CRAZY PROFESSOR

ONE OF THE OLDER ENGINEERING PROFESSORS WAS WELL KNOWN FOR PULLING
SURPRISE TESTS ON HIS CLASSES. ONE DAY A STUDENT DECIDED TO ASK THE
PROFESSOR IF HE WAS GOING TO GIVE A TEST THE NEXT DAY. THE PROFESSOR
RESPONDED BY SAYING THAT THEY WOULD NOT HAVE A TEST TOMORROW UNLESS
HE CAME INTO THE CLASSROOM THROUGH THE HOT AIR DUCT NEAR THE CEILING
ON THE FRONT WALL. EVERYONE CONGRATULATED THE STUDENT ON HIS IDEA AND
WENT HOME FEELING CONFIDENT THAT THEY WOULDN'T HAVE A TEST. THE NEXT
DAY THE STUDENTS WERE ALL IN THEIR SEATS AS THE BELL FOR CLASS RANG.
THE SCREEN COVERING THE AIR DUCT POPPED OPEN, OUT CAME THE PROFESSOR
TO THE AMAZEMENT OF ALL AND HE PROCEEDED TO PASS OUT THEIR TESTS.
