I don't like Property jokes *at all*. But that's probably because I hated my Property prof with a purple passion. It's also the only class where I could dream of blaming my sub-par grade on her shortcomings rather than my own.
I hated my Property prof too, and I totally blame my grade on his bad teaching and mind-raping-impossible tests (7 of them). He sucks at life and I have christened him "Professor Poohead" for the rest of time.
But I still like Property jokes.
Ok, and now that I read the end of the thread I will say that my Property professor wasn't as bad as Jolie's. But I'll share my woes anyway. We had 7 tests throughout the semester (WORST f-ing IDEA EVER) and he always canceled class for one reason or another, so we had about half the actual "teaching" time as other Property classes. Yet we were constantly tested. And he didn't actually teach, he just put up poorly written, vague, misspelled slides, told us "Oh they'll be on the website" so no one took notes, and then he usually rambled for a bit and tried to have some class discussion on a completely random topic. Or he blazed through 2 or 3 classes of material in 20 minutes. Oh, and he always reeked of alcohol. I think he's going to get tenure, which is sad, because he is the worst teacher... he actually makes me want to teach Property just so I can explain things better and not make students feel like they're living in Property mind-@#!* land.
I won't even get into the tests, they were awful-- multiple choice questions worth 10-20 points each where there was never an actual clear answer, so missing one just destroyed your score (we had one test with 7 multiple choice questions worth 14 points each and people got 14s and 28s on the test). On our last exam, which was all essays, the average was a 50. My personal theory is that he thought he told us something really really important in an alcohol-induced stupor... and he didn't.
