How to get into Cambridge University
You just gotta have the stones
A student who'd applied to study English at Cambridge was scheduled to be interviewed by your typical irasicble Cambridge don. After a bit of waiting, he sees the girl before him in the queue come out of his office run off crying. Shrugging his shoulders, he walks into the office and sits down. The professor doesn't say anything for a while, as he's hidden behind a copy of the Times, presumably reading it. He lowers the newspaper for one second and intones, "Impress me." He then raises the newspaper and continues reading.
The student promptly takes out a lighter from his pocket and then sets fire to the newspaper.
Now, I can't remember whether there was a happy ending to the story but all the same, it's a bit of light relief.
