New cult discovered

.

A new cult has appeared on campus, and its effects are so far being felt mainly among the old and the naked. Members of the cult gather at the base of large rocks and big trees and debase themselves before the leaders, generally referred to as “Holy ones” or “Leaders”. They then abuse themselves and shave their heads and chant passages from Euripides’ The Bacchae, specifically the 1927 Oxford translation., A ceremonial “straight man” is present, generally dressed like Dante Alighieri, a Florentine poet of the 14th century, best-known for his inflammatory religious poems, published as the Commedia. He is also the author of several thinly-disguised political and sexual treatises, generally addressed to a woman named “Beatrice.” The effects on campus have been slight so far, but officials are worried. Father Manuel Marguelez, newly-appointed head of Campus Bizarrerie, said “I am very worried, yes. So far there have not been many problems, because, as you know, there are not so many old and naked people on the campus. “But-as time goes by and my people have not the money to buy new clothes, so they will of inevitably become course naked and then they will be prey for this vile cult. I am very worried and the parish priest will not help.” Marguelez was defrocked after refusing to stop using the Latin word for “lizard” in the Mass. His accent has been the object of considerable controversy, with some people claiming it is Costillian and others saying it was Slavic. The cult formally refers to themselves as “Bacchae gen,” and claims to be made up primarily of people who are reincarnated from classic literature. “I wonder what Dinah is doing now?” mused an old woman who identified herself as Alice. “Do cats eat bats? Do bats eat cats? Oh, dear.” She then recited some of the cult’s inflammatory slogans: Tinkle, twinkle little bat How I wonder where you’re at Up above the world so high Like a tea-tray in the sky Slogans like this are being heard more and more frequently. Another member of the cult, Pope Pius XIII, was more willing to talk. Unfortunately, he did so in a language later identified as 14th century Italian. Why all the characters from Dante’s Inferno? That was the question that Misprint put to UW’s specialist in classic literature and psychological doubletalk, Walter “Palindrome” Retlaw. \ “Well, you have to understand where we are. We are in Southern Ontario, a region distinguished by its location. Southern Ontario is not occupied by anything but Southern Ontario. “Further, you must understand the political situation at the time that Dante wrote his Cornmedia. Florence was divided into two political parties, the white and the red Guelphs. Do you begin to understand, do you see? Do you?’

Finally, in desparation, they hired the deprogrammer. Tom had been riding a raft down Laurel Creek when the deprogrammer kidnapped him and took thim to a secret room in the bowels of the M &

C building. There Tom was forced to be alone with a television and videotapes of Charlie’s Angels. He was read selections from comic books. He was given magazines with pictures in them. Today, Tom is a happy, functional illiterate. This year, he graduated. But how many more will be captured? Father Manuel Marguelez doesn’t know. And the cult isn’t telling.

Sominex goes on the warpath inpub “We’re going to cut their bucks off,” announced (roared) Whim Sominex to a large, random collection of students in the Bombshelter, late Tuesday night. The current president of the Federation of Students clearly had had a snootful. Reports indicate he had been partying with a few councillors and members of the executive. It appears he was referring to the proposed committee for the policing of Federation referendae and elections, an attempt to prevent cheating by candidates. Cases of posters being left up during actual voting have been reported well as the recent case of 93 extra “No for OFS” ballots being returned from the mailout vote. Posters advertising candidates, according to Sominex, “Have often been found lying face up in garbage cans, behind open doors and,” he continues, “under things.” Sominex was not entirely clear what “things’ had been lying atop posters, but he was very clear on whose posters had been visible - “the other guys!” Asked if he himself was as assiduous as he should have been regarding posters, he replied (weaving, somewhat), “Sure. We take ‘em and pitch ‘em. In a can. Garbage can. How they land ain’t my problem. Besides, I won.” “If I won, the students didn’t mind seeing me around, right? They must like me. You like me, don’t ‘cha, guys?” he asked the CC Pub goers. Response was undetectable. “Right,” concluded Sominex. Whose bucks does.he want to cut off? “Now, that’s just a finger of - figger of-figure of speech. What I mean is, any candidate who gets caught cheating is gonna get hurt, see? We’ll take him and . ... no, Bobby isn’t with me anymore - he was so good at that . ..” Sominex took a moment to down a brew in remembrance. Bobby Ellioop, Fed vice president, and Sominex split over the OFS issure. Ellioop is an ex-member of the O.P.P. and can be presumed good at ‘taking people and . ..‘. I “We’ll bug hell out of them,” Sominex finally concluded. Sominex, under pressure of beer, finally admitted that the Federation could do “Sweet damn’ all” about offenders, whether they were caught or not. “Without muscle, we’re nothing.”

As an example, he cited the 93 extra anti-OFS ballots in the recent referendum. “We can’t do anything about that, can we? If some smart-ass -1 mean, some civic-minded scrutineer hadn’t noticed the difference in reproduction they’d have gone right in.” It appears no steps are being taken to apprehend the offenders. “How?” Sominex peating. “How?”

Anti-vandalism

move’ is silly

The latest move by the Campus Centre Board in their effort to reduce vandalism is, patently, absurd. To lower the walls in the washrooms is an act which would seem ludicrous to the untrained eye, but which upon closer examination is revealed as stupid. For instance, what will hold up the ceilings? Are they not liable to come down after the walls have been lowered and become a new area for vandals arid graffiti-artists to assault? No, I fear that this solution will not reduce vandalism, it will only gi& the vandals different areas to work with. But what then is the solution? Wdl, I believe that the attached photograph holds the key. You will notice the terrible mess in the washroom shown above. This washroom is in ES 2; it has not been vandalized - it was made vandalized. Yes, that’s right; the walls were destroyed, the dryers ripped off the walls, dirty words scrawled here and there, hither and yon, before astudent

No sirree. Not us. Never. Never, ever, ever. Not even once. We won’t. Those who say otherwise are just full of it. No, we feel that only by examining the underlying reasons for student violence, for student vandalism, for student mandalas, for mantra rays and other deep sea creatures, can we ever truly manage to solve problems. And what is the answer to solving the problem so that we have an answer to the problems and therefore a solution? Research, that’s what.

ever setfoot in it. Do you see the elegant simplicity behind the plan? No more will students harm property, because it is already lowered to its maximum allowable entropy. (To be sure, it could be lowered further and converted to heat, but that would put us out of the frying pan and into the fire.) , But this still does not answe,r the underlying question, and does not really solve the problem. Why do students feel it necessary to destroy things? Is it not true that when they have been deprived of property to destroy, they will go on to harm such other things as livestock, newspapers, papers, government officials and even real people. Now, we may feel that Skip Stephenson can die, but even so, we will not be party to a heinous crime such as murder.

Policy of the Paper The editdr determines the policy of the paper in consultation with the Production Manager and Business Manager. Students can acquire a say in policy by a suitable cash donation to one of the above.

Acceptance of Material Submitted There is no guarantee that anything submitted to the paper will be used, especially if the editor doesn’t like it. The editor likes: com-

mentaries from anti-nukes, anything from the hippie-existentialist club (Integrated Studies), and anything loosely classifiable as news that he can rewrite and put byline to. The Production Manager likes pap, iii great quantities, to put around the ads. Like letters, classifieds, reviews of the U W Drama Group.. .

Response to Letters

Staff Meetings

In order to preserve a free, democratic and safe student newspaper, the paper is to remain editorially independent from governing bodies such as the Administration or the Federation, unless they fork over cash both to the paid staff and the paper itself. Then if Wright likes it, it’s o.k.

Staff meetings represent the governing body of staff, except for the veto held by paid staff members. Extraordinary staff meetings may be held at five minutes notice for extraordinary reasons, such as shooting staff members who don’t toe the correct line.

The right of editorial response to letters should be exercised as often as possible. An attempt will be made to make such responsesas vile and slanderous as possible.

research

by Vern Fieldwokker Research is nothing more than an excuse to employ out of work scientific types who have nothing better do do with their time than sit on their spotty behinds and think of silly things to do. Take for example this little item gleaned out of the Jersey City Whip and Gazette, where scientists were given a grant of four million dollars to discover uses for flattened mice. Albeit a breakthrough in this field might be

useful, but the four million dollars, most of which was used to import elephants, is ridiculous. Take for example a recent research project at the University of Peoria, where a team of

I think we should take scientists outside and show them a thing or two. Knock ‘em about a bit and they’ll come to their senses! Counterpoint: Walter, youdispicable hoser. You have shown the masses that you have no other purpose in life than to put an electro n magnet behind your privates and go out in search of pubescent girls with braces. How can a journalist of even minimal intelligence discredit the backbone of world advancement? You have taken it upon yourself to take away the very purpose of existence of the people who have brought us such badly needed commodities as the K-tel patty’stacker and the little piece of tin-foil to put your Juicy Fruit in after you’ve chewed it all to hell. Where do you, the man personally responsible for giving toothless winos a place in the whorehouses of America, get off telling us that the world’s scientists are nothing but a bunch of Loony Tunes wasting our money that would only be spent on something useless like pollution control anyways? You have obviously not researched your statements and I feel very strongly that important advancements should continue to be made in the field of hemmoroids.

Walter, Walter, Walter; Walter. Like lemmings to the sea, you are drawn to the ridiculous once again. Your mother obviously never told you that she and your father met only briefly at a costume party in the Mid to late Fifties. You have sought to ravenously devour the blatantly obvious truth and suck out an untruth so that you’ll have at least something to write about so that the typesetter can do his thing in hopes of having his wildest sexual fantasy-fulfilled by you from underneath his chair. The crazy glue that is keeping what little brains you have in place must be diluted with Preparation H because something is definately missing. Whatever coined the phrase “A few bricks short of a 1oad”must haye made your acquaintance. Even a year in public school science would have made you aware of the need for scientific breakthroughs. For instance, for months the world has been yearning for a cure for Brenda Vaccaro’s “hhhhhhhhh” between sentences of no interest to anyone other than the naive who think that simply because they have the same curse they can jump out of planes and scuba dive like never before. Scientists like the infamous Dr. Helmut Zitz have contributed so much to mankind that appreciation could not possibly have been shown on mere paper. Who else, upon recognizing a need for information on the rare foot diseases of the Aborigines of Lower Slabbobia, would

Obscure cult feels maligned no live chickens To the editor: I found the facts in your article, “Everybody and His Sister Gets Drunk and Calls for Animals” (October 27) to be mildly inaccurate, to say the least. This kind of impression cannot be allowed tocontmue, and so I take it upon myself to correct the fallacies. First, the party (and not a “disgustingly debauched

orgy”) was held to celebrate the end of the middle of the beginning of the end of the biweekly termination of a raw buffalo hide we keep in our room, and n&t the middle of the end of the beginning of the end of the biweekly beginning of the end of the universe, as stated in your article. The reporter obviously believes in the oscillating universe, as otherwise the end of the universe cannot be considered a Big Bang. Second, the “call for animals to defile” was done in a civilized manner. We used a roast chicken, not a live one. We did indeed call over the telephone. There were very few fish involved, and all the lizards were returned intact. Torn to “shreds, their vital organs smearing the writhing bodies of the women” is a gross exaggeration.

Mr. Ragde’s low key, conservative review, through its innovative style, was nothing less than accurate in its assesment of the latest bomb dropped by the Drama Group.

Dortmunder was referred to Health Services by the Peers counselling centre. Spokesperson Cathy Taylor-Softouch told Misprint that they had been worried about Dortmunder for quite some time. “First it was the saluting. That was a real nuisance. We usually try to indulge a patient . . . we give into his little whims. But after requiring us to jump to our feet and cry “Heil!” whenever he entered or left a room we started to get a little irked.

He’d get very angry.’ Dortmunder, now 21, used to be a cheerful lad, going to his classes assiduously. He seemed to especially like the Biology labs, where he would happily dissect frogs, slugs, and many revolting things they don’t tell other people about, especially reporters.

jktters Video games salvation of world To the editor: I’ve found it! Ultimate entertainment! Video games are -definitely the best entertainment value around for your quarter. Cannabis and magic mushrooms do not compare to the high you get by saving entire colonies in games like Missile Command. Latent murderers can kill entire migrations of birds in Phoenix. Ninety-six pound weaklings can easily outscore even the ugliest linebacker in football games. In short, video games provide easy escapism for even the most pathetic cringing little milksop. Twenty-five cents is all it takes.to go out on a joy ride when dad won’t lend you the car. You have an accident and your car is totalled? No problem, no $250 deductable, no fatalities, no bruised ego, just another quarter out of your pocket and piay again. Do you feel betrayed by the provincial and Federal governments fGr letting the Cross and Lapointe kidnappers off the hook so easily? Take matters into your own hands, play Search and Rescue and blow those F.L.Q. sadists all the way back to Cuba. Government subsidies are in order for these video machine companies; they keep psychopaths off the streets, and train people in the use of highly technological office machines. data banks, and military equipment. The time has come to make video games available to every man, woman and child. The social benefits from these games are enormous: tactical superiority in warfare, reduction of crime, the eliminat,ion of the threat of global starvation and just plain fun are just within our grasp. -Frank Roosevelt won the presidency on the platform of

Letters Policy Letters should be addressed to the editor, so when it arrives no snoopy little volunteer will read it before he gets a chance to tone it do-wn. Letters should be written in pencil as illegibly as possible to facilitate changes to fit our editorial policy, i.e. make us look good; The name and faculty of the writer should be included to aid the hitman if the letter stinks (p.s. - this is a threat.) Letters will inevitably be edited by the paper if we don’t like them. Pseudonyms are encouraged; if we throw the letter away you can never prove we even got the sucker. If it runs, it’ll run with your name on it because the letter will probably serve to make you look like an ass. Letters are a service to the students at the University of Waterloo and the advertisers in the Misprint-students need entertainment, advertisers need pap to go around their ads why do you think they’re always on a left-hand page? Letters will be printed on a first-come-first-served basis unless you’re talking about U W Drama or the Chevrats in which case they are thrown away. The deadline for letters is whenever we go out for a beer Monday afternoon. Views expressed in letters are usually ones the paper approves of but is too modest to say.

Typical

letter

‘1’0 the editor: Confusing introductory statement that is;really, grammatically unsound. Some elaboration that further confuses, and, in fact, appears to have nothing to do with the first statement. A statement of intent, motivation and disgust that supposedly justifies what now appears to bea long, boring letter. Suggestion of an example that is somehow related to the topic at hand, but only superficially so. Poorly-worded explanation of how this supports the author’s case, and a subsequent remark on the propriety of this predicament in the day and age that we live in. Smug comment alluding to the author’s own innocence. Another example that supports the author’s cause, but is somehow even less convincing than the first. A parallel explication that reveals theauthor’s stupidity and his failure to detect the contradictions inherent in his argument. A brief, tersely-worded series of, catch phrases that appears to be a witticism, but unfortunately is incomprehensible. A simple statement that (finally!) clearly reveals that the author is talking through his hat, followed by a thoroughly obscure qualification. Several remarks strung together in one long sentence that tries to bring all the author’s ideas together in a final (desperate) attempt to convince the.reader that this is really worthwhile, suffixed by a blatant condemnation of the (supposedly) guilty. A conclusion consisting of trite observations and mundane cliches, unwittingly calcalculated to resolve that this is, in fact, a long boring letter. A “clever” pun to wind up with. Some Snothead Editor; Note: A concise, tightly written sentence which corrects factual errors in the letter, and cleverly conceals a subtle jab at its author.

Sex as metaphor for everything club complains of columnus interruptus To the editor: I would like -fo complain about the comments made in your Campus Events section about us. Our organization (the Sex as a Metaphor ior history Club) holds true to several basic tenets, primus being that all the “climactic” events in human history can be interpreted from a sexual point of view. For instance, the universe began with the Big Bang, surely symbolic of the intent the world/ universe Spirit has for love, just love for us all. Then, the very evolution of man from the Neanderthal to the Cro-Magnon form obviously, the two original forms interbred, giving a species bang! The N-eolithic revolution was concerned with the development of hybrid grains and animals - theywere bred, and what is breeding but sex! Clearly, almost all the great climaxes of history have been precipitated by sex.-

This metaphore, nay established fact, my brethren and sistren, can be extended into today’s very back yard. Consider the invention of gunpowder - surely a bang if there ever was one. Then, the advancement of war to the point of firearms obviously gang bangs! And Colonel Robert Gatling of course invented the multiple orgasm. Your comments, to the effect that we were nothing more than a bunch of silly, perverse, sexually-oriented, immature individuals were out of order, a rape of our rights. We are not silly. When our Second Coming occurs, you will all be unsatisfied. Manfred Rhetoric, 3rd Yr. Political Science

Revolutionarv

-: J We are presently entrenched in an age which features most if not all of the darker ’ characteristics of human nature, including but not necessarily limited to life, liberty, and the ’ pursuit of happiness. It is no surprise, therefore, that the aesthetics of the time are primarily those of madness. Grass, speed, downs, acid and reasonable facsimilies, homicide, genocide, suicide, strikes, riots, The Moral Majority and an immortal minority coexist in uneasy harmony, somewhat like Science and Fiction. Like Business and Ethics, like PiggyPop and Debby Boone, like you and me. Hello, I’m Crazed. Welcome to my world. In my world nothing burns. Nothing dies or decays orgrows or is born. In my world everything makes sense. Even Narcisstic Hors d’oeuvres. No ot?e even knows how it started. Those who do don’t remember. Those who don’t don’t care. Simply and suddenly it was there, in full bloom. Where? Upstairs. It was all Upstairs. Don’t tell anybody. We don’t want anybody to know. That’s one of the secrets of success. In my world, when Narcissstic Hors d’oeuvres wanted to be successful, they made sure that nobody heard of them. In this matter they had many allies, among them Whim Sominex. Whim’s contribution to the success of NH was enormous, though his role was fittingly limited. He dutifully made sure that if ever a deluded Narcisstic Hors d’oeuvre tried to publicize the group, such publicity would immediately be removed. It was through the diligent and thankless efforts of such as Whim that Narcisstic Hors d’oeuvres remained relatively unknown. Noonecared toask what NH was or did or even stood for, sonoonefoundout. As above, those who knew didn’t remember, those who didn’t couldn’t forget, and virtually nobody cared. Which figured significantly in their success. Everybody wants to classify something, and somebody wants to classify everything, but not everybody can classify everything. Punk, reggae, new wave, power pop, mutant pop, folk-rock, ska, experimental rock, jazz, classical, new music, bar-band rock, high energy rock, pet rock, rock n’ roll, blues rock, blues, rock, avante-garde music, synthetic rock, organic rock, symphonic rock, blue-beat, back beat, heavy metal, light metal, swing, fusion, wooden music, acoustic music, electric music, steam- and gaspowered rock, Rock Against Racism, Rock Against Pop, Pop Against Rock, pop rock, Pop-Roxx . . . distinctions fade fuzzy lines dissolve mistlike shimmering theoretical nothing in shrouds of fog and ignorance . . . But what they don’t tell you (the all-important What You Don’t Say) is that all these kinds of music and more come from the same place. And they also don’t tell you that all this music comes from the very same place that gives us poetry drama, painting and literature. They also don’t tell you that the source from which all these things flow is

located in Northern Iowa. I just thought you might like to know that. Something they do tell you goes something like this: If you can’t dish it out, don’t take it. No, no, I’ve got that all askew. What they say is: if you can’t take it, don’t dish it out. What actually happened in my world was that Narcisstic Hors d’oeuvres tried to present music that nobody could classify, and because. they were so successful at remaining unknown they found that instead of being able to dish it out, they were forced to take it. They took it on the chin, in the ear, and some other places too.

“Spend a week Upstairs with the Clash” became the motto and moral of the day, replacing such threadbare cliches as

J “Howzit goin’?“and “Take off, eh, ya hoser.” All this happened in real time.

And in real time they grew ill and expired. The cause of death was listed as Narcisstic Fibrosis, a sickly-sweet inflammation of h the id. Survivors were rare. No one cared. No one had to. Zoom in tight to a detail of the revealing fabric of time and space: faces for whom nothing is happening in real time, who are no longer in any time at all. Dancers and bystanders for whom an hour lasts just an instant, an instant extends throughout eternity. The well-known constants of human life suddenly vary, helpless victims of the dark magic of music nobody could classify. And all for only three bucks at the door. Parry Domzelluloid

“Those who can? do, write; and those who can’t write, write for Imprint .” - Prabhakar

there’sdefinite t&;? t here.” - Prabhakar almost anyone

Ragde, on he likes. . .

Prabhakar Ragde. The name strikes fear into the hearts of copy editors. The sheer volume of his writing, the feeling, the range (sports to arts - and back again), the difficulty of spelling his name correctly. You have to understand what Prabhakar’s function is, in any of several contexts. Prabhakar is deep, man; he can be plumbed for hours (and _ friends say he often is). Perhaps this, by itself, would be sufficient for anyone else (say, the ghost of Bertrand Russell, who is about as deep as can be, or Groucho Marx), but Prabhakar writes for different purposes than, for instance, myself. Where I am browbeaten into submission by various people who need space filled in their newspaper, Prabhakar revels in it. He enjoys it. He writes really long paragraphs, longer storhis inies, and sometimes dividual sentences are longer than any of the paragraphs or headlines. That’s what he does: he writes long stories that fill space. But besides that, he does sports.

“When lgrow up, I want to be fictional . . .” -

Something I’ve been saying a lot, lately . . .

There are no biographies of Prabhakar Ragde. Hell, there aren’t even any manuals on how to pronounce his name. You just have to wing it, like lip-reading a chicken. I decided that Prabhakar had been born of poor but sincere clones of Fatty Arbuckle and the starlet he molested to death at a Hollywood orgy. He moved to Waterloo and changed his name after reading Cerebus the Aardvark. We know that he drinks Ontario Small Cask Brandy, and he often destroys records that he has obtained (at no cost) from the Imprint. Also, he likes John Otway and he drives an Olds Delta 88 Royale, once described in this manner: The car was notone to driue while sleepy: an Olds Delta 88 Royale with power everything: air-conditioning, cruise control, and AM-FMstereo, it practically drove itself, sqthat one lapsed quickly in to blissful reverie, broken from time to time by a gentle nudge on the wheel to avoid some persistent obstacle. . . Or maybe he only drove it that once. Therein lies part of the secret of his ambiguity: his inability to make background details like this clear. Perhaps they are unimportant; this does not matter. Those of us who have succumbed to the theory presented in the earlier part of this essay (or did you skip straight to here? I often do that while reading his articles, you know: look for an interesting part - we call them “outtakes” - and start reading from there. I find it makes no difference) feel that Prabhakar should be more open, more clear, more like a

graduate of Dianetics in revealing his background, his soul, his shoe size in his articles. Another thing we know about Prabhakar is that he writes letters to the editor which are often the actual reuiew. I mean, the only time I went to review something about which I knew nothing my review got cut. But Prabhakar wrote it as a letter criticizing the review which had neuer existed. I like that in a man. I think he wears English Leather. I like that in a man, too. One of the more obscure (again that word; Prabhakar taught it to me, and it is very useful; not quite as useful as pleonasm or tautology, but it is a nice Iword in a world where niceness is undervalued) theorizes about Prabhakar Ragde is that he is a woman (possibly a whore or an abortionist). I think that this theory is wrong, resembling as it does one of the older, now outmoded, theories about Jack the Ripper.

“From HELL, Mr. Lusk. ” - Part of a note from Jack the Ripper to Chief Inspector Lusk; attached to a package containing a human kidney. . . This, too, is a theory about Prabhakar, generally heard in the context of a play or record or performance he has savaged. From hell, indeed. No, I think we need look no further than this revisionist theories of Dr. Seigfried von Ossman, a little-known turnof-the-century physician and jazz clarinetist whose ideas on slugs and how they learn excited great interest among the cognoscenti of that period.

“Enough of this impressionistic mithering;make a judgement.” - You-know-who on the last section of any of his own articles . . .

“1kver worried about that, you know - ljust wanted it to rhyme, man. . .” -

Von Ossman says that authors are shit. Prabhakar Ragde is fun to read, good to read. But why? Not, certainly for training in how to write. This style is difficult to imitate and sustain unless it comes from the heart or the darker centres of the brain, such as the cerebrum or perhaps the fourteenth hillock of the left neocortex. It has the advantage that once one gets to about this point, one can do anything, knowing that if anyone is reading it, they (he/she/they) will continue. Look! Mv God! It looks like the dog messed on the floor again! Or I could go off and talk about how the past tense of “to shit” is “shat” and why doesn’t anybody parse their obscenities properly anymore? Or I could just try some experimental.

Ragde

Paraphrase of a statement put in Bob Dylan’s mouth by Garry Trudeau. ..

Or not. See? Anything at all. Prabhakar is useful, he fulfills a niche in society (he’s going to hate me for this, but I can’t write five prwrb, people are whistling behind me,-each a different tune and each in a different key!) It took me a long time to start reading those imposing blocks of COPY-

“It doesn’thave to make sense;they think it’s Art.” - Salvadore Dali, discussing Escher . . . If this were one of Prabhakar’s articles, \here is where you would start reading. Just for the bare bones of the article, -he judgement; then you could go on to the rest. But still - I wonder how Fatty Arbuckle reacts to this sort of thing? Johannes McMuffin

r The Canadfan Challenge. 7

e

only do it for the money

Muhammad Ali, Smoking Joe Frazier. . . the list could go on forever. Last week Frazier fought a ten round split decision against an unknown ex-con named “Jumbo” Cummings. In a few weeks Ali will no doubt embarass himself in the Bahamas against Canada’s own Trevor Burbick. , One must sit and think about this for a moment. Why are these one time great fighters trying to prove to the world that they still have what it takes togo the distance in a sport usually reserved for the young, fast and quick healing? Why are they leaving themselves open to insults, -putdowns, and criticism? And the biggest question of all. . . Why the hell are they going about this the hard way? Every Canadian knows that Trevor Burbick is a tough opponent at all times. (You didn’t know that? Oh well, don’t worry about it.) As for Frazier’s opponent Cummings: the guy’s built like a friggin’brick shithouse. Toget into the ring with this bull, you must certainly be a few miles gone to the twilight zone. Comebackers like Ali and Frazier should take a look at what fellow fighter Roberto Duran is attempting. Unless you’ve been dead for the past year, you know that Duran is the fighter that gave up the fight with Sugar Ray Leonard for‘ no apparent reason. Duran, accused of taking the money and running, was a national disgrace in his own country, Panama. As far as the various boxing associations were concerned, Duran was not worthy of fighting again. He publicly announced his intentions to retire, stating his lack of desire as the reason. BUT, as sure as our editor’s car will stall in the busiest intersection in the twin cities, between the hours of four and six p..m., in the worst possible weather being followed by some impatient salesman who’s anxious to get to a potential client’s house to make a sale to collect the commission that is badly needed because his wife went out and blew a wad on a goddam imitation fur coat that looks like it came over on the ark, (possibly the wild Peruvian Yak’s quarters) that she really didn’t want but seeing as how her artsy-fartsy neighbour with grey teeth and a really disgusting ear-wax buildup, bought on it seemed like the thing to do because God knows she doesn’t want to be outdone by her neighbours who p’robably think McEachen is a real nice boy who’s doing a good job when in fact he should be strung up by the family jewels and forced to listen to five hours of Helen Reddy songs, Duran is going to make a comeback! However Duran is planning to take a much easier road back to the world spotlight and big buck earning potential. Rather than fighting big name fighters like Leonard, Hearns, and Ernie Shavers, Duran has opted for slightly easier subjects. Slated, to fight Duran next June in beautiful downtown Burford, isformerfirst mother of the United States, Lilian

Carter. Carter has been training vigorously for the past three days and has this to say about the fight: “How the hell can you get caught between the moon and New York City?” If successful in his scheduled 65 round battle against Carter, Duran will then take seven months to prepare for a fight against the entire Vienna Boys Choir. Also on the list of potential punch-mates are TV star Tattoo, It-v Weinstein, Sister Mary Theresa, and Dr. Douglas Wright. Why do boxers like Duran, Ali and Frazier attempt to return to this cruel bruising sport long after the crowds stop coming to see if some O.H. reject that works in a pet store will come running up to

the centre of the ring in front of everyone, throw her arms around the winner who looks like he French kissed a Japanese Bullit Train, and smells like he moonlights as a manicurist for’a pig farm,‘and says, “Oh Rocky, I love you”? It’s the money! Six Million Bucks is what Duran picked up for his last fight! With cash like that up for grabs, I don’t know why everyone doesn’t try for a piece of the pie. Hell, the government should take the hundreds of thousands of people off welfare and give them a pair of boxing gloves. If nothing else, a few of them will get killed, therefore leaving more money for unemployed recipients to buy beer. Fiesty Bulchwad III
