Someone Sent a One Word Email To All UCL Students And Then This Happened
UCL had a major glitch in the system last week, and it showed how a one word email can turn into the most hilarious thread in the history of emails.
It all started with this
Basically all 29,000 thousand students received the very important e-mail. UCL provost, Michael Arthur, sent the email to all registered students, although UCL said in a statement that it was someone pretending to be him.

And even the provost was shocked
