A posh lush showoff, is my understanding.
I’m also confused by that TBH. Never seen it as anything but a negative term and surely they haven’t gone away in the meantime. The whole image is just wildly baffling. What is it trying to say.
The whole thing is an embarrassing shitshow, but I read it as them being broadly critical/piss taking of students from both periods, but that clearly they think the ‘now’ students are weaker/more pitiful/more annoying than what went before.
Quant really confuses me too; I think it’s meant to be someone who is really into quantitative methods/data over qualitative? But then why have they got three thick books as a prop?
Maybe it’s something else completely though.
And also, I’ve now spent too much time trying to comprehend something that is immediately identifiable as just shit on every level. Happy Sunday evening everyone!

Imagine going to all that trouble and being too dull-witted to notice if the jaws of that mantrap closed they’d seemingly sit above the head of the pawn.
It’s notably impossible to make chocolate that’s vegan.
Some of these are alright tbf, some are pure HEAVY HANDED SATIRE
I mean it’s not wrong. But the text at the bottom… We do get it
I do like how it said the picture was “deep message” at the deepest part of the picture/message
