Meanwhile at the Australian National University

Big thanks to Dr_na for taking this one from Union Court.

You really think they’d be careful about dropping that apostrophe by now.

Customers certainly be glad of the chips and salad!

The apostrophe might be missing, but I think they’re well on their way to a colon.

I’m surprised that no-one seems to have mentioned that the old ANUS joke has been around for decades. Anyone watching, say, an ANU hockey team would hear frequent cries of “come on ANUS”, “force it through there ANUS”. ANUS, stands for ANU Students or any other handy S word.

Branding it an ANUS burger is playing to the in joke, not an error.

I think it’s accidental – no food outlet would deliberately put “anus” in its customers’ minds when they are about to buy food from it!

#19 and 20. Surely it’s just the US spelling of Ploughman? So it’s not wrong, or allusive, just seppo.

… and thus, wrong 😉

dang students these days: misspelt, no apostophe – it’s ‘ploughman ‘ s, fer chrissake… [and they never ate schnitzel rolls…]

Plowman’s is the name of the bakery. Not referring to actual ploughmen.

No ‘apostophe’ is what caught my eye. Interestingly in the context, astrojax is dropping his ‘r’s.

No wonder a few people on this site call it The University of East Bumcrack.

ANU Union is run by students, employs students, is owned by students.

The ANU Union, as an organisation, is a student body. However, the shops in the Union building arent anything to do with the students, they are commercial lessees.. There is a Subway (sandwich shop), for example, and I’m pretty sure not owned or run by the students. It may employ some of course.

The Subway is student owned too, the Union owns the franchise.

The full list (http://www.anuunion.com.au/index.php?option=com_content&view=section&layout=blog&id=7&Itemid=2), identifies businesses as either “Union service” or “Tenant Service”

Asian Bistro, Degree, Zambrerro and the Bakery are tenants, all the others are Union owned.

Frankly they should shut them all down and rationalise it into another franchise and an original eatery rather than running a bunch of half arsed efforts.

So tempted to whip out an innuendo but i couldn’t be arsed.

Holden Caulfield 10:42 pm 06 Nov 12

What a bunch of arse!

I hope someone gets to the bottom of this.

Before the sh*t hits the ….er ….pan.
