Bog Standard

Spent an encouraging day at the St John’s College commissioning service.

I popped to the loo to be greeted by this sight…

Yes those are greek verb declensions above the urinals.

Impressively academic bogs to say the least.

Obviously I can’t comment on the ladies loos – Hebrew vocab maybe?

    Don’t you conjugate verbs and decline nouns? Or is that Latin?

    If someone were to give them a scrub once in a while they’d be fluent!

    I left St. John’s 2 years ago but the Greek was there then and it actually helps you to take it in. We used to drink a lot of coffee and so visited the loos quite a lot too and it gradually sank in!
