The girl replied with a loud voice, “NO! I DON’T WANT TO SPEND THE NIGHT WITH YOU!”

All the students in the library started looking at the guy; he was pretty embarrassed.

After a while the girl walked quietly over to the guy’s table and said, “I study psychology, I know what a man is thinking. I guess you felt embarrassed, right?”

The guy then responded with a loud voice, “$1,000 FOR ONE NIGHT? THAT’S TOO MUCH!”

All the people in the library looked at the girl in shock.

The guy whispered, “I guess you felt bad for what you did earlier, right? I study law; I know how to make someone feel guilty.”

Why was the duck kicked out of his psychology lecture?

He kept calling the professor a quack.

A psychology professor starts his lecture by telling the students, “Today we’ll learn about the three stages of human emotion: surprise, irritation, and rage.”

With that, he takes his phone out of his pocket, puts it on speaker, and dials a random number.

“Hello, may I please speak to Dave?” says the professor when the other person answers.

“No, I’m sorry, you have the wrong number,” says the person on the other end.

“You see that students, that’s surprise. Now allow me to show you what irritation sounds like.”

He picks up the phone again, and dials the same number.

When it answers, the professor asks, “Hi, can Dave come to the phone?”

“I told you you have the wrong number!”

“That’s irritation, my friends,” says the professor. “Now, let’s look at what rage looks like.”

He picks up the phone and dials the number again.

When it answers he asks, “Is Dave available?”


“And that’s rage.”

“Professor, you forgot the fourth stage,” says a young man in the front row.

“And what might that be?” asks the professor.

“It’s called the stage of total confusion. Allow me to demonstrate.”

“Sadness,” said the student.

“And the opposite of depression?” he asked of the young lady from Oklahoma.

“Elation,” she said.

“And you sir,” he said to the young man from Texas, “What about the opposite of woe?”

The Texan replied, “Sir, I believe that would be ‘giddy up’.”

A professor gives his psychology class a pop quiz.

One question he asks is, “What part of the human anatomy may expand up to ten times under certain circumstances?”

He picks a rather overdressed girl in the front row to answer it. “Miss Callahan!”

The indicated girl, who heard the question, stammers with some embarrassment, “Professor, I’d rather not answer that question.”

The professor says, “That’s all right, Miss Callahan, you don’t need to answer it. Is there anyone present who can answer it?”

He notes an interested face in the back of the classroom. “Mr. Hawkins!”

Hawkins says, “Yes, Professor, it is the pupil of the eye that may expand to ten times.”

The professor says, “That is correct, Mr. Hawkins.”

Then he turns to Miss Callahan.

He says, “Young lady, two things are obvious from your reaction to this question. One, you haven’t studied this week’s assignment; and two, I’m afraid marriage is going to be a tremendous disappointment to you.”

Meanwhile, another patient was in the room, hanging from the ceiling by his feet.

The doctor asked his patient what he was doing, sitting on the floor.

The patient replied in an irritated fashion, “Can’t you see, I’m sawing this piece of wood in half?”

The doctor inquired, “And what is the fellow hanging from the ceiling doing?”

“Oh, that’s my friend. He is a little crazy. He thinks he’s a light bulb,” says his patient.

The doctor asks, “If he’s your friend, don’t you think you should get him down from there before he hurts himself?”

Then the sawing man says with a confused look, “And what … work in the dark?”
