Random student celebrating his birthday early

The Michigan Daily - Weekend Magazie


By Neal Pals
Daily Arts Writer
The Michigan Daily: Hola ... is Tom
Random: Hold on, lemme check ...
TOMMY! Phone! ... Hello?
TMD: Hey! I'm with The Michigan
Daily; you've been selected to participate
in this week's Random Student Interview.
R: That's great.

TMD: So, are you ready for a knee-
slapping good time?
R: Yeah, I always love knee-slapping
good times.
TMD: Excellent. Would you rather be
a rapscallion or a scalawag?
R: A scalawag. They seem a lot cooler.
TMD: What have you done for break?
R: Gone out and drank. My birthday is
coming up, so I've been celebrating early.
TMD: Well, good for you. When was

the last time you were in love?
R: Umm, last Saturday; my girlfriend
was in town.
TMD: Does that make you the captain
of her heart?
R: Sure.
TMD: Were you aware of this week-
end's Divestment Conference?
R: I was, but I don't really know much
about it, except for what came out in the
paper. Isn't it about some kind of invest-


As an engineer in
the U.S. Air Force,

ment in Israel?
TMD: It's actually "divestment." It's a
pretty controversial issue.
R: Oh right, yeah, I guess I'm pro-
divestment if it benefits suppressed people.
TMD: Have you ever had trouble
divesting yourself from a toilet?
R: Ha ha ha. Yes, a couple of times.
TMD: What is your favorite genre of
R: I listen to all kinds of music. But
right now, it would be Rap and R&B.
TMD: What's your favorite genre of
R: Big Booby porn.
TMD: Do you know what "mundun-
gus" means?
R: No clue.
TMD: What do you think it means?
R: Maybe it's like some kind of disease?
TMD: What is your absolute worst fear?
R: A losing football season.
TMD: Have you ever not remembered
an entire evening?
R: Normally, things are OK at the
start, but they get hazy the more I drink.
But I always remember getting home.
TMD: That's good. Do you see any
virtues in binge drinking?
R: Yeah ... you get drunk way faster,
people are more entertaining and far
more attractive.
TMD: What is the worst thing you can
possibly take a shot of?
R: Bile. It's nasty stuff.
TMD: I agree. Do you think insanity
can be cool?
R: No, not really. It can make you do
some fucked up things.
TMD: What is your favorite synonym
for "cool?"

R: Awesome.
TMD: Awesome. What is the last
thing that made you cry?
R: Definitely the holding call that
brought us a loss at Notre Dame.
TMD: Ah, yes. A tragedy. What is the
most beautiful thing you have ever seen?
R: That website where this chick takes
off her shirt when you run the mouse over
her body. But I lost the link to it.
TMD: Probably for the best; Can't
have that around the ole ball and chain.
Do you enjoy taking long walks along the
R: Nah, I'd rather be in the water. I
guess I like walking through water.
TMD: Hmm, that sounds hard. But I
guess it's cool.
If you could travel through time, what
period would you visit?
R: Ancient Rome. And I'd bring
back lots of stuff so people would
think I was cool.
TMD: Would you be a gladiator?
R: No, I'd get my ass kicked.
TMD: Do you know what chaos
theory is?
R: Nope. But the dude from "Jurassic
Park" talked about it a lot.
TMD: Maybe you should watch that
movie again, then.
Have you ever sniffed anyone's under-
pants before?
R: No way, that's really weird. I've
sniffed my own boxers to see if I can wear
them again, but sniffing someone else's
underwear is just sketchy.
TMD: If you were stranded on an
island, who would you rather have around:
Your best friend or a buxom babe from
R: The babe.
TMD: Okay, well, I think we're done
here. Check the paper later this week ...
this interview will be in it.
R: For real? All right! Go Blue!
TMD: Indeed. Thanks for your coop-
eration and godspeed.
