So the butcher says to the
call girl "Nevermind the Vienna
sausage, what'd ya do with the
pepperoni stick?" Oh. Excuse
me. I didn't realize the column
had started already. I was just
finishing telling my roommate
a joke. And it's a good thing I
live away from home and have a
roommate - that was hardly the
kind of joke that would be
shown the proper appreciation
by my mother, or for that
matter, my Chia Pet.
Still, there's a lot to consider
when pondering whether to
move out such as: do you have

I 'think it's quite obviouS
after looking at the lists above
that the advantages far outweigh
Joe Albrecht
the disadvantages. So go ahead
and move out on your own, but
before you run off and foolishly
rent the first - decrepit place you
,here, are, three, . rules .- of
1. Before signing the lease,
make sure you read the small
print. This advice works
whether it concerns your lease,
cereal boxes, or FBI subpoenas.
Wouldn't it be a shocker to find
out after you've signed the lease
that you've agreed to give the
landlord a complete body
massage on the 10th of each
2. Make
_sure your landlord
looks,like Harry . Dean Stanton.
Ours does. And he's fairly
efficient. Every time we have a
problem he's right over to fix it.
Although, I . suppose any
famous actor would suffice.
3. Don't listen to Geraldo
Rivera. This doesn't necessarily
have. anything to do with
renting a dwelling, it's just
good, all-around sound advice
because you and I both know he
is quite simply a weenie.
Some of you out there might
still be wondering whether or
not you should have a
roommate. Although having
one cuts costs considerably there
is a good chance that if the two
of you are close friends when
you move in, each of you will
hate the other with an•undying
passion by the second week.
Following the same logic, the
converse must also be true - if
everyone roomed with someone
he hated, they would end up best
of friends. Just think how much
more harmonious and loving the
world would be if George Bush
and. Mikhail Gorbachev, bunked
together. - • ••-;. • '
By now . you should - all have
decided which state of living is
best for you. If you should have
any questions please do not
hesitate to call, althotgh you
may have to let it ring a number
of times while I finish telling
my roommate some more jokes.
