QUIZZIES

THERE WAS A PROFESSOR AT MICHIGAN STATE UNIVERSITY
NOTORIOUS FOR TESTS WHICH HE CONSIDERED SIMPLE ENOUGH
TO BE CALLED "QUIZZIES." ONE DAY, HE ANNOUNCED HE WOULD
GIVE A QUIZZIE ON THE FOLLOWING DAY WHICH WOULD REQUIRE
NO PREPARATORY STUDY. THE "QUIZZIE" TURNED OUT TO BE
AN HOUR LONG EXAM! ONE FURIOUS GIRL STOMPPED UP TO
THE PROFESSOR'S DESK AND, SLAMMING DOWN THE EXAM, SAID,
"IF THIS IS A QUIZZIE" I'D LIKE TO SEE YOUR TESTIES."

Submitter comment: TOLD AS A TRUE STORY AFTER THE INFORMANT'S FIRST
SEMESTER AT MICHIGAN STATE IN 1960.

Where learned: MICHIGAN ; LIVONIA
