Overheard in Oxford
One of the many odd things about Oxford is that it has possibly the highest kebab van density by population of any city in the world. While grabbing a quick dinner tonight, I overheard the following snippet of conversation.

Student 1: "Of course the great thing about kebab vans is that they're so accessible."

Student 2: "Yes, they really do bring together people of all social classes."

I couldn't decide whether this would be more or less funny if they were undercover performance artists.

My best overheard moment ever happened when I was standing at the zebra crossing on Jesus Lane. Two blokes on bikes went past just as one of tem said to the other "You really are the archetypal tit man, aren't you?"

They both stopped and looked at me, I cracked up so loudly :)

perhaps not actually believeable if it came from performance artists - that wouldn't get past the suspension of disbelief filter - surely !
