From Wanking to Effigy Burning: A New St. Andrews Uni

<img src="; alt="From Wanking to Effigy Burning: A New St. Andrews Uni” width=”170″ align=”left” />

What on earth is going on up at the University of St. Andrews? The prestigious university, with senior royals among its alumni, has become embroiled in recent weeks in a couple of controversies, so spicy, that the nation’s press just couldn’t turn its back on.

Yesterday, the Conservative Association at the university, was forced to promise to write to the US President to apologise, after an effigy of Barack Obama was burned on the east sands in the town.

The incident happened late on Friday evening, after which a statement from the university was released that referred to it as “naive and crassly insensitive”.

This comes only a week after their main library was forced into erecting a public sign requesting that students stop wanking off in the library toilets, as the exorbitant cleaning costs to remove the “excessive amount of semen stains from the floor” was costing “thousands of pounds to be removed professionally.”

Are they bored? When I went to the University of Paisley (or Paisley Tech as it was known back then), us males on the campus had to make do with the female students with which to while away our time. It’s no secret that part of student life involves drink and drug experimentation, but it was also very important back in those halcyon days, to “get yer hole” as well.

Maybe we were out of touch in Paisley, a charge we were often faced with. And call me old fashioned if you wish, but if I was a student again I wouldn’t waste my time chugging away in a dim library toilet when the campus was overflowing with beautiful and willing female students!

Out Again
No work last night at all due to an impromptu evening with my folks, still in town on their short break. I was originally going to meet them for a coffee, but they were tired after their day walking around the city, so after taking care of some business I met them in the bar of their hotel.

We had a drink and then nipped along to Giuliano’s on The Shore for some dinner. After the hefty meal the night before at The Peacock, nobody was up for a big one, so we cracked open a bottle of Red and tucked into a light bite. I had a lovely plate of Tortellini Ducale: fresh pasta filled with ham and cheese, with a chicken, mushroom, tomato and cheese sauce. Most delicious and went down a treat with a nice house wine.
