Random student has potty mouth; FCC censors

The Michigan Daily - Weekend Mai$
A guide to who's where,
what's happening and why Te We e d L s
you need to be there ..Te We e d Ls

By Hussain Rahim
Daily Arts Writer

The Michigan Daily: Hey Laurie,
I know you want to do the student
Random: Um, I'm sure she would,
but let me go get her ...
TMD: Alright, that would help
(Waits with quiet reserve. Laurie
picks up.) Laurie!
R: Who is this?
TMD: This is the Michigan Daily.
You've been chosen for the Random
Student Interview.
R: Ohhh ... I couldn't be happier
TMD: Ohhh, I like that attitude.
R: Oh yeah? You like that attitude.
There's more where that came from.
TMD: Yeah baby ...
R: I bet there's going to be a lot
you like about this interview.
TMD: Ohhh, lets go.
(Excitement fades ...)
Alright, to start off, let's get boring
and then get interesting. Which do you
like better? The NCAA or the NIT ?
R: Dude, I don't even know what
either of those stand for.
TMD: All right. Well then, I guess
that's that. Well, Michigan is in the
NIT if that matters at all.
R: I say the one for Michigan then.
I don't have a fucking clue.
TMD: I think NIT stands for the
Not Interested Tournament. Zing!
R: Not Interested Tournament?
(thinks) Ohhh, look at you using

acronyms. OK.
TMD: You're a smartass; I like
that. So, Condi Rice has been in the
news a lot lately, especially in front
of the camera. I was wondering if you
think she's hot? Or not really?
R: Who?
TMD: You have no idea who that
R: Say that again?
TMD: Condoleezza Rice.
R: Hold on. Tell my roommate.
(Silence. Google searching per-
TMD: She's a black woman on TV
You can't miss her.
R: I don't know who that is. Well, I
prefer naked men to naked women if
that's interesting to you.
TMD: Yes, it definitely helps out.
So then what do you think of the
Naked Mile? Usually a lot of naked
R: I didn't know they still did that,
to be honest.
TMD: This may be the last year
anyone tries.
R: Hell yeah, I'll be there. I can't
run the mile but I'll be naked.
TMD: Tomorrow is April Fools'
Day. Do you have anything wicked
and evil planned out for anyone?
R: Yeah, I'll encourage you to put
this in the Daily. What's your name?
TMD: My name is Daily.
R: Ok, I'm going to pee in a cup
and pour it in front of someone's door

in Markley just for kicks. Isn't that
TMD: Um yeah, its pretty hilari-
R: Exactly. I'm going to do it.
TMD: All right. Anything else
involving bodily functions?
R: Hmm ...
TMD: You know - peeing, vomit-
ing, excretion, ejaculation.
R: A lot of things to do with vom-
iting. If I can get my hand on some
ejaculation, I'll use that too.
TMD: So Easter's coming up. Do
you have any plans?
R: Easter? I won't be in school for
Passover or for Good Friday; I'll tell
you that. I'll just be smoking some
TMD: I think Jesus would appreci-
ate that.
R: Jesus was really down with the
goods from the Earth. I'll tell you
TMD: Did you see his movie?
R: "The Passion of the Christ?" I
saw it last week.

TMD: What'd you think?
R: It was really hard to watch. I
cried; it was really graphic.
TMD: Sounds good. I was think-
ing of making my own religious
R: Oh yeah? What about?
TMD: It's going to be called "The
Passion of Mohammed." I have $500
and a digital video camera. I was
thinking of going for it.Would you
see it?
R: Yeah, but let me tell you some-
thing: I don't think anybody else
would want to.
TMD: Damn, that's rough. Thanks
for telling me, though. And Asians?
What about "The Passion of the Bud-
R: No. Just trying to help. You're
living in America. "Passion of the
Whores" maybe. "Naked Girls Gone
Wild." Watch college girls make out.
Want to hear something else I heard?
TMD: Go for it.
R: A girl in my class was a part of
a sorority and she said


drunk and

TMD: And what's the address of
this house?
R: I don't know what the address
is. You'd be down there, huh?
TMD: I'd probably videotape it. I
don't think I'd want to touch any of
R: You're not down with herpes,
gonorrhea and chlamydia?
TMD: I just got rid of all of those;
I don't really want them again. Ok,
look for this in the paper tomorrow.
R: That's it? We're done?!
TMD: You gave a lot. Do you have
any more?
R: Just make sure you print that I
want to pour urine on someone's
TMD: Urine on the door. Got it.
R: Bye, have a good weekend.
TMD: You too.
