WELCOME BACK CARTER THE HARDEST WORKING FISH IN BLOW-BUSINESS

With a very special guest, The Secret Service

BY DANIEL PIPES Former President

In one of the country’s largest feuds, rivaling only “Picard vs. Kirk,” and “Trump vs. O’Donnell,” Jimmy Carter has beaten back Alan Dershowitz’s attempts to debate the former President at Brandeis. “This is a huge victory” says Carter, celebrating in his home state of Georgia. “I totally showed that Dershbag.” Carter’s new book, Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid has drawn major criticism nationwide for his views on the Arab/Israeli conflict. Some chapters, such as “Chapter 23: The Jewish Douchebag Jesus-killers” and “Chapter 31: Why Arabs

Could Run Hollywood Better, Too” have put the former president on the defense. “Honestly, I have no idea what the big problem is...lol” said Carter, in a rare AIM press-convo with Reuters. “I mean, I was the prez! I know, I know, peeps say I didnt do nething in office, but I mean, look at Harding and Polk. they didn’t do shit. I can put my opinion in a book if I want 2... At least this president can read and write! rofl!!!1” Reuters’ only followup was “I am away from my computer right now.” Reactions to the initial announcent of Carter’s visit varied around campus. Some, such as the Committee to Listen to Old White Dudes, applauded the

Dick Kensington, a by Carter’s determination and are actumember of the Committee of Undergradually surprised to see this particular former president making any decisions at all, con- ates Negotiating Times for Speakers, said, “We were excited by the idea of having sidering he’s like 90.

This Carter dude is downright obscene. You - Former President Jimmy Carter don’t wanna know what I heard about that sicko and peanuts.” the campus as a whole.” Still others, mostly midyears, have no Kensignton, who negotiated the time clue what’s going on, clinging onto their for the event eloborated, “people are all new ID holders while staring blankly and scared of offending some Jimmy whoevdrooling. er-nobody, when we could be having Alan Meanwhile, Alan Dershowitz, who Dershowitz on campus!

People’s “Sexiest Lawyer of least challenge him to a jello-wrestling the Year!” match in a cherry-flavored Linsey Pool, University President Jehuda Reinharz has chickened out of the debate after presdownplayed Kensington’s anger. “Obvisure from Carter.

What were you talking Hendrix, Reinharz simply said “Well about? Hey!

“I totally showed that Dershbag.”

The admissions office has been struggling with this problem for the past four years, and according to the Dean of Admissions, Gil This January, for the fourth year in a row, a new wave of students arrived about Villanueva, “No one has forgotten the infamous “Hoot incident” three years ago, five months after “normal” freshmen mawhen The Hoot’s midyear correspondent triculated at Brandeis.

This year Adams stepped in to ensure that midyears would be more respectful to others. “Stand up if you are a valedictorian,” he told the mid-years, attempting to mirror Cullen’s presentation. “Stand up if you like Twix. Stand up if you are bicurious.” The program seemed to work as students started to realize that the human race is one big family, a family that pretty

Another agreed, “Tonight, I’m going to take the BranVan into Waltham and hug some fat guy.”

I’m the Person of the Year!

LETTER TO THE EDITOR Beckham comes to the U.S. Soccer still gayer than cock pizza Dear Editor,

Slice of Apple Pie BY JOHN Q. PUBIC American

It was late December and I strolled out to the mailbox. There were some bills, a notice about a missing child (she’s not missing, just in the basement), and then I saw it: The Penthouse Winter Nipple Special! After reading the magazine from cover to cover (Penthouse journalism is really top-notch), I noticed another magazine. With a picture of me on the cover. Apparently, the national crapmongerers at Time Magazine have named me the 2006 “Person of the Year.” I guess my hard work as an investigative editorializer and quasi-attractive ladies’ man has finally paid off. And honestly, it’s about fuckin’ time. Get it? Time? Like, Time and... okay. But, seriously, what took you guys so friggin long? ConJohn Q. broke up Britney and K-Fed, gratu-fuckinlations Time killed Gerald Ford, and conceived Magazine on Barack Obama... securing him Time’s the slowest award this year. news break of all time. What are you going for next week? “Christ born?” I mean, if me breaking up Britney and K-Fed, killing Gerald Ford, and conceiving Barack Obama didn’t convince them, then what finally made them come around? I assume the proverbial deal was sealed the other day, when I gave a homeless person a good talking-to. I mean, all that progress, and I’m a humanitarian to boot? In retrospect, I was a shoe-in for this award. Of course, if I had the time, I would formally thank Time for recognizing that I am The Shit. But as they probably know, I’m way too important now to talk to some second-rate magazine. Now that I’ve become even more famous, I spend my days in the mold of a true celebrity: wake up at noon, shower till one, eat lunch, watch cable till the sun goes down. Then I start drinking. To be honest, it’s not much different from my old routine, except that now I’m showering regularly. Except I haven’t really had time to “actually” take those showers; I usually just spend that hour beating off and trying to remember where I put my wallet. But hey, nobody’s perfect. Besides me, of course. I figured Time would send a reporter to come talk to me about the award, but if there’s one thing I gotta

“Time Magazine has finally recognized my hard work as an investigative editorializer and quasi-attractive ladies’ man.” hand it to them on, it’s that they’ve pretty much stayed out of my hair. They realize that I’m way too busy for any of that PR fluff crap. And I am – these baseball cards aren’t going to put themselves in plastic sleeves in chronological order by the team’s geographic region. I mean the freakin’ Pacific Northwest alone took almost an entire hour! I’ve got to stay on top of this shit; it’s what got me to where I am today. Fame ain’t gon’ change me. Seriously though, I am a little worried about what fame could do to me. These days I’m just trying to keep it all from going to my head. It’s a pretty weighty responsibility, being so totally badass all the time and being the most important person of a whole entire year, so I make sure that I still get my requisite 14 hours of sleep every night. National treaures need to be handled carefully. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m about to go take the most important dump of the century.

“He’s coming! He’s coming!” Those were the rough and effeminate shrieks I heard last week from my sister Karen and my gay brother Jimmy after the announcement that David Beckham was coming to America. It’s pretty awesome: the gayest straight guy in the world, the hubby of a Spice Girl, the guy who inspired “Bending it,” Sir David Walter Beckham III has decided to spend his last washed-up years kicking for the Los Angeles Galaxy. Yet, even with all the hullabaloo, I still don’t care about soccer. The short-shorts, the clock that counts up, the whole not-using-your-hands thing… I just don’t get it. There is that whole yellow-card, red-card thing… they’re giving cards to each other now? What is this, some kind of gay European Valentine’s Day? And look at the biggest American soccer stars. Freddy Adu? More like Freddy A-don’t. And Pele? How about springing for a last name, dickweed? He’s like Cher, only gayer and even less relevant. And... well, I don’t know any other soccer players, so there you go, more proof that it sucks. I don’t know anything about it, it sucks. Like “Universal Health Care.” Why does the universe need health-care? And I don’t know why I even saw that movie, Bend it Like Beckham. It totally sucked. I waited the whole movie for the team-shower scene, and nothing! If I wanted to see a girl kick some balls, I’d have told Bjork that she’s ugly. First of all, the Europeans like soccer, and the Europeans like to surrender. People who surrender are pussies, therefore, all soccer fans are pussies. If Socrates taught us anything (and he didn’t) it’s that. It’s called logic. Look it up, it’s before logistics but after loggoreah. Why can’t people just stick with real, American sports, like synchronized swimming, figure skating, and Aussie rules football? But the most disappointing thing is that soccer coulda been cool. That dude head-butting the other dude in the World Cup was sweet; if only the other guy would’ve

responded with a punch to the nads. Also, when that girl, Brandi Chastain, ripped off her shirt after winning the World Cup, I was interested. Very interested. But she never responded to my letters, so I went back to hating soccer. You know, there’s that team, the New York “Red Bulls”, who “The short-shorts, the clock got bought out by the that counts up, the whole energy drink. I hope not-using-your-hands thing... that the L.A. Galaxy I just don’t get it.” become the Los Angeles “Coke Zeros.” Then at least their name will reflect my level of interest in the team. It’s Zero, by the way. Not Coke. Coke is way more interesting than 22 euro-queers kicking around a polka-dotted-bitch-sphere. But, I guess this Beckham dude isn’t so bad. He said in an interview that he’s excited to play football in the future. That’s a good idea. I mean, besides the fact that he’s totally selling out, at least he’s finally come to realize what I’ve been saying all along…that soccer sucks, but it might be better in the future, with jetpacks and laser beams, and renamed “Laserbeam Jet-ball.” Soccer sounds like sucker, and that’s what anyone who watches this crap is. A soccer. Love, Ronaldinho ‘012

The rejected Carter questions

For the longest time, the Blowfish has owned www. carterquestions.com. This week, though, we received tons of questions, for some reason, to our website. Some of the question were totally wack. Check ‘em out:

Mr. Former President: In ten words or less: what did you accomplish during your presidency? Mr. Carter: Do you beleive in life after love? President Carter: Do you have change for a five? No, I need quarters. Coach Carter: Why did you let Timo Cruz back on the team after he walked out on your practice? Mr. President: I have a two part question: One: Are you a thief? Because you stole my heart. Two: Will you go to the box social with me? Sir: Do you have to have secret service around all the time? Like, i mean...even when you’re having sex...? Former President Customer: What flavor shmear would you like with that? JC: Is your refrigerator running? Jim-bo: Do you have any Billy beer left over? El Presidente: Te gustan churros? Me gustan churros.

nient Truth, which he projected on the ice in a dazzling display, rivaling even a Pink Floyd Laser Light Show (yes, really.) The film of a slideshow of the apocalypse was strikingly poignant and proved beyond a doubt that Global Warming is destroying the Earth. The reporters admitted that the presentation was “very convincing” but concluded that “Hey, one more Cadillac Escalade won’t matter either way.”

BLOWJOB OF THE WEEK

“JOBS THAT SUCK” THE EINSTEIN BROS’ BAGEL GIRLS This week we, The Blowfish, are honored to honor some of the newest heroines on our campus: the girls who work at Einstein Brothers Bagels. Sure, the bagel emporium’s name seems to imply that it’s run by a pair of brothers (although it is ambiguous as to whether the portly gentlemen in the logo are from the same mother, or just black), but these girls toil away anyway, ignoring the blatant sexism staring them in the face. It might seem like just another job in dining services, but The Blowfish urges you to remember that these poor mench-ettes have to learn Yiddish just to work at this place. Shmear? That ain’t in the O.E.D. And Lox? What the hell is that? And as if toiling in that chauvinistic bilingual hellhole of a bagel shoppe wasn’t enough, the Bagel Girls have had to deal with allegations of nepotism in their hiring policies. The girls had no comment, but the Einstein manager told The Blowfish that the situation wasn’t so simple. “It’s all relative,” he explained. M.C. Squared could not be reached for comment. But regardless of these trials and tribulations, the bagel girls forge on, lighting the way with bagel toasting technology that puts Usdan’s toaster to shame. These paragons of bagel-making have helped make Brandeis University a better place, and we salute them for you. Except for the one who always lets the fucking cream cheese get all in the center of the bagel, and it ends up like squirting all over! It’s awful! Doesn’t she know there’s a hole in it? It’s a bagel for Christ’s sake, not a cream cheese sandwich.

After banning trans-fats, Waltham bans fat trannies BY CHESTER “BEA” ARTHUR Food Network Hottie

NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s move to have the Big Apple ban trans-fats inspired similar legislation from a smaller, dirtier, more rotted apple: Waltham, MA. This historic move has been lauded by liberals and conservatives alike. The liberals see this as the first step to a healthier America, while conservatives simply enjoy talking about any topic which doesn’t begin with “I”and rhyme with Schmiraq. However, while the New York bill simply forbids the use of transfats in food, the Waltham bill will take the measure to the next level, and along with banning TransFats, the Boston suburb will also ban Fat Trans. The city will soon be cleared of all the overweight transexuals, much like the snakes being cleared out of Ireland, only oddly attractive. According to Waltham’s legislature, Waltham is committed to fighting fat in all of its ambiguous forms. Waltham mini-celebrities seem to appreciate their representatives’ choice in this matter. “Moody Street is a strange enough place as it is,” said Tom of Tom

Can Cook. “At least now I can stop wondering if that fat guy with tits is just obese or actually tryin’ to be the Mother of India.” Other local businesses were asked to comment. Unfortunately, a translator was not availible to help speak with Tara’s Pizza. Members of the Waltham Police Department who have been commissioned to enforce the new legislation have raised many questions. “I don’t think we’ve been properly trained to identify someone as ‘transitioned’ or , and ‘fully fat,’” complained WalPo Lieutenant P. Arty Pooper at an information session. “Like I tell my kids right before they go to bed,” explained Waltham Police Commissioner , “Shoot tranvesties first, calculate the body mass index of their dead corpses later.” Surprising support for the initiative has come from the Metro-West chapter of the Human Rights Campaign. Chip Chardenay, the campaign’s spokesman, had this comment. “They make us look bad. I mean, I don’t jazzercize forty-five minutes a day to have the one positive stereotype about the GLBT community ripped from

my perfectly manicured hands.” In fact, out of all the G,L,B, and T communities in and around Waltham, only one of those letters has come forward to protest the initiative. And they are lesbians. So, that may not even count. Not because they’re lesbians; because they’re women. At the most recent press conference on

the issue, Herb Le Pew, City Councilman and maitre d’ at The Chateaux ended with this declaration, “It is my solemn promise, that by the end of 2007, I will clear The ‘Tham of the overweight androgeny that clogs our streets and our plumbing.” Said one protesting lesbian, “So wait, now we can’t wear clogs?”
