Student Poses as Professor, Kicks Off Chemistry Class at University of Rochester With a Prank

Patrick Adelman is a student at the University of Rochester pursuing degrees in mathematics and political science. He’s also, according to his LinkedIn profile, a member of the Chamber Boys, the university’s radio comedy group. And, oh yes, a production intern at the Howard Stern show. That’s probably all the set up you need to see what happened in Dr. Benjamin Hafensteiner’s Chemistry 131 class last week. Enjoy the rest of the weekend.
