Pretend there's a witty buttock-related pun here

From the front page of Tuesday's Dominion Post:


This cheeky protest failed to make an impression on Victoria University chancellor Tim Beaglehole and university council secretary Christine Turner as students took action in the face of fees rising by hundreds of dollars next year.

[...]

Politics and criminology student David Cassidy's naked fury led him to bare his bum in protests at the fee rise.

Okay, I'll bite. What is the deal with the "10% my ass"? Did he have a point.

Even if he didn't, it's pretty funny.

Fee rises were supposed, if I recall rightly, to be capped at 5%. The University is putting at least some course fees up by double that.

(I'm also disappointed at the ongoing assimilation of our language as evidenced by the substitution of "ASS" for "ARSE", but that's neither here nor there.)
