[jules' pics] Camcard

King's Chapel

King's Chapel

Carrying one Camcard gets two people free entry to most of Cambridge's top tourist attractions. In fact it is even worse than this since one typically gets a "Oew du carry on modam" or similar courtesy from the porters as one creeps past the throng of queueing tourists.

Up to 25% off punt hire?

What's the world coming to?

Priviledge, where is thy sting...

Oh, and they save the best for last:

"Reduced rate on Fitzbillies Chelsea Bun subscription"

Wow! What exactly, aside from one of the most twee-sounding things I've ever heard, is a Fitzbillies Chelsea bun subscription?

I prefer mine less sticky than Fitzbillies'.

BTW, "up to 25% off" might well be 0% off.

It's probably 25% off the one with a hole in the bottom, on a wet Tuesday afternoon, in November.

Technically, I s'pose, it could be an infinitely negative amount off, too, meaning you'd have to pay the ferryman lots to use his punts. Oops! You do anyway! :-)

Ah. So they're trying to kill their graduates.

P. Lewis said...

Why, of course. It's a cunning plan to get at those alumni bequests ASAP.
