West Birmingham University College (formerly Smethwick Working Mens' Club)
is to launch a new BA degree in The Bleedin' Obvious.
Reg Grommett, VP Academics spoke to our reporter. "Interest in our BA
in David Beckham Studies dropped off pretty fast once the students
realised they weren't going to get a year in LA, so we needed to fill
"We're playing to our strengths here. You won't get past your second
pint in the Senior Common Room without several senior lecturers
discussing their research. Whether it's Economics, Government Policy or
the Baggies team sheet, we're all experts."
Reg said the course will have an international flavour. "A guy from
that Dutch University that figured out poor people don't tend to buy
Ferraris is a guest lecturer. Apparently he's a Villa fan, but we'll
excuse that if he gets his round in."
Prospective student KayLeee (centre, with the Cranberry Breezer) said;
"Like, me ma's always said I could, like, do with a bit more Common like,
and anyways I'm not workin' down the nail parlour no more since they said
I had to, like, turn up when THEY felt like it, not me, like.
That's oppression that is."
David Beemer-Golfcart of the Central Birmingham Chamber of Commerce was
cautiously optimistic about the new venture. "Education is always a good
thing. God knows, most of 'em haven't the brains they were born with.
Keeps 'em off the streets I guess".
Reg finished the press conference on the unique course with "It's a
wonder no one's though of this before".
