Subject: BLAGUES-L: Pass or fail

[ My alias for today is the title of a Frank Zappa's song.  A friend just
sent me the following quote from FZ, talking about the context in which he
composed "Disco Boy", in the seventies.  Even though I haven't heard the
song (yet), I kind of like the quote in itself: 

"[...] everybody drinks and dances to these robot-beat records, which I
happen to like, you know. I'm very fond of monotony. I think it's an
integral part of contemporary civilization, and once you adapt to it,
you're better in phase with reality." (1977 interview with FZ in New Music

And now, today's joke.  (/jg) ]

     Pass or Fail

Johnny missed his final exam due to the flu, but he'd done so well during
the year that the teacher suggested to the principal that they give him an
oral exam to make up for the test he'd missed. 

The principal agreed.  So they called Johnny into the office, explained,
then the teacher asked, "Johnny what does a cow have four of, that I only
have two of?" 

Johnny replied, "Legs."  The teacher asked, "Johnny, what do you have in
your pants that I don't have in my pants?"  Johnny replied, "Pockets." 

The teacher asked, "Johnny, what is the capital of Italy?"  Johnny
replied. "Rome." 

The teacher turned to the principal and asked, "Should we pass him?" 

The principal replied, "Better not ask me, I got the first two wrong!"
