From Melbourne Art & Culture Critic, May 2, 2010:


Pranksters struck at one of Melbourne's train stations again. This time they altered a ticket machine's instructions to dispense university degrees. The alterations used stickers of the same color and typeface, cut to fit over the existing information, it was so subtle that staff at the station didn't notice them until informed by a confused customer. (Thanks to Jane for the photos.)
