The College Professor


A dottering, old professor of logic asked his College class
a question.”If Philadelphia is 100 miles from New York and Chicago is
1000 miles from Philadelphia and Los Angeles is 2000 miles
from Chicago, and the Moon is 239,000 miles from Earth, how
old am I?”

A student in the back of the class raised his hand and when
called upon said, “Professor, you’re 70.”

The old professor said, “You’re absolutely correct, but tell
me, how did you arrive at the answer so quickly?”

The student said, “It’s easy, I have a brother, he’s 35, and
he’s half nuts.”
