    It only ran for a very short amount of time at a certain university,
    suffice to say, I have a copy of the poster in my room. It'll be worth
    a lot on eBay one day:)

  5. And here was I thinking it actually was old, and a reference to an
    incident several years ago where a female UoA (or maybe AIT?) student

    It's not a fake and it's not old; it was in Critic (Otago University's
    student magazine) a couple of weeks ago.

    down. One day they'll be Ebay material:)
