A higher grade
There was a university in New England where the students operated a "bank" of term papers and other homework assignments. There were papers to suit all needs. Since it would look odd if an undistinguished student suddenly handed in a brilliant essay, there were papers for A grade, B grade, and C grade.
One student, who had spent the weekend on more "extra-curricular pursuits," went to the bank, and as his course was a standard one he took out a paper for a inconspicuous C. He then retyped it and handed the work in.
In due course he received it back with the professor's comments.
"I wrote this paper myself twenty years ago. I always thought it was worth an A, and now I'm pleased to give it one!"

A woman was chatting with her next-door neighbour. "I feel really good today. I started out this morning with an act of unselfish generosity. I gave a five dollar bill to a bum."

sitting to her right says, "I guess I should buy you a drink." The old
woman says, "All right. Bartender, I want a scotch and two drops of

For his final project in a statistics class, a student decides to conduct a survey and to make it interesting he chooses to find out peoples' favorite pastimes.
The teacher instructs that a sample of minimum 100 is required, so he sets out to visit a fairly large apartment building near the university.
He knocks on the first door and a man answers. "Sir, what is your name?" asked the student.
"John," says the man.
"Sir, I'm doing
a college study and would like to know what your favorite
He goes to the next door, and asks again. "Sir,what is your name?"
"Jeff," says the man. "Sir, would you please tell me your favorite pastime?" "Watching bubbles in the bath," was the answer.
Quite amused by the same answer, he goes on to ask a good number of people in the building and to his surprise all residents of that building reply the same.
He leaves the building and walks across the street. At the first house, he knocks and an attractive sorority girl opens the door.
The boy starts again, "What is your name?"
