Framingham State College did something unusual in its effort to raise funds from its alumni - instead of a nicely worded letter begging for money, it sent a "blah, blah, blah" letter!
"Today, the fact of the matter is that deserving students need help to finance their education. Blah, blah, blah, blah blah," the letter said.
"I just think it's unprofessional. It's a poor representation of what we stand for. We pride ourselves on our image, and it failed," said Student Government President Steve Whittemore.
So how successful was the letter? About 6,000 students were solicited. Several dozen responded, and $2,000 was collected.

On the other hand...SLAP.
If that was the joke I dont think it was communicated very well.
"BLAH BLAH BLAH F-OFF! BLAH BLAH"
Something tells me that old Framingham State isn't quite at the standards of other New England institutions of higher learning, so you are going to be dealing with third tier students, alumni, and yes employees working on devising fund raising schemes.
