Philosophy Joke

An eccentric philosophy professor gave a one question final exam after a semester dealing with a broad array of topics.

The class was already seated and ready to go when the professor picked up his chair, plopped it on his desk and wrote on the board: "Using everything we have learned this semester, prove that this chair does not exist."

Fingers flew, erasers erased, notebooks were filled in furious fashion. Some students wrote over 30 pages in one hour attempting to refute the existence of the chair. One member of the class however, was up and finished in less than a minute.

Weeks later when the grades were posted, the student who finished in one minute got an A.

The rest of the group wondered how he could have gotten an A when he had barely written anything at all.

This is what he wrote:

"What chair?"

two cows talking:

cow: "mad cow disease could get us"
cow 2: "what cow?! I'm a helicopter."

Hahaha. Reminds me of one from a television show, probably Saved By The Bell, or whatever I used to watch :x

The teacher just finished teaching the kids the rules to writinga good paper: k.i.s.s. or "Keep It Simple, Stupid!" So, when they had to write a paper on what they learned, the person who got an "A" just wrote, "Keep it simple, stupid!"
