News to hand
A panel of expert judges has declared the University of Newcastle (UNCLE) to be the most avuncular in Australia.
The announcement came after a gruelling 18 month testing period which saw the country's top tertiary institutions being put through their paces.
"In the end, we just thought it was the uni that you'd most want to kick a footy around the backyard with. It also had some great yarns and the best range of fart jokes!" said senior researcher, Uncle Bob.
In response, a spokesperson for the University of Sydney suggested no-one behind the Sandstone Curtain really cares.
"Some people are interested in which uni shares the most characteristics with their favourite uncle. Others aren't," she said.
