We're a compassionate lot, and wouldn't dream of using derogatory nicknames to refer to those less fortunate than ourselves.

On an individual basis, "God", or something along those lines. "Jesus" and "Oh wise and merciful one" are also acceptable.


At least I should hope so. Dirty tabs!

Seeing as neither of us are actually there, I think you should refrain from using the term "we".

If Cantab -> Tab, then I guess Oxon -> On.

I fail to see how either word is offensive, but whatever.

You lot don't even qualify to have a "dirty" name from the "dirty tabs". You lot aren't even in the same league. So, BUGGER OFF!

Good point, we're too busy taunting your superiors, Imperial, LSE and Hull.

They are way behind Hull, how can they be second best? More like the two thousand five hundred and thirty-ninth.

To go slightly off-topic, why is 'tab' supposed to be insulting?

Hey I love your avatar!!!!

I call Oxford just Oxford people but if I ever manage to convince anyone to go Cambridge instead I say they're "converted" Lol! Well my friend's in love with Oxford so I can't hate Oxford - plus they do Fine Art! That'll always be one of Cambridge's down side for me personally

However you Oxford lot insulting Cambridge just shows how you're jealous of Cambridge! And why should you be jealous if there wasn't good reasons for it? :rolleyes: Hehe :aetsch:

Just kidding. Cambridge is my personal favourite, but I'm sure Oxford is cool too
