The story goes that some time in the middle ages a student from Queen's College in Oxford was walking in the grounds when a wild boar came crashing towards him. He ran as far as he could until his back was against the wall. the boars was pounding towards him, death was imminent - untill the student pulled out a copy of Aristotle's philosophy and rammed it into the boar's mouth, killing it instantly. It's head was served in the Queen Hall that night - and every Christmas night up to the present time.
Some say this was a metaphor for what the students wanted to do to their philosophy professors who they thought of as crushing bores!
