“Every single one of the photographs was deemed unsuitable for publication”.
Revealed: Myferns Initiations
The notorious Myferns drinking society held its annual freshers initiation ceremony this weekend. Following a broadly publicised rights dispute with the once-popular Farsity magazine and the little known CTS, The Tab was given exclusive access to this legendary event. Just one elite reporter was permitted to attend. Unsurprisingly, Tom Davenport, the decorated undercover journalist and lauded scoop specialist was sent to cover the ceremony. On his way to ‘Location X,’ rowdy assailants attacked Davenport and stole his trusty reporter’s notepad. He was forced as a result to send his report as a series of Tweets and photographs from his hybrid Blackbiphone.
Unfortunately, as a result of The Tab’s characteristically strict quality censoring, and the ‘obscene’ nature of the images Davenport sent through, every single one of the photographs was deemed unsuitable for publication. The Tweets however give a clear impression of how the evening unfolded:
7.47 pm OK, I’m in position. Noone here yet.
