Scene: a group of academics, including an academic dean, sits down at a local eatery.
Waitress: Can I get your drink orders?
Academic #1: I'll just have water.
Academic #2: Iced tea, please.
Waitress: (turning to the dean) And you?
Dean: (sighing heavily) I don't know. Hemlock?
Waitress: (without missing a beat) I'm sorry, sir, we just have Pepsi.
My only question: was she was one of our students?
