The Plagiarist And The Comedian

A college student goes on the internet and asks a stranger (Nate Kushner at A Week Of Kindness) to write a paper for her. Unfortunately for (and unbeknownst to) her, he's a comedian with some free time on his hands who doesn't like plagiarists. So, he strings her along and then turns her in. The story that follows is either poetic justice or the makings of a new urban legend.

Make sure you read the comments too. They're split between "good for you - she git what she deserved" and "that was WAAAAY too harsh".

Since I just had to deal with three cheaters on my last exam, you can guess what side I'm on.
