  • Mood:

modern professor's joke

Reportedly, this was the basis of a skit at a Yale Law School event ...

The students sit in class, tapping away at their laptops as the boring old law professor mechanically plods through his lecture. Except one. Instead of hunching over a portable computer or a notebook, he's playing solitaire with a deck of cards on his desk. The professor halts his droning. "What are you doing?" he demands. The student shrugs. "My laptop is broken," he says.
