The story behind this extraordinarily brilliant piece of sarcastic writing from Cambridge Advanced student Martin is as follows:

Once upon a time, in the land of Lexis Noosa, the Cambridge Advanced teachers asked their students to submit their weekly writing portfolio by email via reception.  Our beautiful student support officer, Mya, became increasingly frustrated with emails appearing without any explanation of who was sending, why they were sending the email and what to do with it.

So Martin; being a superior student, composed the email above. 🙂 Brilliant!
