Q&A with the President:

Question:  Why go to Franklin University of Central Kentucky?
Answer:  I don't give a d@mn. 

Question:  Did you think you would be president of the school for 34 years when you started?
Answer:  I have been president of this university for 37 years, Jack@ss.  Father was a real nut job faking his death and sh!t, all the d@mn time.  Hell, I didn't know if I was coming or going.  I ain't putting my kids through that.  

Question:  A lot of the students have a problem with you being a Republican.
 
Answer:  I believe in what they believe and if you don't like it, then you can get out.  I don't tell them they have to agree.  J@ck@ss!

Question:  You haven't worked at the school fulltime since 1980.  Is that true?
Answer:  I hire people and trust them to run the shop.  No one ever said I was a micromanager.

Question:  They say you just don't care anymore.  Is that true?
Answer: 
Let me pose for a picture.  Then you'll see. 

Question:  What is your position on diseases?
Answer: 
I am against them. 

Question:
 If you could be any kind of insect, what would it be?
Answer:
What kind of question is that J@ck@ss?

Question:  This student newspaper is a N0 SPIN ZONE Dr. President.  Now answer the question?
Answer: 
Stop hitting yourself.

Question:  OUCH!  STOP THAT!
Answer:
Faggot says what.

Question: WHAT!?
Answer:
 I figured.

Question:  I can't believe you did that!  Are you flipping me off?
Answer:
 I did what needed to be done.  Now get back to your questions; I will expel your @ss.

Question: What is your key to success?
Answer:  Really good lawyers. 

Question: 
We hear rumors about you selling the school.  Anything to it?

Answer:  I don't think so.  It makes more money now that it is online than ever before.  Generally, I have kept it open to leverage our tax situation.  I never thought it would make money.

Question: Is one of your middle names really Rumpelstiltskin?
Answer: 
Yes, J@ck@ss.  I done told you that my father was a difficult man with a strange sense of humor.  Maybe he was delusional.  After all he was a Democrat.  Sh!t, I have always wondered that.  I asked him several times and he said that it was between either Rumpelstiltskin or J@ck@ss.  Hell, that satisfied me. 

Question:  Franklin University of Central Kentucky.   What is next?
Answer:
 Well, online means world wide. Online means a lot more money.  Hell, it has been fun, I made a lot of good friends.  Now it is about the money.  I ain't going to lie to you.  Father wanted to train the slow people that couldn't cut it in a real college; I think we still do that.  Sometimes, I feel bad about charging so much, but then I remember that we are the last shot for most of these students.  IF they can't make it here, their dream is over.  We are really the only show in town.  Hell, it isn't like your going to put this interview the website.  It is just for the school paper right?
