Studied by luminaries such as Toby ‘Beers’ Baker’s illegitimate son, Chris ‘Beers’ Beer, English is widely held to be Oxford’s most demanding course. Tits, fellow 2nd Year English student said ‘In between melanin injections, I spent the whole vacation training my boyfriend to make notes on Piers Plowman for my exam, as well as teaching him to roll over, and she’s just made a mockery out of all my hard work.’

According to sources, Direfail not only read the texts, but actually memorised quotes for her exam. One of her tutors remarked, ‘such behaviour is thoroughly irregular, and most improper’.
A full investigation is set to take place by a panel of indignant people who post on the JCR noticeboard about food and building works.
It would appear that TalaLAfitnesslaly (pictured above, inset left) had managed to fight “with tooth and nail” his way out of the hastilyfashioned sacrificial chamber in the process preventing the Somerville chapter of the international Satanist movement from attaining momentary relevance.

BUTLER ENSURES VARSITY BOAT RACE ‘SERVES’ UP A CLASSIC SCBC’s Jenni Butler made ‘Boat Race’ history by becoming the first ever person to intervene during proceedings by swimming in the Thames. Causing the race (widely considered to be the most important thing ever!!!!) to be halted for 30mins, the recalcitrant rower later justified her actions. “When it came to around Jenni gets the blues: “How do I live without rowing?” March, and I hadn’t received my invitation to take THE FACTS: part in the race, I knew a th th mistake must have been - Between 16 March and 16 April she has posted a total of 17 ‘rowing-related’ status updates (an average of over one every made and that I had to act. other day) “I had expected the coach to pick me up that morning, - Of her 2,000+ facebook photos, it is estimated than in 71% of them she is pictured in lycra but it didn’t...” “I then had to make my way - Zero blades down to the Thames as quickly as I could, arriving mid-way through the race, explaining why I had to intervene in such a manner. “I have no idea why anyone on the boat let me on”.

It is rumoured that the entire Hipster Royal Family has sort sanctuary in ‘Somerville Album Club’, where it is likely that no one other than Chris Beer will bother them.
Princess Daniella Shreir of the Hipster Royal Family commented, ‘Why so soon?
Prince Matthew Robinson remarked, ‘I am so glad that there is a place like the album club around. “Sometimes trend-setters like us need somewhere to be left alone, and why not do so

SOMERVILLE SEX SCANDAL In a shocking twist, a second year student from Somerville College was arrested by the police on charges of soliciting sex from strangers.
Upon questioning, the c h e e k y s l u t mu f f i n proved troublesome, claiming he was only on a shopping trip for fondue ingredients.
Thames Valley officers were on a routine trip to flat 10b Kingston Road on March 17th, when at 10:37 they noticed a young man dressed in ‘arse-less laderhosen’ offering himself to students passing by the Co-Op.
The officers took the naughty bum-bandit to Cowley Police station for further interrogation, but the Somerville arsepirate was shortly released after it emerged that it was only a student hacking for German Society president.
Stephan Roux, German Society president, refuses to comment.

The Bogroll - delighted partner of the Somerville Arse Week has the exclusive preview of the all new Somerville Gallery. This addition to the college contains such significant works as Botticelli’s The Birth of Davies and Sausage Soup by Kartik Warhol. In a recent promotional video for the Arse Week, one porter described the exhibition as a “voyage of discovery regarding art. It is something I cannot wait to open like a Pandora’s box.”

TOM ALLSUP IS ADOPTED! Shocking information disclosed exclusively to the bogroll reveals the true parentage of notorious womb-ferret, Tom Allsup. Tallsup’s real parents, Dominique Strauss Kahn and a truck driver from Aberystwyth, contacted the Bogroll over the Easter Vac saying ‘we thought this, the Somerville Bogroll, was the most appropriate way to contact our long lost son.’ Reactions so far have been mixed in college: “If this is true, and his lineage is false, it calls into question the very divine right by which he rules!” stated a confused Jack Crichton. Meanwhile, Lorna Sutton, truck driver, was thrilled to hear of his parentage, hoping the JCR will now give greater consideration to her demands raised during the strike. His parents inform us that Ballsup is actually a fossil, resurrected after his discovery in a colonial residence in India. Ignorant bystander, Kate Hosker, claims she has had her doubts about Ballsup all along. Ballsoup, currently unaware of this information, has yet to pass comment on these undeniably libellous accusations.
Not for girls? Whether Tom is also a hermaphrodite is yet to be confirmed...
ARSE WEEK Arse week got off to a marvellous start over the Easter Vac. With an inspired nod to Alice Proshaska, the titular hero of classic Oxford tale Alice in Wonderland, Arts week created an installation in tribute to the famous ‘Change Places’ scene. Finalists were required to randomly change room despite being deep in preparation for exams, and in keeping with the obscurity and anarchy of the novel, students were offered no explanation for the events. Thrilled Matthew Gaksman published his correspondence with ‘Mad Hatter’ Carol Reynolds to show how ‘shocked’ he was by the quality of the art, whilst Owen Jones called it ‘a shining example of us being put first’. The interactive nature of the instillation also could hold tangible improvements: college staff, tired of Somerville’s pervasive mediocrity in
finals, relied heavily on a Japanese study that showed hurling enraged badgers wrapped in barbed wire at toddlers increased their activity in class dramatically. We wait with baited breath! Unfortunately Joe De Sousa missed the mark a bit when he suggested they ask for rent for the use of the JCR seeing as a) it was only an Arts installation b) the JCR doesn’t own the site itself you tit. Whilst all students were thrilled by the exhibit, some Oxford groups expressed concerns that it was an inappropriate interpretation of an innocent children’s tale, and that Alice in Wonderland should not be associated with the way that the college whored itself out to random parties.
ATTENTION! In the interests of College security and hygiene, if you see this figure, please issue him this notice (proceeding as you do so with extreme caution):
