Where in Ohio? This wasn't at C-M, was it?
That would NOT go over well in my classes  :)

Good guess.  But, no, actually I go to school in Ohio.

Talking about intentional infliction of emotional distress in class, the prof. posed a hypothetical about a black woman walking into a hair salon and being told they don't "do black hair."

Student A: Well, what if they really don't know how to do black hair?

Student B: Yeah, that's like taking a Volkswagon into a BMW dealership.

Class: Stunned silence
It comes to this: Cleveland Marshall, Lewis & Clark
Waitlisted: Case

First day of class after roll call, professor asks if there are any questions. A very young girl in back of room asks if we could start class a half hour later because she can;t get up that early...Dead silence in the room before we all rolled on the floor laughing...She looked shocked that we were laughing at her....She didn;t make it throught the first semester...   DUH!!!

Legal Writing Professor: "What do you think about that sentence?"

That Guy: "I like it...except for all the words."

a few days later...

Contracts Professor finishes explaining a doctrine

That Guy: "Professor, your analogy is poor..."

We're discussing a case about a car collision that happened in the rain in the dead of night, so few of the witnesses can tell which car swerved first. The guy in class says the "midnight sun" illuminates the highway.

Early in the semester, we had problems in our section with the same two or three people answering nearly every question.  One prof tried to address the problem.


Prof:  Does anyone know what a gunner is?

Gunner: (Nearly jumping out of seat with hand up) Ooh! Ooh!

Everyone else:  Silence.

Prof: (pointing at gunner and rolling eyes) Yes?

Gunner: It's someone who tries to answer all the questions.


I don't think she ever understood the irony.

Our K's gunner jumped out of his seat when the prof asked what "officious" meant.

"Ooh! Marked by excessive eagerness in offering unwanted services or advice to others!"

He didn't get the irony either.

Going over (bad memory) a case where a husband throws a lamp at his wife causing her to catch fire and burn to death.

Classmate: So, I don't get why this is murder.. did she die?

Prof: Yes. She died.

Classmate: Are you sure? I don't remember that...

Oy.
