...Fruity Thursday! The day when attractive female students receive their exam results.

 

Students who are ugly or male (or both) are awarded theirs in a separate ceremony in a darkened cellar, some time next week.

Pretty sure this wasn't an annual event in the past. Who cares?

No I don't care if you're if you're into different bands

Pull off that cover, I will too, and learn to understand

In fact they all do it. You can a just imagine the hordes of sweaty handed middle age photo editors pouring over the photos today. Their best day of the years.

The main reason the highbrow papers like it is because they'll sell shedloads of extra papers with multi-page education sections to parents and sixthformers checking out all their options.

They probably use the young fit girls to prevent the kind of abuse I saw on Twitter because one of the girls in a picture was quite bonny.  Sad sad people out there behind their keyboards.
