The Common Curly Haired Scoff is a rare beast from the hinterland of the Derwent River area of Tasmania. It prefers to communicate in symbolic logic, but some sensible contact can be made through the use of English or Polish. Its favourite topic of conversation is agency theory of life and eating, e.g. self-interest and transaction costs determine the amount of food consumed from the College kitchen, or the amount spent on entertaining rare visitors to its den. It is also know to subscribe to a rare theory of the Universe known as The Pointy Bits Theory. You will find the Common Scoff an entertaining beast but be prepared to be engaged in obtuse and strange conversation if you show any interest in its existence.
