Tales from Birmingham University

I was over at Birmingham University for an extremely dull but necessary meeting yesterday. I happened to notice this sign:

Now, people slag off The Hegemon frequently. Low entry requirements, big classes, not a fashionable metropolitan setting etc. Birmingham attracts a well-heeled, Jack Wills-wearing bourgeois intake. But we've never had to put up notices about students committing vandalism.

Also, have you ever seen a sadder sight than a vending machine empty bar one solitary pack of Lineker's Child-Killing Crisps (from 4.10, though the whole piece is worth watching)?

(Sorry about the picture quality - taken on my broken mobile phone).
