Ah, Those Witty, Witty Cambridge People

I knew this place was special the first day I walked into the medical school at Cambridge. Why, you ask? Was it the abundance of people who looked like they were born with the ability to read, write and debate deep meaningful issues? Was it because they could throw around medical terms that sounded as if they'd started learning anatomy at the age of 3? Was it that the average thickness of their glasses was the same as your average manhole cover? Was it because, despite being absolute nerds, the males looked disturbingly like athletes and the females like supermodels?

No. Because, ladies and gentlemen, on the great and majestically designed imposing stone entrance to one of the greatest and oldest medical schools in the world, are etched these immortal words:


Geddit?

These words, according to one Cambridge resident, have "been there forever". I'm sure the university's tried to remove them before, but someone must either be maintaining them, or the paint they used was VERY strong. Or maybe the university proctors have a sense of humour. I'm just relieved that not ALL the medics here are humourless fact-regurgitating machines.

I hear there's also a very professionally-designed manhole cover somewhere in Cambridge as well, whose origins the Cambridge City Council has admitted it knows nothing about. Now if only I had the time to track it down...
