Agony Lad: Week 6

I’ve done it! I’ve finally finished finals.  Problem is, after 8 weeks reading about Plato, I can’t remember what a top day on the lash is like.  How does a true lad celebrate the end of an era?  L.A.D. Anyone who’s spent the last few days dressed as a closeted Victorian bondage enthusiast without drowning […]

Agony Lad: Week 3

We’re planning a lads’ tour round Oxford’s Libraries, recreating our summer trip to ‘Libiza’ (lads + Ibiza geddit?)

And he doesn’t […]

Agony Lad: Week 2

What do you think about colleges having these new Alcohol Awareness courses? It’s such a waste of time. After they droned on about drinking responsibly, we were forced to watch a video of someone hoax calling an ambulance. Not relevant. I can see how an unprofessional lad would assume that that session was run by […]
