Professor Hawking reading slowly

There has been controversy on the set of the long running quiz show for brain boxes when Oxford University were stripped of their title as Champions of University Challenge, with the award being given to the runners up, Manchester University.

Investigations were commenced when the students on the Manchester team lodged a complaint about the make up of the Oxford team.

"They looked vaguely familiar," said Stuart Dent, captain of the Manchester quartet. "I asked Jeremy Paxman if he thought so to, and it all kicked off."

It transpired that none of the members of the Oxford team were currently students.

The captain of the team turned out to be Stephen Fry wearing silly glasses and a moustache as a disguise. The renowned braniac Fry had once been a student at Oxford, but is now more widely known for being a know-it-all on the other BBC2 brainy quiz show, QI. He was, apparently, reprising his role as General Melchett from Blackadder goes forth.

Worse than that, he had brought together other Oxford alumni to help him. his team comprised of Richard Dawkins, Stephen Hawkin and John Sessions, two of the most witty and intelligent famous people and John Sessions.

Together they had a total IQ of twelve thousand and four, with Sessions providing the four, they had more degrees between them than a circle, and an average age of fifty.

"I'm surprised we got away with it for so long," laughed Fry. "Ha ha. Can we claim it's for Red Nose Day?"
