They say that it's all in a name and Tulkinghorn was recently treated to the charming tale of Camilla Squirrel. The delightfully named Squirrel, now a legal recruitment consultant with HaysZMB, is the subject of a rumour. Nothing sordid, mind. No, the rumour has it that when her chosen university received her application they were not sure whether to take it seriously. Why? Because her address was Camilla Squirrel, The Nut House.
