Exam Stress-relief : clowns and pirates

For some Friday Frivolity, check out these vaguely Law-related and quite entertaining stories.
This morning on National Radio, I heard about Iceland's Pirate Party, which was founded four years ago as a party for hackers and activists. After the elections on Saturday, they could be the new government!

Then on a blog I follow (see below) called Law & Humanities Blog, there was a big piece about the rise and rise of creepy clowns. "(Please don't) send in the clowns?".
Apparently some states in America are banning clown costumes for Halloween, which in turn has raised the question of a first amendment breach.
There is also a nice reminder that clowns have always been creepy .... think Punch and Judy, medieval court clowns.....

Good luck everyone. Study hard, study well.
Look after yourselves, and just as importantly, be considerate of your colleagues.

Study spaces are filling up, so PLEASE share the spaces equitably. The 'egg' dividers assist in creating equal sized spaces, if used correctly. Please do not 'hog' more than your fair share!

Do take breaks, get some fresh air, and eat your (delicious) greasy, crunchy or smelly food out of the library.

All the best, your librarian
