Oxford Students Are Worryingly Subdued As They Stay Fully Clothed For May Day


What happened to the nudity? The dangerous jumping off bridges into shallow waters? The tomfoolery?

May Day on the Oxford University calendar passed by without so much as a Daily Mail headline on Thursday, as students stuck to whetting their whistles with cups of tea over plunging headfirst into the Thames.

In stark contrast to recent years, students appeared to stay sober - and dry - as they boogied with local Morris Men and posed with local Mascots.


We can't say we weren't slightly disappointed; after all, all that hard work does deserve a good old letting down hair session from time to time.
