A philosophy professor walks in to give his class their final. Placing his chair on his desk the professor instructs the class, “Using every applicable thing you’ve learned in this course, prove to me that this chair DOES NOT EXIST.”
So, pencils are writing and erasers are erasing, students are preparing to embark on novels proving that this chair doesn’t exist, except for one student. He spends thirty seconds writing his answer, then turns his final in to the astonishment of his peers.
Time goes by, and the day comes when all the students get their final grades…and to the amazement of the class, the student who wrote for thirty seconds gets the highest grade in the class.
His answer to the question: “What chair?”

Seymour doesn't get it LOL
You'll explain it to him right? Good. 🙂
Now that was a good one. That is one smart kid. Thanks for that great laugh, this morning. You have one heck of a day Sandee, along with Zane and Little Bit.
He's a smart one indeed. You have one heck of a day too. 🙂
Have a great day!
Indeed it is. 🙂
What professor? Ha,ha,ha. Have a wonderful snowy Tuesday Sandee. ( Snowy because Amherstburg has snow the last two days ) See ya.
You're silly Paul and I like that. 🙂
Lol. Good answer.
Have a good day.
Good answer indeed. 🙂
Smart kid. 🙂
There are a lot of smart kids out there too. 🙂
Another laugh out loud at the punch line. Thanks!
I'm glad you enjoyed this Jean. 🙂
He saw that coming. He was a philosophy major.He did, however, have a math professor who simply said, "write down everything you know" and left the room. It would have taken Him just as short a time as this philosophy test.
Yep, another great question and an equally good response. 🙂
His longer answer would have been, "Since I Kant think about it, it isn't". -René Descartes.
Love that quote. 🙂
Hehe clever guy g-)
Clever and then some. 🙂
Oh yes! Simply brilliant. You always start my day with a smile.
Big hugs from sunny WPB, honey…
Simply brilliant. Big hugs back honey. 🙂
It's pretty simple when you truly don't believe that it exists. Brilliant answer. Proof positive that less is more.
Less is more and it took me years to figure that out. 🙂
well that was a good one 🙂
Yes it was a good one. 🙂
Yes, genius. 🙂
Heeheehee! KISS — Keep It Super Simple!
Yes, my years working was ruled by KISS. 🙂
Exactly Odie. 🙂
Good answer. I had a thermodynamics professor who drove us crazy with problems like that. He once asked the class, "What is the color of water?" We thought it was a trick question and we were stumping our collective brains to figure it out. I asked my daughter who was four at the time and it took her one second to say blue.
Your daughter is brilliant. 🙂
Very smart kid. 🙂
No overthinking there!
Hope you had a wonderful day Sandee! Smooches to Little Bit!
Over thinking is a terrible thing. I've done it more than once. 🙂
He's one smart kid 🙂 sometimes over analyzing and over thinking make it more complicated than it really is right?
Most of the time over analyzing is a bad thing. 🙂
Very smart indeed Binky. 🙂
Great answer! y-)
Well, it sure didn't take him long on that final. 🙂
Ha!!! So true of the highly educated & seemingly brilliant minds who so often overlook the obvious.
Kids can usually see the obvious far quicker than us adults too. 🙂
