Learning with Laughter


One from Pablo

Once upon a time, there was a rabbit writing at the entrance of its home. Suddenlya wolf arrives:
- hi, rabbit, what are you doing?
- i'm writing a ph.d. thesis about how rabbits eat wolves.
- ah ah, what are you saying? are you mad?
- no, don't you believe me? come with me inside my house and i'll show you it's true....
So, the two animals go into the house...
Ten minutes later, the rabbit comes out of the house with the skull of the wolf and continues writing...

Half an hour later, a fox arrives and asks the rabbit:
- hi, what are you doing?
- i'm writing a ph.d. thesis about how rabbits eat wolves and foxes.
- ah ah, you're kidding, aren't you?
- Nope.. come inside and you'll see...
and the fox follows the rabbit into the house.
Five minutes later, the rabbit comes out of the house with the skeleton of the fox and continues writing...

And then a big, gorgeous (mark gilbert loves this adjective) bear arrived.
- hi, rabbit, what are you doing?
- i'm writing my ph.d. thesis about rabbits eating wolves, foxes and bears...
- come on, you funny little rabbit!!!
- come into my house and i'll show you it's true!!!
- ok ok!!! -replies the bear.

So the two animals go into the house and, as before, a huge lion killes the bear and eats it.
The rabbit takes the bear's skeleton, goes outside and finishes her thesis.

Remember: What is important for your thesis is not the content, but your supervising professor!!!!! :) :) :)

                            Why can you win more medals if you've got a cold?

                                    Because you've got a racing pulse and a running nose.

On the non-supremacy of lawyers (for you Pablo)

What's the difference between a mosquito and a lawyer?
One is a blood-sucking parasite, the other is an insect.

What's the difference between God and a lawyer?
God doesn't think he's a lawyer.

How can you tell when a lawyer is lying?
His lips are moving.

What do you call a lawyer with an IQ of 50?
Your Honor.

In class, first day of semester:

"If there are any idiots in the room, will they please stand up" said the sarcastic professor.

After a long silence, one freshman rose to his feet.

"Now then young man, why do you consider yourself an idiot?" asked the professor with scorn.

"Well, actually I don't," said the student, "but I hate to see you standing up there all by yourself."
