Martha: Charles, I need some advice.
C: Sure, what about?
M: Yesterday I told my history professor he was an idiot.
C: You’re kidding! In private, or in front of the class?
M: In front of the whole class.
C: I assume you’re not majoring in diplomacy or international relations?
M: It’s not a joke! What should I do?
C: Is he an idiot? No, never mind. Did he kick you out of the class?
M: Not yet.
C: Why did you call him an idiot? What did he say?
M: He said the only languages worth studying are dead languages.
C: Dead languages? Like Sanskrit and Latin?
M: Yes. He said living languages are boring and decadent.
C: What? That’s nonsense. If he believes that, he is an idiot.
M: Exactly But what should I do?
C: Apologize and give him a box of chocolates. And next time, keep your mouth shut!
