Leif Christensen; Sculpture junior sheds light on fun with Trojans, Johnny Cash, intoxicated Germans
WILDCAT: I see you have a Trojan necklace thingy there. What is that all about?
CHRISTENSEN: Oh, this is my Lake Havasu Purple Heart.
WILDCAT: Oh yeah?
CHRISTENSEN: Yeah, you know you're up at the lake, there's Trojan condoms, parties, lots of other crazy stuff.
WILDCAT: Oh, so you're telling me this is not the kind of thing you would find in a Cracker Jack box?
CHRISTENSEN: Oh no, no, no. You have to earn this.
WILDCAT: So how did you earn it?
CHRISTENSEN: Um, I got really drunk, partied with a bunch of friends, and then we meet up with the Trojan crew. T-shirts, free condoms, this necklace, it was great.
WILDCAT: Hey, sounds like my kind of vacation.
CHRISTENSEN: Yeah, you should check it out.
WILDCAT: What kind of music are you into ö The Beatles?
CHRISTENSEN: Yeah, The Beatles.
WILDCAT: Who's your favorite band?
CHRISTENSEN: My favorite band? That's really hard. Like Johnny Cash and Layne Staley from Alice and Chains.
WILDCAT: Like a duet?
CHRISTENSEN: Oh yeah, definitely.
WILDCAT: You could see them together in like a benefit concert?
CHRISTENSEN: Yes, definitely. I could see them getting real rowdy together.
WILDCAT: That could only be good. So how about polka? You like polka?
CHRISTENSEN: I used to live in Germany, so polka was just a part of growing up. There's nothing funnier than seeing 3,000 fat Germans drunk off their ass in lederhosens. Like doing the chicken, OK (making a chicken, arm flapping motion)? Like literally up on the table? It's crazy.
