By now, the frantic email thread begun by Lucas Bifera, Fordham College at Rose Hill ’13, has quieted down. While the thread mainly contained requests for removal, it also displayed some of the more humorous aspects of the Fordham community.

If you didn’t get a chance (or refuse) to read Fordham’s reactions on the chain, The Observer picked out the very best for you. Enjoy!

After piles of emails requesting to be taken off of the chain, one brave soul tried to reason with the confused students of Fordham. Thank you, sir.
