I was in Oxford on Friday night and at a burger van and heard a curious phrase.

A drunk guy asked for some chips and said, "Can I have some chips please. St. John's chips" and he repeated that twice.

I would be really interested to find out what this phrase means, if anything at all.

I think it might have been, just outside the city centre right?

Are the chips something to do with the college?

They may have a deal with the burger van for some free/discounted chips. I know Keble get free chips at Husseins.

Everyone gets free chips at Husseins (if you are friendly/go often enough)

One of the kebab vans sells something called a 'Worcester Special'. Essentially cheese, chips, and grease.

There is both 'Teddy Hall spacial' and 'Univ special' at Ahmed's. Standard marketing ploy.

That's why you should all go to Hasasan's. No marketing ploys here.

Actually don't go. I like short queues.
