There are several reasons why I love the Communications department, but one particular reason is the terrible jokes I hear from professors. Either the jokes are bad or they are out of this world, but that’s the beauty of the humor. The two professors below will use anonymous names. I will mention in this paper a thread of bad jokes that I heard from this semester!
“People only tell you the good things about how the family is doing, they never say: little Susie is out of rehab or uncle John is off probation.”
“If I could make Neil Postman appear right now, what would be your counterargument? Which would be a cool trick because he’s dead.”
“No one has to pay, everyone did well on the exam, which means, I’m one he** of a teacher.”
“The most common disease on soap operas is Amnesia, ahh I forgot the other one.”
“At one point I wanted Tom Skilling to adopt me.”
“Students say to me that they pay my salary. I say tuition needs to increase because you pay me sh*t.”
“My son bought a ball cap from Abercrombie & Fitch, it had the AF on the front. He said, ‘hey dad check it out it’s tight,’ and I said ‘go buy a bigger one’ because I had no idea what he was talking about.”
This next professor did not have as much commentary, or I didn’t catch a lot of it, but the ones I have are still worth sharing.
“Maslow’s hierarchy of needs says we need to survive on physiological, safety, love/belonging, esteem, and self-actualization but I say we need to survive on wifi and battery.”
“Getting old is not fun because I always make references y’all don’t get.”
“We start today’s lecture with a poem because I am that b*tch.”
I can’t wait to see what kind of jokes my next professor will have for me. All I have to say is they have big shoes to fill.
