Anthropological study into primitive social bonding rituals to reveal all

A major new study by the Social Issues Research Centre paper is to be revealed this week.

The paper is a result of exhaustive study at 16 locations nationwide using “participant-obser vation methods applied by anthropologists studying tribal societies”, to reveal “the social dynamics and rituals” of the subjects.

Which rite-riddled tribe could the document possibly be referring to? Why, none other than the corporate hospitality guest.

Corporate Bonding at the Races, co-sponsored by the British Horseracing Board and event caterer Letherby & Christopher, is apparently a sequel to the “highly acclaimed” 1997 paper The Racing Tribe.

The Diary wonders if academic skill and detailed analysis is strictly necessary for predicting the kind of social behaviour inspired by a day spent combining the multiple pleasures of booze, gambling and fine fillies.
