Rennie MacIntosh Early Self Portrait

The Glasgow art school has burnt to the ground again just as the World Cup starts in Russia 2018 and some conspiracy theorists are saying that it can't be a coincidence that the last time it burned down was in 2014 during the Brazilian World Cup.

With absolutely nothing to go on and the building seeming to spontaneously combust every four years, at the start of the World Cup, some are saying that the building simply burns itself to the ground at the thought of losing yet again.

Others believe that the building is a sort of Oracle attempting to predict the outcome along the lines of Paul the Octopus or that Russian cat that is about as interested in the World Cup as the cow the ball was crafted from.

Ever optimistic, Glasgow Council will be staging a massive firework display and bonfire event in 4 years time in Glasgow Town Centre to take advantage of a fast-becoming predictable local event.

It's unlikely that any team from the UK will win the World Cup until The Glasgow School of Art stands again. Or even if it does.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
