Daily Joke: An Odd College Professor Asks His Students to Guess His Age

A weird college math professor gave an odd puzzle to his class, only to be embarrassed by a witty student.  

One day, he asked his class: "If Philadelphia is 100 miles from New York and Chicago is 1060 miles from Philadelphia and Los Angles is 2177 miles from Chicago... how old am I?"

A student in the back of the class immediately raised his hand. After being acknowledged by the professor, the student answered, “Professor you're 44."

Amazed, the professor said, "You're absolutely correct, but tell me, how did you arrive at the answer so quickly?"

After clearing his throat, the student replied, "You see professor, I have a brother; he's 22, and he's only half nuts."

Imagine the look on the professor’s face! Here’s another side-splitting joke.

A math professor, Dave, calls a plumber to have his broken sink fixed. A rather efficient plumber comes over and quickly fixes the sink. The professor is grateful to see his sink finally fixed.

But when he sees the bill, his jaw dropped. "How can you charge this much?” he asks the plumber. “This is half of my paycheck!" But he pays it anyways.

Before leaving the house, the plumber tells the professor, "Hey, we are looking for more plumbers. You could become a plumber and triple your salary. Just make sure you say you only made it to 6th grade, they don't like educated people."

Dave takes him up on the offer and becomes a plumber. He is happy that his salary tripled although he doesn't have to work nearly as hard. One day, the company makes an announcement that all of their plumbers must get a 7th-grade education. The company enrolls them in a night school.

On the first day of night school, they all attend math class. The teacher wants to gauge the class, so he asks Dave, "What is the formula for the area of a circle?"

Dave walks up to the board and is about to write the formula when he realizes he has forgotten it. So, he begins to attempt to derive the formula, filling the board with complicated mathematics. He ends up figuring out it is negative pi times radius squared. He thinks the minus doesn't belong, so he starts over, but again he comes up with the same equation.

After staring at the board for a minute he looks out at the other plumbers and sees that they are all whispering, "Switch the limits on the integral!" He is not the only former math professor in the class, it turns out!
