The following is a KSCO commentary. Here is Kay Zwerling:
This is chuckle time. Because most of us are stressed out with worry about the direction of our beloved Country, let’s take out a few moments to laugh. My son Lou shared this one with me, and it is called “Law dilemma” –
A young law student having failed his law exam goes up to his crusty old professor who was renowned for his razor-sharp legal mind.
Student: Sir, do you really understand everything about this subject?
Professor: Actually I probably do, otherwise I would not be a professor, would I?
Student: OK, so I would like to ask you a question. If you can give me the correct answer, I will accept my mark as it is. If you cannot give me the correct answer, however, you have to give me an A. OK?
The professor agreed, and the student asked him the following question: “What is legal but not logical – logical but not legal – and neither logical nor legal?”
The professor thought about it for some time, and could not answer that question.
So, finally he gives up and changes the student’s failing mark to 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 cannot 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 raised their hands.
“Alright,” said the professor, and asked his favorite student to answer.
“It is quite easy, sir,” says the student, “You see, you are 75-years-old, 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 have just given him an A, which is neither legal nor logical.”
