Heads or Tails #47 -- Joke

Today's Heads or Tails challenge seems simple enough. Our mistress of ceremonies, Barb, says today's topic is "joke."

But nothing is ever easy with lawyers involved, is it? And, besides, here at Second Effort, we take our humor very seriously. Which, unfortunately, is why many of you don't laugh at anything I write.

Except, of course, when I get political. *Sigh*

But I Stumbled across the following joke at this site. I've edited a little. Probably ruining it in the process....

The beautiful student comes to the young professor's office. She had chosen her costume with great care: Short skirt, heels, tight white blouse. She glanced down the hall, making sure she hadn't been observed. She slipped in the office, closed the door and sat down in the office chair across from the startled professor's desk.

She leaned forward. And as she leaned, the young scholar couldn't help but notice that, despite the student's evident care in arranging herself for this interview, she seemed to have missed a button or two on her blouse.

She spoke in a low and seductive voice. "I would do anything to pass this exam," she breathed. She flipped back her lustrous long hair, moistened her lips and stared meaningfully into the professor's eyes.

"I mean," she purred, "I would do...anything."

He stared back at her. "Anything?"

She said it again. "Anything."

He lowered his voice: "Anything??"


He dropped his voice still lower. "Would you...study?"

But studying seems too much like WORK!

Teehee! I never had the courage (self-esteem?) to try something like this. Sadly, I didn't study, either. It's a wonder I made it through. Truly a wonder.

I don't know how you adapted it, but the result works just fine. Great joke.

Happy HoT!

Ah ... the teacher in me definitely saw this coming, but it's a good one all the same ;--)
I've got HoTs on two of my blogs today ... just because, so drop by if time permits. Since it seems you’re a lawyer, you might enjoy the one at Sacred Ruminations more than the ones at Small Reflections.
Hugs and blessings,

Great joke!!! I must admit that I didn't see it coming but then, I'm not a teacher. My HoT is an answer to the age old question of 'What goes Ha Ha Kerplopp?'
