A professor decides to give his first-year biology class a spot quiz.

Turning to a rather prim-looking girl at the front of the class, he asks, "Miss Callahan, what part of the human anatomy may, under certain circumstances, expand up to ten times?"

The girl blushes, and stammers, "Professor, I'd rather not answer that question."

"That's all right, Miss Callahan," replies the prof, "no matter... Can anyone else answer? — Yes, Mr Hawkins, there at the back!"

"Well, Professor, it's the pupil of the eye."

"Quite correct, Mr Hawkins!" replies the instructor. He turns again to Miss Callahan.

"Young lady, two things are apparent from your response: one, you haven't studied for this week's assignment; and two, it seems likely you're going to find marriage tremendously disappointing."
