A Mississippi professor was at a party and became indignant when asked if college professors were absent-minded. Professors havent got bad memories, he declared. Theyre not absent-minded. Dont you think I know where I am right now, and dont you think tomorrow Ill know where I was last night? Would somebody like to ask me another question? Yes, said another guest. Is it true that professors are absent-minded and have bad memories? Good! said the professor. I knew sooner or later somebody would ask me that question.
