Organic Biology

Hey, it's the first day of Summer.



A professor stood before his organic biology class of 20 seniors, final exams in hand.

"I want to say before we begin the test just how much of a pleasure it's been teaching you this material over the year. I know you've all worked extremely hard and that many of you are off to medical school after the summer ends.

"So that no one gets their GPA messed up due to a poor grade on this final - caused, no doubt, by too many senior celebrations this week - I will offer a 'B' for the course to anyone who would like to opt out of today's final exam."

There was much rejoicing amongst the class as students got up and passed by the professor, many stopping to shake his hand and thank him on their way out. As the last person left the room, the professor looked out over the handful of remaining students and said, "Anyone else? This is your last chance."

One last student rose up and took his offer.

After he had gone the professor closed the door and took attendance of the students remaining. "Glad to see you believe in yourselves," he said.

"You all get an 'A'."
