A Post About a Conversation About Posting a Post About Abusing Listserves

You may have seen this post about some email shenanigans that took place recently at some obscure, little-known educational institution down the coast from us. You may have read an article or two on the incident. But did you know that it sparked a vigorous debate amongst the Wesleying staff?

The conversation is below. Please keep in mind that reading this is a complete and total waste of time, unless you have really poignant opinions on duck-sized horses or horse-sized ducks.

Zach: This is pretty much really hilarious and if any of you want to do a short post on it you should. That is all.

BZOD: Whoever takes this should include a link to the original article too (link); maybe mention that the dude spells “queue” wrong in the email apology (que is, in fact, the Spanish word for “that”); and probably get a comment from real live NYU students. They made a party out of it too: link. Also this quote: “Would you rather fight 100 duck sized horses, or 1 horse sized duck?”

Procrastination Destination du Jour: Spring 2012

So. It has come to this.

It’s that time of year, ladies and gentlemen (and all variations therein). We have reached the woefully short four days known as Reading Week. While we’re all excited to get started on our term papers and get going on those final exams (‘sup, Orgo?), we should all take a moment to procrastinate in honor of our own general lethargy.

It is time for Procrastination Destination 2012. I give you, as the first installment, an absolute waste of time: balldroppings.com. Read on for the details, such as they are.
