Way to go. Snowy!
All, Ant new
by Gary Barker
Aggie Rag Staff
In a somewhat less than surprising
move yesterday, Gov. Snowy White
replaced his three oiiginal Texas
A&M regent appointees with neo
punk rocker Adam Ant, boxer
Muhammad Ali and College Station
housewife Myrtle Crabtree.
“I think my new appointments
more accurately l eflect the needs and
desires of Texas A&M,” White said
during a press conference.
“Adam Ant will bring the Universi
ty the ‘World Class’ status it wants,”
White said. “And besides, he’s cute.”
White said the new regent f choices
were not entirely his. B.S. “Ultra”
Brite, chairman of the 'Fexas A&M
Board of Regents, recommended the
names to White and he agreed.
“Ultra was absolutely right,” White
said. “Ali would give the University
the fighting image it needs and Myr

When questioned at today’s meet
ing of the 3'exas A&M Board of Re
gents, Brite said he welcomed the
appointment of Am.
“He purtnear plays the best banjo
west of the Pecos,” Brite said. “The
musical quality at the meetings will be
greatly improved from now on.”
One University official, who asked
that his name not be used so he could
continue to feed his family, said that

album, tenatively titled, “The A’s and

“I understand the two are as close
as two ants in an ant farm,” the official
Ali said at today’s meeting that he
was glad to be appointed.
“Oh, yeah. I’m glad to be a regent,”

Ali said. “I am the greatest and with
my help Texas A&M can be the
greatest. We can be the greatest.”
A System official, who asked to re-

said: “I float like a butterfly, I sting
like a bee. Who on that board is gonna

Ant, who was easy to spot in his
usual pirate costume, said he was “jol
ly glad” to be appointed regent.
“I love all the snappy uniforms
heie,” Ant said. “I hope I didn’t
underdress for the meeting.”
Ant said his first official act as re
gent would be to obtain a saber from
the Corps.
Ant said he had written a new
song, called “AntRegent,” to com
memorate his appointment.
“It goes like this: ‘So unplug those
old fogies and do yourself a favor.

another flavor, AntRegent,” Ant

Pizza deliverer
nabbed by UFO
by Denise Richter
and Gary Barker
Aggie Rag Staff
A dazed pizza delivery boy for
Snake-Eyes Pizza was found yester
day in an pasture near North Zulch
after being shanghaied for a trauma
tic three days by aliens from the
Andromeda galaxy.
Ann Chovie, a spokesperson for
Snake-Eyes, said the delivery boy,
whose name is being withheld pend
ing the arrest of the aliens, was sent to
deliver a pizza to a phone booth north
of campus Thursday.
“We thought it was strange when
he didn’t come back after three days,
but we didn’t think he’d skip to
another galaxy,” Chovie said.
The delivery boy said that when he
reached the phone booth, he found it
empty. But as he returned to his car,
he was flooded with “this really bright
The delivery boy said he passed out
and when he woke up he was inside
the UFO. He described the aliens as
being about 8-foot-3, dark black hair,
about 325 pounds, large ears and
“these really clean white gloves.”
He said they repeatedly demanded
that he guide them to a mushroom
farm where they could get halluci
nogenic mushrooms.
“Evidently they experimented with
mushrooms when they worked
undercover in Southern California,”
the pizza boy said. “They wanted
more and they thought our pizza had
“I’m happy to say our pizzas use
only the finest mushrooms, not those
druggie kind. Those guys were really
wacked-out liberals.”
Police discovered that the delivery
boy was missing when they saw an

insulated pizza carrier falling from
the sky.
“I thought the sky was falling,”
University police officer Chico N. Lit
tle said. “But it wasjust this insulation.
We filed the usual Unidentified-
From-the-Sky Report and got the
license of the saucer.”
Little said they traced the plates to a
small planet near the center of the
Andromeda Galaxy.
Police said they thought chances
were slim that the pizza boy would be
recovered until Saturday when a
Snake-Eyes pizza carton fell through
a barn on a farm just north of Bryan.
Although the box was slightly char
red from re-entry into the atmos
phere, a message scrawled on the box
was still legible.
Written in pizza sauce was the mes
sage: “Help, have been abducted by
mushroom-hungry aliens. Send help.
