Random student
doesn't like hippies
or Saddam Hussein

Saturday

By Neal Pals
Daily Arts Writer

The Michigan Daily: Hello, is
Michael in?
Random Student: This is him.
TMD: You've been selected to
participate in the first Michigan
Daily Random Student Interview of
the year. Isn't that sweet?
R: What is this interview all about?
TMD: I'm assuming that you're a
freshman. But to answer your ques-
tion - it's a'weekly-published dia-
logue between the paper and a uni-
versity student. It's usually the step-
ping-stone to truly great things.
May I proceed now?
R: Sure.
TMD: So, are you excited about
the upcoming semester?
R: Yeah.
TMD: Classes or just hedonistic
excess?
R: A little of this and a little of
that.
TMD: Do you think the United States
will actually wage a war with Iraq?
R: Yeah, I guess so. You're not
going to give out my last name, are
you?
TMD: Absolutely not. What is
your candid opinion about a possi-
ble conflict?
R: I'd say I'm for a war if Saddam
has a bunch of shit we don't know
about.
I'm in ROTC anyways,. so I'm
pretty into this stuff.
TMD: Well, what are your
thoughts on poo?
R: Poo?
TMD: Yeah, poo poo. Feces.
R: Who doesn't like taking a shit?
TMD: What are you doing
tonight?
R: Sitting in my room, drinking.
Is this a joke or what?

TMD: Nope. This is the real deal.
R: What's your name?
TMD: Don't worry about it, sun-
shine. You'll know soon enough.
R: Gee, thanks.
TMD: Moving along, what is
your usual favorite Sunday night
activity?
R: Masturbation, for sure. No
joke. After the Sopranos.
TMD: Er, okay. What's your
favorite thing to do with a can of
peanut butter?
R: Um, what does that have to do
with anything?
TMD: Hey, just curious that's all.
Plus, it's my interview. Not yours.
Just answer the questions, O.K?
R: Ah so.
TMD: Have you ever had carnal
knowledge of anyone?
R: What's that?
TMD: You'll know it when you
have it. Any special fetishes or fan-
tasies?
R: No, do you?
TMD: I told you the format here
I ask, you tell. You have to be a
freshman.
R: Yeah, and you have to be a
hippy.
TMD: Sir, please don't get snippy
with me. What do you envision
yourself doing in, say, 20 years?
R: I wanna be a fighter pilot.
TMD: That's pretty neat. Do you
believe in "paying it forward?" It's
like doing good for other people and
making good karma.
R: Yeah, that's cool.
TMD: Well, I guess that's all I
have for you. You have a good night
now.
R: Gracias, you too.
TMD: Cheers. Hope you get to
defend America's skies some day.
R: Thanks. Later.
