Subj:     The Evils Of Marijuana (S243)
          From: dogbyte on 9/25/2001

 A certain college professor was notorious for getting off
 the topic of the lecture, and on to his favorite subject:
 the evils of marijuana.

 Off he went one day into his inventory of horrors:  "Used
 regularly, pot can cause psychic disorientation, sterility,
 cancer and castration!"

 "Now wait a minute, Professor," interrupted a student.
 "Castration?!?  That's absurd!"

 "No young man, it's sadly true," replied the Teacher smugly.
 "Just suppose your girlfriend gets the munchies!"

 the opposite of woe?

 "The Aggie replied, "Sir, I believe that would be giddy-up."

Subj:     Visiting Your Old Professor (S498b)
          From: Joke-Of-The-Day-Mail.com on 8/8/2006
 (Also see 'Life Is Like A Cup Of Coffee' above)

 A group of alumni, highly established in their careers, got
 together to visit their old university professor. Conver-
 sation soon turned  into complaints about stress in work
 and life.

 Offering his guests coffee, the professor went to the kitchen
 and returned with a large pot of coffee and an assortment of
 cups - porcelain, plastic, glass, crystal, some  plain
 looking, some expensive, some exquisite - telling them to
 help themselves to the coffee.

 All the students had a cup of coffee in hand, the professor
 said: "If you noticed, all the nice looking expensive cups
 were taken up, leaving behind the plain and cheap ones.
 While it is but normal for you to want only the best for
 yourselves, that is the source of  your problems and stress.
 Be assured that the cup itself, adds no quality to the
 coffee in most cases, just more expensive and in some cases
 even hides what we drink.

 What all of you really wanted was coffee, not the cup, but
 you consciously went for the best cups...and then began
 eyeing each other's cups.

 Now consider this: Life is the coffee, and  the jobs, money
 and position in society are the cups.  They are just tools
 to hold and contain Life, and the type of cup we have does
 not define, nor change the quality of Life we live.  Some-
 times, by concentrating only on the cup, we fail to enjoy
 the coffee God has provided us."

 God brews the coffee, not the cups...enjoy your coffee!

Subj:     Philosophy Professor's One Question Final (S406b)
          From: LABLaughsClean on 10/25/2004

 An eccentric philosophy professor gave a one question final
 exam after a semester dealing with a broad array of topics.
 The class was already seated and ready to go when the
 professor picked up his chair, plopped it on top of his desk
 and wrote on the board:

 "Using everything we have learned this semester, prove that
 this chair does not exist."

 Fingers flew, erasers erased, notebooks were filled in
 furious fashion. Some students wrote over 30 pages in one
 hour attempting to refute the existence of the chair.  One
 member of the class however, was up and finished in less
 than a minute.

 A week later when the grades were posted, the rest of the
 group wondered how he could have gotten an "A" when he had
 barely written anything at all.

 His answer consisted of two words: "What chair?"

Subj:     Philosophy Professor Discusses God (S129b)
          From: PGSP4LIFE on 7/18/99

 A college student was in a philosophy class which had a discussion
 about God's existence. The professor presented the following logic:

 "Has anyone in this class heard God?" Nobody spoke.

 "Has anyone in this class touched God?" Again, nobody spoke.

 "Has anyone in this class seen God?" When nobody spoke for the
 third time, he simply stated, "Then there is no God."

 One student thought for a second, and then asked for permission to
 reply. Curious to hear this bold student's response, the professor
 granted it, and the student stood up and asked the following
 questions of his classmates:

 "Has anyone in this class heard our professor's brain?" Silence.

 "Has anyone in this class touched our professor's brain?" Again, silence.

 "Has anyone in this class seen our professor's brain?"

 When nobody in the class dared to speak, the student concluded,
 "Then, according to our professor's logic, it must be true that
 our professor has no brain!"

Subj:     The Economics Professor And Socialism (S642b)
          From: tom on 4/30/2009

 An economics professor at Texas Tech said he had never
 failed a single student before but had, once, failed an
 entire class.  That class had insisted that socialism
 worked and that no one would be poor and no one would be
 rich, a great equalizer.

 The professor then said ok, we will have an experiment in
 this class on socialism.  All grades would be averaged
 and everyone would receive the same grade so no one would
 fail and no one would receive an A.  After the first test
 the grades were averaged and everyone got a B.  The
 students who studied hard were upset and the students who
 studied little were happy.  But, as the second test
 rolled around, the students who studied little had studied
 even less and the ones who studied hard decided they
 wanted a free ride too; so they studied little..  The
 second test average was a D!  No one was happy.  When the
 3rd test rolled around the average was an F.  The scores
 never increased as bickering, blame, name calling all
 resulted in hard feelings and no one would study for the
 benefit of anyone else.

 All failed, to their great surprise, and the professor
 told them that socialism would also ultimately fail
 because when the reward is great, the effort to succeed
 is great; but when government takes all the reward away;
 no one will try or want to succeed.

 A government big enough to give you everything you want,
 is big enough to take everything you have. Thomas Jefferson

Subj:     Missing The Final Because Of A Funeral (S402)
..........From: DafterLafter on 7/22/2004

 One of my students could not take my college seminar final
 exam because of a funeral. "No problem," I told him. "Make
 it up the following week."

 That week came, and again he couldn't take the test due to
 another funeral.

 "You'll have to take the test early next week," I insisted.
 "I can't keep postponing it."

 "I'll take the test next week if no one dies," he told me.

 By now I was suspicious.  "How can you have so many people
 you know pass away in three weeks?" I asked.

 "I don't know any of these people," he said.  "I'm the only
 gravedigger in town."

Subj:     The Professor And The Classroom Clock (S315)
          From: LABLaughs.com on 1/23/2003

 The rules at a particular university were such that if the
 professor were not present in the classroom by 15 minutes
 past the hour, the class was considered a "walk" and the
 students were free to leave - with no penalties for missing
 a class.

 The rooms were equipped with the type wall clocks that
 "jumped" ahead each minute, in a very noticeable fashion. As
 it were, these clocks were also not of the most
 sophisticated construction. Some enterprising student
 discovered that if one were to hit the clock with chalkboard
 erasers, it would cause the clock to "jump" ahead 1 minute.

 It became almost daily practice for these students to take
 target practice at the clock (as it would have it, this
 particular professor was not the most punctual, and the
 students considered him severely "absent-minded"). A few
 well aimed erasers, and lo, 15 minutes were passed, and
 class dismissed itself.

 Well, when the day for the next exam rolled around, the
 professor strolled into the room, passed out the exams, and
 told them "You have 1 hour to complete".

 The professor then proceeded to collect the erasers from
 around the room, gleefully taking aim at the clock. When he
 had successfully "jumped" the clock forward 1 hour, he
 closed the class and collected the exam papers.

Subj:     Involuntary Muscular Contractions (S853)

 Professor Higgins at the University of Sydney was giving a
 lecture on 'Involuntary Muscle Contraction' to the first
 year medical students.
This was not an exciting subject and the
professor decided to lighten up the mood. 

He pointed to a young woman in the front row
and asked, 'Do you know what your asshole is
doing while you're having an orgasm?'

She replied, 'Probably golfing with his buddies.'

Subj:     Atheist Professor Teaches About God (S519b)
          From: jbcary1 on 1/5/2007

 A United States Marine was attending some college courses
 between assignments.  He had completed missions in Iraq
 and Afghanistan.  One of the courses had a professor who
 was a vowed atheist.

 One day the professor shocked the class when he came in.
 He looked to the ceiling and flatly stated, "God, if you
 are real, then I want you to knock me off this platform.
 I'll give you exactly 15 minutes."

 The lecture room fell silent.  You could hear a pin drop.
 Ten minutes went by and the professor proclaimed, "Here I
 am God.  I'm still waiting."  It got down to the last
 couple of minutes when the Marine got out of his Chair,
 went up to the professor, and cold-cocked him; knocking
 him off  the platform. The professor was out cold.

 The Marine went back to his seat and sat there, silently.
 The other students were shocked and stunned and sat there
 looking on in silence. The professor eventually came to,
 noticeably shaken, looked at the Marine and asked, "What
 the hell is the matter with you?  Why did you do that?"

 The Marine calmly replied, "God was too busy today
 protecting America's soldiers who are protecting your
 right to say stupid [bleep] and act like an [bleep].  So,
 He sent me."

Subj:     Question On The Night School Test (S107, S451)
          From: FrankRoesc on 99-02-08
      and From: RFSlick 9/4/2005

 During my second month of night school, our professor gave
 us a pop quiz.  I was a conscientious student and had
 breezed through the questions, until I read the last one:
 "What is the first name of the woman who cleans the school?"

 Obviously, this was some kind of joke.  I had seen the
 cleaning woman several times.  She was tall, dark-haired
 and in her 50s, but how would I know her name?  I handed
 in my paper, leaving the last question blank.

 Before class ended, one student asked if the last question
 would count toward our quiz grade.  "Absolutely," said the
 professor.  "In your lives, in your careers, you will meet
 many people. All are significant.  They deserve your
 attention and care, even if all you do is smile and say

 I've never forgotten that lesson.  I also learned her name
 was Dorothy.

Subj:     The Professor, A Girl Student, A Studying (S278)
          From: dogbyte on 5/28/2002

 A student comes to a young professor's office hours.  She
 glances down the hall, closes his door, kneels pleadingly.
 "I would do *anything* to pass this exam."  She leans
 closer to him, flips back her hair, gazes meaningfully
 into his eyes.  "I mean..." she whispers, "...I would

 He returns her gaze. "Anything?"


 His voice softens. "*Anything*??"


 His voice turns to a whisper. "Would you...*study*?"

Subj:     Professor At Nightspot
          from: Playboy February 1997

 A professor was taking in the scene at a popular L.A.
 nightspot when a miniskirted Valley Girl sashayed over
 to him and said, "Like, I want you to totally screw my

Subj:     Physics And Math Professors Examine Equation

 Physics professor is walking across campus, runs into Math
 Professor.  Physics professor has been doing an experiment,
 and has worked out an emphirical equation that seems to
 explain his data, and asks the Math professor to look at it.

 A week later, they meet again, and the Math professor says
 the equation is invalid.  By then, the Physics professor
 has used his equation to predict the results of further
 experiments, and he is getting excellent results, so he
 askes the Math professor to look again.

 Another week goes by, and they meet once more.  The Math
 professor tells the Physics professor the equation does
 work, "But only in the trivial case where the numbers are
 real and positive."

Subj:     Professor Santa Claus

 Last night, for some reason I was thinking about Santa Claus
 and I had an incredible realization.  Consider the following:

 o You never actually see Santa, only his "assistants".
 o Santa keeps his job until he decides to retire.
 o Santa doesn't really do the work; he directs a bunch
   of helpers to do all his work for him, but he's the one
   who everybody credits with the work.
 o Santa doesn't work anywhere near a 40 hour week.
 o Santa travels a lot.

 Yup, Santa is obviously a senior faculty member with tenure!

 "And the opposite of depression?"
 "And how about the opposite of woe?"
 "I believe that would be giddy up."

 Professor Dave Allstot, who substituted for Professor
 Ron Rohrer for a lecture in 18-220, Fundamentals of
 Electrical Engineering:
 Well, I feel a bit like Elizabeth Taylor's 7th husband
 on their first night.  I know what to do, but I'm not
 sure I can make it interesting.

 On one occasion a student burst into his office.
 "Professor Stigler, I don't believe I deserve this F
 you've given me."  To which Stigler replied, "I agree,
 but unfortunately it is the lowest grade the University
 will allow me to award."

 Professor: I'm dismissing you ten minutes earlier today.
 Please get out quietly not to wake up the other classes.

 A professor is one who talks in someone else's sleep.

 When professors want your opinion, they'll give it to you.

 A dean is to a faculty as a hydrant is to a dog.
