Legal vs. Logical

September 8, 2007

After having failed his exam in “Logic and Law”, a student goes and
confronts his lecturer about it.

Student:           “Sir, do you really understand anything about the

Professor:        “Surely I must. Otherwise I would not be a professor!”

Student:           “Great, well then I would like to ask you a question. If
you can give me the correct answer, I will accept my mark as is and go.
If you however do not know the answer, I want you
give me an “A” for the exam. ”

Professor:        “Okay, it’s a deal. So what is the question?”

Student:           “What is legal, but not logical, logical, but not legal,
and neither logical, nor legal?”

Even after some long and hard consideration, the professor cannot give the
student an answer, and therefore changes his exam mark into an
“A”, as agreed. Afterwards, the professor calls on his best student and
asks him the same question.

He immediately answers:     “Sir, you are 63 years old and married to a 35
year old woman, which is legal, but not logical. Your wife has a 25 year
old lover, which is logical, but not legal. The fact that you have given
your wife’s lover an “A”, although he really should have failed, is neither
legal, nor logical.”
