Cheap lolz, swashbuckling romance and essay crises

Jenny is a frighteningly bright Philosophy student, Tim is her flirtatious slacker of a flatmate. Come here to follow the life adventures of these two absolutely not stereotypical Cambridge students. You'll learn very little in the process, but I'll get better at watercolour.

The Oxbridge Game

First published in TCS Lent Issue 6, 2010

The Cambridge Game, Continued:

Dear Potential Employer,

I am convinced I would be a precious asset to your shamefully money-making thriving, world-renowned business. In addition to my two months of organised slavery in a bookshop extensive work experience in the marketing, sales and communication sections of a worldwide chain, I have gained at Cambridge the ability to bullshit my way through anything understand, argue and assess various points of view. I will be an attentive, passionate and arrogant motivated employee, and I am very eager to earn a six-figure salary bring my knowledge and experience to your company.

Respectfully yours,

S. Lacker, BA (Hons) (Cantab)


  1. J'avoue, ça me rappelle HIV, on jouait à ça devant!

    Mais personne ne le faisait mieux que les chartistes (qui, je crois, ne jouaient pas...). Je me souviendrai toujours de leur version de L'Internationale et de Claude François en latin.

  2. Question : ils sont dans quel college?

  3. Jenny est à Christ's et Tim à Homerton! mais ça, c'est un petit 'sneak peek' du cartoon du 7 octobre :=)
