Amusing me, anyway:
This FB post by a friend who is a history prof: Today a student approached me after class and asked me what I ended up doing with my history major.
One of his follow-up comments:
I assumed his question to me was a comment on the quality of my lecture! Actually, it was kind of sweet. I ended up talking to him at length. He's interested in history but is not sure what he can do professionally with a history major (ok, let the jokes fly). His initial inquiry still remains so odd. In order to ask the question in the first place, he obviously intuited that I, the person who was teaching him, had majored in history. But then his brain obviously played some dastardly trick on him--thus his delicious question.
