I just love Rule 51 of the Oxford Union Society Rules:
Rule 51: Dogs
Any Member introducing or causing to be introduced a dog into the Society’s premises shall be liable to a fine of Â£5 inflicted by the Treasurer. Any animal leading a blind person shall be deemed to be a cat. Any animal entering on Police business shall be deemed to be a wombat.
Why a wombat I do not know, but one of my ambitions in life has just become to take a wombat into the Oxford Union Society…
