A policeman saw a man dressed in full cowboy garb -- hat, chaps, duster, six-shooters, boots, and spurs -- standing on a street corner in a busy city. He approached the cowboy and asked him his name.
"Call me Tex!" was the cowboy's reply.
"Well, Tex, where are you from, Texas?" the policeman asked.
"Nah, I'm from Louisiana, but I couldn't very well have you call me Louise!"
A professor was at a party and became indignant when asked if college professors were absent-minded.
"Professors haven't got bad memory," he declared. "They're not absent-minded. Don't you think I know where I am right now, and don't you think tomorrow I'll know where I was today? Would somebody like to ask me another question?"
"Yes," said another guest. "Is it true that professors are absent-minded and have bad memory?"
"Good!" said the professor. "I knew sooner or later somebody would ask me that question."
