Our Interview With Generation X

When we heard Generation X were having a press conference, we just knew we had to be there. So, after getting rid of all the other reporters by setting fire to their cars, and locking ourselves in the press room with GenX, we were ready to begin. Here is the entire unedited transcript of the interview:

Everett: Who are you people?
Newt: Wouldnít you like to know?
Soupnazi: (Whispering to Newt) Whatís that supposed to mean?
Newt: To tell you the truth Iím not quite sure.
Monet: Oh no, not again.
Angelo: You know these weirdoes?
Monet: Unfortunately, yes.
Soupnazi: Okay, listen up. Just answer our questions, and nobody gets hurt.
Newt: You donít actually plan to fight these guys do you? They have super powers!
Soupnazi: Letís hope it doesnít come to that. They donít seem too bright, so they probably wonít think of using their powers, but if worse comes to worse I have my secret weapon.
Newt: Excellent.
Everett: Iím scared.
Angelo: Me too amigo, me too.
Soupnazi: All right, letís get started, shall we? Newt, give me the question sheet.
Newt: Here ya go.
Soupnazi: Umm, howÖno who, who didÖÖ..the funky chicken? Who did the funky chicken? That doesnít make a whole lotta sense.
Newt: It was late at night.
Soupnazi: Next question. Am you hoeutryku?
Paige: What?
Soupnazi: (Crumples paper, throws it over her shoulder.) Okay, scrap that. On to plan B.
Newt looks confused
Soupnazi: We did have a plan B, didnít we?
Newt: OOPS, I guess we forgot that part.
Soupnazi: Letís just do what we did with the Monet interview. Namely, make up the stuff as we go. Improvise man. It worked last time.
Monet: Oh no it didnít.
Soupnazi: Hey, did I ask for your opinion? I donít think so missy. So just sit down, shut up, and speak when youíre spoken to.
Newt: Hmm, let me think. OK I got one. Everett, Monet or Jubilee, which one?
Jubilee and Monet: Yeah Ev, which one?!
Everett: UhÖuhÖJuóMonóuhÖcan I have more time?
Jubilee: You were going to say my name werenít you Ev? Of course you were. Why would anyone want to date Miss perfect here?
Monet: I think youíre mistaken Jubilation. He was obviously about to say my name. Why in the world would he want to date an annoying immature fashion brain dead Valley girl?
Jubilee: Okay, thatís it.
She jumps on the table, but is pulled back to her seat by Angeloís skin
Soupnazi: Ooh, now itís gettiní interesting.
Newt: OK, next question. Paige exactly how many brothers and sisters do you have? Paige: Umm, 27. Soupnazi: Holy crap! Do all your brothers look like Sam? If so, are they available?
Newt: Shut up. Paige: I donít really feel comfortable talking about that.
Soupnazi: Why not? Donít you guys all date your cousins out there? You mustíve checked out one of your brothers at one time or another. Sam, Josh, the other ones? You gotta give me something. Work with me people, please.
Newt: Sheís not from Arkansas! Are you?
Paige: Of course not!
Soupnazi: By the by, could you please talk in your accent Paige? I donít know why you donít in the comic. I mean, Sam does and he sounds adorable. Maybe itíll help you with Jono.
Paige: I really donít want to.
Newt: Come on!
Jono: {Yeah luv, why not?}
Soupnazi: Please? Pretty pretty please with cherries on top?
Paige: Fine, Ah will. Happy?
Soupnazi: Very.
Newt: So Jubilee, just out of curiosity. You wouldnít happen to have Kittyís phone number?
Jubilee: No.
Soupnazi: Samís?
Jubilee: No.
Jono: {Do you guys Ďave any real questions?}
Soupnazi: Good question. Wait, weíre supposed to ask the questions here buddy.
Newt: Are you sure you donít have her number?
Jubilee: Whatís in it for me?
Newt: Not here, call me later. (Hands her a card)
Soupnazi: We need some new material. Let me thinkÖwhatís it like having Emma and Sean for teachers?
Angelo: Mr. Cassidyís nice, but Frostís a little icy.
Soupnazi: Ha ha! Frost, icy, get it? The words relate! Itís funny. Itís a word game! Did you get it?
Everett: Stop the madness!
Jubilee: Geez Ev, calm down.
Everett: No I will not calm down J. These people make no sense! They havenít even asked us any actual questions! What kind of an interview is this?
Soupnazi: Hey, I resemble that remark! Besides, we asked some real questions. Need I remind you: teachers, phone numbers, funky chicken. What do you call those?
Monet: Nonsense?
Soupnazi: Exactly.
She sits back with a satisfied look on her face
Paige: All right, thatís it. Ahím not standing for this anymore!
Soupnazi: Of course not, thatís why youíre sitting down. Ba dum ching!
Everett: Letís get out of here.
They stand up and leave
Newt: Well, that went well.
Soupnazi: Yep. Canít wait until our next interview. What say we go set fire to some more reporterís cars?
Newt: Sounds like fun.
Soupnazi: You bet. You bring the matches, Iíll get the flammable substance. And the popcorn. A burning news van is a beautiful thing to see.



Go Back!
