playing
poker until the wee hours.
TMD: Did you win?
R: Yes, I always win. I won about
$30. A friend of mine lost pretty early
on, but he always loses early.
TMD: Nice. Anyway, that's it.
Thanks for your time. Bye.
