This has to be a joke: a vending machine, here at Churchill College, with a sign “This machine has been emptied of all monies.”

I mean, ok, the statement might have been true just before I paid for my coke. But what then happened to my 50p? I expected the sign to self-destruct but, given that it didn’t, I can only assume that my coin has been magically teleported away.

[On a side note, the (correct) use of the plural of “money” did sound a bit odd to me.]
