A ‘hungover’ student at one of the world’s top universities threw up during a lecture – on boozing.
The first year Oxford University student disrupted an English Language lecture about the origins of various phrases to do with alcohol and drinking.
During the final minutes of the 2pm lecture on etymology and word meaning, lecturer Dr Charlotte Brewer turned the discussion into colloquialisms like ‘lord of lash’, ‘prince of pulls’, ‘banter’ and ‘Jagermeister’ – which led to one poor student vomiting on the floor.
He has since been nicknamed the ‘chundergraduate’.
One English undergraduate, speaking to student newspaper The Tab, said: ‘It was hilarious because the whole room one-by-one became aware of it like a domino effect.
‘She looked horrified and was frantically asking for tissues. I’m not sure if she was hungover or not, but she certainly looked green around the gills.’
The Tuesday afternoon lecture was focusing on the origin of words found in the AgonyLad column of The Oxford Student – an undergraduate-led magazine.
