Edinburgh Nature Notes i
Under the guise of education, Flipside is producing a fortnightly Attenborough-esque guide for the rarer creatures around Edinburgh University. This week’s animal of amusement, the ignoramus freshus, can be identified by its terrified eyes, erratic movement and sudden realisation of impending doom.
The specimen, typically a youthful fresher, having engaged in exuberant mating rituals is tired, and under the belief that his work far exceeds that of all others. Their native habitat at this time of year is encamped in the library, amongst empty red bull cans as a sign of his devotion and paper strewn everywhere.
His semester was spent browsing YouTube and their ‘educational’ videos and gaining refreshment at his various George Street watering-hole. Now he browses the information packed EUSA revision guide and is found seeking solace ‘petting the pooch’, that most useful addition to the University staff (vastly underpaid).
Eventually he gives up and comments on facebook friends’ similar ‘statuses’ with such witty remarks as:
Me too! LOL. 🙂
Ha, wish I started revising earlier! #YOLO
