Woosta Sauce Editor
Greetings to one and all, I’m Oli and I edit the College newspaper, which is called the Woosta Source (g00d chat amirite). It’s essentially a vehicle for people to take the piss out of themselves, their friends and life at Worcester and Oxford generally, so if you back yourself as being quite jokes then please don’t hesitate to send over whatever you can come up with! Also if you hear about some good college gossip then do lob it over to the Peeking Duck so it features in the informative and innovative gossip column. The more stuff I get sent the more often I can publish the Source (hopefully 3-4 times a term) and the less full of my rather risqué drivel it will be. LeT’s GeT sOuRcEy
