Remember this classic from the DiS archives?

What do you reckon OP is doing now? I think he obviously made it - he’s sort of a perfect example of education in Tory Britain. The idea that you can go to uni and come out with a 2:1 in English yet have no discernable talent, flair for prose, or any real politics beyond a willingness to hustle and relentlessly self-promote makes total sense these days. He definitely works in digital media or marketing.

“(you see what I did there)”

“buy it or at least go and see her live, after all she is pretty hot.”
