2B - The Michigan Daily - Weekend Magazine - Thursday, December 5, 2002
Random would like to patronize opium den

The Michigan Daily - Weekend MagaZine -

Saturday

By Neal Pais
Daily Arts Writer
The Michigan Daily: Hello, is
Hugh around?
Random: Speaking.
TMD: Hi, I'm a reporter from the
Daily; you've been selected to par-
ticipate in -this week's Random
Student Interview. Those lovable
guys over at the Michigan Review
decided to run their own version,
but apparently, did not drink their
funny juice that morning. So, we're
back with the real deal. Are you in?
R: Yeah, for sure; that sounds
great.
TMD: Let's go then. What do you
think of people who pull the fire
alarm in dorms late at night, thereby
forcing innocent, sleep-deprived
students to shuffle out into the
freezing cold?
R: That's a pretty dishonorable
thing to do. -
TMD: Damn right it is. People
like that should be cut into little
pieces with blunt knives. -

(To that person, who committed
the aforementioned atrocity last
night - I hate you with a burning
passion. Go walk in front of a bus.)
R: Wow, you're pretty pissed.
TMD: Yup. I'm a chronic insom-
niac. Sympathize.
What do you think of girls who,
while talking on their cellies and
attempting to parallel park, hit the
cars both in front and back of
theirs? You can see that I'm in rant-
ing mode.
R: What sorority were they in?
TMD: Ooh, that's a burn! But
sorta unfair, eh? I have very close
friends in sororities. Anyhoo, speak-
ing of burns, have you experienced
the burn that keeps on burning?
R: What burn would that be?
TMD: The burn ... you know?
No, I guess you don't; nevermind.
Are you proud of your happy
trail?
R: Not really. It ends before it
goes up my belly button.

TMD: Ah. Are you a whore or a
slut?
R: More a slut.
TMD: How often do you pick
your nose?
R: Nightly, when I'm in private.
TMD: Do you think there are
limits in the province of the mind?
R: That's a deep one. No, I sup-
pose not.
TMD: What do you feel is the
least legitimate concentration at this
university?
R: Economics.
TMD: Interesting ... why do you
say that?
R: Because people who major in
it can pick that stuff up on their
own. Plus, they're just learning
about greed.
TMD: Fair enough.
Describe the implications of
cheating on an ethics exam.
R: Aside firm being funnier, I
don't see it as different from cheat-
ing on any other exam.
TMD: Did you observe Buy
Nothing Day after Thanksgiving this
year?
R: Was that last Friday? I guess
not; I bought CDs.
TMD: Why do you think Michigan
is regarded as being populated by glut-
tonous people?
R: Hmm. Maybe it's because they

have nothing to do in the winter but
eat.
TMD: Have you ever presented
your patronage at an opium den?
R: Do they still exist? Where are
they at?
TMD: You sound excited about
that prospect.
Do you wish you were a Merry
Prankster?
R: I already am one.
TMD: Have you ever thrown
spaghetti against a wall?
R: Nope.
TMD: Have you ever whipped
anyone with a wet noodle?
R: I wish. It sounds like fun.
TMD: Indeed. How would you
react if your best friend told you
your mom was a "milf?"
R: I'd be like "whatever."
TMD: I love haikus. Compose
one on the spot. Go.
R: How are they formed again?
TMD: Three lines. Five syllables,
seven, five.
R: OK ...
(Hum-dee-dum-dum. 12.48 min-
utes elapse.)
R: Here goes:
Someone made stinky
I think it's you; get away
You must buy Huggies.

TMD: Somewhat bizarre, but
oddly beautiful. Nice job.
Well, that's all I have for ya.
Thanks a lot, man.
R: Yeah, no problem. That was
pretty cool. So, my words are actu-
ally going to be in the Daily this
week?
TMD: Yes, very much so. Ciao.
