Chief Illiniwek on The Daily Show

Daily Show readying segment on Chief IlliniwekA crew from the popular Comedy Central fake-news program was on campus Monday, filming "correspondent" Aasif Mandvi in a bar.

Mandvi, wearing a suit and blue and orange face paint, drank fake shots with a group of students, chanted the Illinois fight song "Oskee Wow Wow" and staggered with the help of students--faking again--onto the sidewalk outside Brothers Bar.

Great! The original item is available "only to registered members of the website." writerfella stopped joining websites willy-nilly when he discovered that it opens the door to more spam than a Hormel truckload. Thus, the story is unavailable for amplificatory reading. In any case, maybe Chief Illiniwek might come to The BatesMotel for a direct interview. But be warned: it's BYOB...
