'University Challenged 2016/17: Volume Six (15.08.16)'


It’s when you average more than a Tweet per minute whilst watching University Challenge that you realise you should maybe take a step away from your internet-enabled device.

Perhaps it was the lungfuls (sic?) of cool clear Scottish air I took on board when standing at the top of Edinburgh’s Carlton Hill today, during my day off at the Festival that left me trigger-happy with my posts. I couldn’t possibly comment. Whatever the cause, I couldn’t help myself. See below for this week’s 140-character carnage; I apologise to any higher-educated contestants I have offended in the process.

Emmanuel - Cambridge, Vs. Nottingham (15.08.16)

7:31pm: "...and I'm reading..." F**k off.

7:45pm: John Lennon was The Beatles' rhythm guitarist, you gimp.

7:46pm: Smith's smug face just made me vocalise an exclamation of disgust.

7:49pm: I'd like to recreate George Orwell's 1984 boot / face metaphor with Smith.

7:52pm: Smith won't look so smug when he watches this episode back and spots the fluff on his shoulder.

7:53pm: Run your fingers through Hill's hair and revel in the static.
