A young Law student, having failed his Law exam, goes up to his crusty old
professor, who is renowned for his razor-sharp legal mind.
Student: "Sir, do you really understand everything about this subject?"
Professor: Actually, I probably do. Otherwise I wouldn't be a professor, would
Student: "OK. So I'd like to ask you a question. If you can give me the correct
answer, I will accept my marks as it is. If you can't give me the correct
answer, however, you'll have to give me an "A".
Professor: "Hmmmm, alright. So what's the question?"
Student: "What is legal but not logical, logical but not legal, and neither
logical nor legal? "
The professor wracks his famous brain, but just can't crack the answer. Finally
he gives up and changes the student's failing mark into an "A" as agreed, and
the student goes away, very pleased.
The professor continues to wrack his brain over the question all afternoon, but
still can't get the answer.
So finally he calls in a group of his brightest students and tells them he has a
really, really tough question to answer: "What is legal but not logical, logical
but not legal, and neither logical nor legal?"
To the professor's surprise (and embarrassment), all the students immediately
raise their hands.
"All right" says the professor and asks his favorite student to answer
"It's quite easy, sir" says the student "You see, you are 75 years old and
married to a 30 year old woman, which is legal, but not logical. Your wife has a
22 year old lover, which is logical, but not legal. And your wife's lover failed
his exam but you've just given him an "A", which is neither legal, nor logical."=D
