Anatomy of a protest

We've created this area in the hope of seeing material ranging from some well-told (or well retold) jokes to original writing with a humorous slant, or anything else that might appeal to the kind of person who enjoys playing with words more than people. That probably means someone like yourself. N.B. -- Postings preceded by ** contain some sexual or risqué content. (Makes them easier to find.)

Anatomy of a protest

Post by Erik_Kowal » Sun Aug 14, 2005 5:06 am

Annoyed by the professor of anatomy, who liked to tell risqué anecdotes during class, a group of female students decided that the next time he started to tell one they would all rise and leave the room in protest.

However, the professor got wind of their scheme just before class the following day, and he bided his time. Halfway through the lecture, he began: “They say there is quite a shortage of prostitutes in Paris.”

Exchanging disgusted looks with each other, the girls rose from their seats and started for the door.

“Young ladies,” said the professor, arching his eyebrow in their direction, “the next plane doesn't leave till tomorrow afternoon.”
