University of Wisconsin-Madison freshman Jason Guggenheim expressed confidence yesterday that his recently purchased poster of comedian John Belushi chugging a bottle of whiskey would send a strong message to fellow residents of Sellery Hall that he is "down to party like a rockstar all night long."
"Room 833 is where the party starts and never ends," said the 18-year-old undeclared major from Whitewater. "The only trick is to communicate that to other like-minded party animals. The poster of John really gets the point across, and puts my roomie and I ahead of the stiff competition in the Southeast dorms."
Guggenheim's roommate, Scott Merrill, from Eden Prairie, MN, was delighted by his roommate's ingenuity, and supplemented the party atmosphere by purchasing a poster that depicts a "periodic table" of alcoholic beverages. "It was a 2-4-1 deal, so I also picked up this hilarious one," said Merrill, brandishing a poster of a man doing a keg-stand with the help of a friend, under the title 'Teamwork.' "Isn't that fucking hysterical? It totally sends the right message about who we are and what our priorities are," he added in a stern tone.
Guggenheim doesn't believe the poster campaign should be restricted to alcohol-related messaging. "Sure, everybody cool loves getting hammered, but some people also really like to smoke weed," he explained. "That's why I got this poster of Bob Marley lighting a spliff -- it's not just about the drugs, it's also very mystical, and indicates that I may have an interesting perspective on life."
UPDATE: The roommates were disappointed to find four other identical John Belushi posters on their floor. "What can I say," said Merrill. "There are some smart motherfuckers here."
