A professor is sent to deepest Africa to live with a primitive tribe. He spends years with them, teaching them Reading, Writing, Math, and Science. One day the wife of the tribe’s chief gives birth to a white child.
The members of the tribe are shocked, and the chief pulls the professor aside and says, ”Look here! You’re the only white man we’ve ever seen and this woman gave birth to a white child. It doesn’t take a genius to figure out what happened!”
The professor replied, ”No, Chief. You’re mistaken. What you have here is a natural occurrence... what we in the civilized world call an albino! Look at that field over there. All of the sheep are white except for one black one. Nature does this on occasion.”
The chief was silent for a moment, then said, ”Tell you what. You don’t say anything more about the sheep and I won’t say anything more about the baby.”
The professor of a European history class at a very conservative Baptist college invited a local World War I ”Ace” pilot to lecture to his class about the air war during WWI.
The very weathered-looking old man began his lecture by saying, ”I’ll never forget one beautiful morning in the spring of 1917. I was flying over the French vineyard country enjoying all of God’s natural beauty, when all of a sudden the solitude of the day was broken when a bunch of them German ’fokkers’ emerged from behind a cloud.”
The students began buzzing over the language used by the old man, when the professor interjected, ”There may be some need to further clarify what was just said. A ’Fokker’ is a German airplane from that time period.”
The old flying ace then said, ”Yeah, but these ’fokkers’ were Messerschmitts!”
A professor of chemistry wanted to teach his fifth grade class a lesson about the evils of liquor, so he produced an experiment that involved a glass of water, a glass of whiskey, and two worms.
”Now, class. Observe the worms closely,” said the professor as he put the first worm into the water. The worm in the water writhed about, happy as a worm in water could be.
The second worm, he put into the whiskey. It writhed painfully, and it quickly sank to the bottom, dead as a doornail. ”Now, what lesson can we derive from this experiment?” the professor asked.
Little Johnny, who naturally sits in back, raised his hand and wisely, responded, ”Drink whiskey and you won’t get worms!”
