York students banter YSJ on Yik Yak

It’s so uni


UoY students save their best chat for anonymous posts on a mobile app. How delightfully predictable.

As some of the more technologically of you advanced may already know, Yik Yak is a relatively new app where anyone can anonymously post comments that are shared in their local area. The mobile answer to the late Late Gossip, as we all fondly remember

The normal posts are as unoriginal as you can probably imagine for a campus university; desperate boys commenting on that “blonde on the sofas in Harry Fairhurst” or the comically exclaiming at the “minefield of duck shit outside D Bar…” Have a wank and walk the other way. Please.

But recently the app has been filled with abuse at our lovely friends from the other side of town in the form of York St John.

Some is original, some of it you will stifle a laugh at, but all of it is just so wonderfully tame. Here are some of the hand-picked highlights from the bumper crop of Yorkie trash talk:

Sticking to the fast food theme, but this banter merchant has gone for a more elevated writing style. Huzzah.

Granted, some of these one-liners do have some comical originality but that York students obviously need an outlet for this petty abuse is probably the most laughable part of this affair.

After a few though, the standard of chat really starts to drop:
