Alumni tat

The Poorhouse really doesn't feel like he owes his ex-university anything in respect of academic life and does his best to repeatedly pollute the "alumni surveys" with his life-failures. Nonetheless it doesn't seem to stop the most tedious of glossy "Your university" magazines popping through the door on a regular basis. Really, what are the chances that one would be interested in the lives of any random person that ever attended the same university as yourself that you weren't already at least facebook friends with?

However, it's real purpose is clearly soliciting massive donations and selling rubbish. Best product in the latest issue? Undoubtedly the "University Ruler". It looks ugly, unpractical and unwieldly...and costs £41.00 + p&p. Forty one pounds? You could buy two ornaments of elephant molestation for that!. Anyone interested? If anyone genuinely is then they should be stripped of their degree for idiocy before being allowed to be ripped off in such a fashion. Only good bit is the web link for buying it that they gave in the magazine doesn't work. Phew.
