Library Cake Sale Sells Cake
A cake sale run by the Literature Society to raise funds for the semester two edition of their ’s ‘Dogs in Postmodern Lebanese Fiction’ zine astounded students outside the library today by actually selling a cake.
The event, which is set to be featured on the cover of this week’s copy of The Student, was particularly impressive since the purchaser of said cake is not actually thought to be a member of the Literature Society, or even a close friend or flatmate of one of the committee.
Members of rival library cake sales expressed bemusement at the purchase.
“I can’t believe it” said Belinda Donut, Co-Editor of the Geography Society’s ‘Capital Cities of the World’ journal. “We’ve been holding a cake sale outside the library since semester one in 2011, and nobody has ever bought anything. Someone once came over to have a closer look once, but then they went over to Sainsburies and bought the cake we had on offer for half the price.”
At the time of going to print, the Literature Society were reportedly discussing whether they would use the money they raised to pay back the parents who usually fund the zine, or put it into their society bank account.
