The man with the most University Challenge name ever was back with a bang last night

And the gags were relentless.

BARTO JOLY DE Lotbiniere is the man acknowledged to have the most stereotypical University Challenge name that’s ever existed.

And given the competition down the years, that is some achievement.

So, he returned for his quarter final last night

And the world was reacquainted with their favourite contestant of all time

It’s still just about fitting on the sign.

The gags were coming thick and fast

People were imaging what it was like to be Barto in real life

The people have been waiting for this moment to come – when Barto returned

Sure his own team mates are probably jealous of his fame

He’s the realest

And, not even taking Barto into account, the poshest moment of all time happened on University Challenge last night

Yes, it’s happened… it’s gone beyond parody

York won in the end, so Barto is coming back.
