Summary
Oxford University is famed for the intelligence and innovation of its students. However, not all the undergraduates have devoted their talents to academia; instead they spent their time devising ingenious and hilarious pranks to play on their unsuspecting dons. This entertaining volume recalls some of the greatest stunts and practical jokes in the university's history, including those by Oscar Wilde, Percy Shelley, T.E. Lawrence, Richard Burton, and Roger Bacon. Ranging from the stunt that gave Folly Bridge its name and a nineteenth-century jape that resulted in the expulsion of all the students from University College, to the long-running rivalry between Town and Gown and the exploits of the infamous Bullingdon Club, Oxford Student Pranks will amaze and enthrall in equal measure{u2014}and may well prove a source of inspiration for current students wishing to enliven their undergraduate days
