A GLASGOW professor met a poor student passing along one of the courts,
and remarked to him that his gown was very short. It will be long
enough before I get another, answered the student. The reply tickled
the professor's fancy so much that he continued in a state of suppressed
laughter after passing on. Meeting a brother professor, who asked him
what was amusing him so much, he told the story with a slightly varied
reading. I asked that fellow why he had so short a gown, and he
answered, it will be a long time before I get another.--Well,
there's nothing very funny in that.--Neither there is, said the
professor, I don't understand how it amused me so much. It must have
been something in the way he said it.
