Nothing but a little inter-college rivalry. A prankster just went on a spree of obtaining domain names to inflict some savage burns on the students of various local universities.
At the risk of ruining the joke by explaining it too much, there is now a slew of university-related URLs that redirect people to another portal. The first of the format appeared last night: http://nusrejects.com, with NUS referring to the National University of Singapore. So in this case, the URL for folks who apparently weren’t good enough to enter NUS would be redirected to… the Nanyang Technological University (NTU) portal. Oof.
Since then, more of the URLs popped up, forwarding folks to other sites. Balance has been restored with NTU rejects being redirected to the NUS portal.
Those who couldn’t make it to the Singapore Management University (SMU) were encouraged to be insurance agents.
Singapore University of Social Sciences (SUSS) rejects were surprisingly redirected to the SUSS site, presumably because there’d be nowhere else to go.
The same thing applied for Singapore Institute of Technology (SIT) rejects.
Those who didn’t make it to the Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD) could seek help and counseling from the Samaritans of Singapore.
For those looking for a joke about where people rejected by the Singapore Institute of Management (SIM), well, does the university even reject anyone?
