    God I am SICK of these chavs from Oxford offending the Jewsih population. It has GOT to stop.
    I was going to pick you up on the seemingly ironic 'chavs from oxford'

    but after further investigation I'd be inclined to agree

    Look at the Bebo of the 'rugby captain', seems like a prick:

    i heard it was started by a jokes shop who wanted to shift its unsold stock of large plastic noses.

    If this was at any other university, there would not be so much media attention to it. Do they really think Oxford students are anything but?

    no it's true that's why i heard.

    this story has been done to death and everyone adds something to it, but the joke shop supplied the money bags and the hair and the noses

    There was an interesting comparison in the Cherwell - this was front page, then later on in a little section, there was a bit about an Oxford Brookes rugby party, where the boys were dressed in hunting uniforms and brandishing around sex toys, and attacked a car with a mother and her kid in it. They also found small animal carcasses around (). Look which story made the national news. I wish the bloody Guardian would stop being such a tit about Oxford.

    (EDIT: fine, it looks less bad in a report from the Oxford Times)

    To be fair, I think most people would expect an Oxford undergraduate to look like he had slightly more wits about him.

    Furthermore, this story is nowhere as bad as an event organised by the Oxford University Christian Union when I was there: they held a "bring a jew" dinner where members were encouraged to bring along Jewish friends, with the objective of converting said friends to Christianity.

    well he is the captain of the rugby team, so maybe his wits aren't what took him to oxford

    Thank you - because right now I think you're just making it up and you enjoying saying that sort of stuff.

    Well it'd be just as bad as them having a black, muslim, gay etc theme. Its rascist IMO.

    But its the rugby team so what do you expect? You'd find the same at every uni.

    maybe its because ive been to both oxford and cambridge and know how stupid a lot of the students there are. im yet to be shocked. especially since im privy to the things that dont make the press as well.

    Perhaps they were preparing for a practical exam for their degree in Jewish Studies? :p:
