For our intervention, entitled "Fuck Excellence: Constructing a Joyous Pedagogy," at Joyful Ontologies, a workshop by the social theory centre and the warwick performance and politics network at Warwick University, Conor and I presented a diet version of LEP III. The first half was dedicated to Playtime I, during which an exam took place.

Which also meant that we had to keep the surrounding A4 shape when spray painting, which often resulted in the letters b
