Definition funny of Oxenford:
A place infinitely more preferable than St. Johns College, Cambridge.
"Oh, I'd rather be at Oxford than at Johns"
The finest institution of higher learning in the English-speaking world. Educator of philosophers, Kings, Presidents, and other eminent individuals. Also quite a lovely town, replete with beautiful scenery and impressive architecture. Often derided by a tribe of ill-mannered savages who "study" somewhere in the wilds of East Anglia.
Bloke 1: "I'll have you know, I study at Cambridge." Bloke 2: "Brilliant! I'll mention you to my flatmates up at Oxford, we are looking for a new butler."
Where I live. Best features: The Zodiac: Music Venue/Nightclub Covered Market: Great for quirky items/fresh food Cowley Road where so many fantastic shops sell (shisha)! The comedic Big Issue sellers: "pink tissue, buy your pink tissue here!" Park End: "The easiest place to pull on a saturday night" The falafel hut next to the odeon! YUM! Pheonix picture house: the cinema that doesn't show all the usual crap...and you can watch the films all night! Oxfam vinyl section: what can I say? The people of Oxford have good music taste. That 50s-esque rock group that sometimes play on the high street. Cool old school mics and bouffant hair. No 1. Winter pub: Turf Tavern: best pub and the hardest to find, but we like to keep it that way. Roaring fires in the in the winter to keep ya tootsies warm. No 1. Summer pub: The Hobgoblin: barbecues in the summer - the perfect place to just chill with a drink. AND the NUMBER ONE reason for OXFORD being so cool: Its the hometown of Radiohead and Thom Yorke
Oxford makes me happy. Notice I didn't mention the students?
Beautiful if congested British city, home to Oxford Brookes University and the somewhat older (c.1167) Thames Valley Polytechnic, also known as the University of Oxford. The UoO is the oldest university in the English-speaking world, and its early status as the only one also marks the last time it was at the top of the league tables. Currently placed at no.10 worldwide, it lags behind Cambridge in 2nd and eight others from the nouveau riche colonies. Oxford has supplied the world with many of its leading politicians and lawyers, but despite this fact has somehow escaped global retribution. The sort of person who graduates from this university is perhaps best demonstrated by the fact that Jeffrey Archer had little trouble convincing people he was an Oxford man, although in fairness he was later found to be too conniving a little shit even for Oxfraud. Currently run by a Kiwi, the University of Oxford enters the 21st Century much as it entered the 19th; with the sound of grumbling old men in leather chairs, some beautifully-manicured lawns and the eternal whiff of institutional homosexuality. Oxford is also famous for being a place preferable to St. John's College, Cambridge, a fact which marginally elevates Oxford but does Johns no favours whatsoever.
