On the first day back to school from winter break, the students walk into Prof. Bonanova's class and see some problems scrawled on the blackboard, which looked exactly like this.

 

1)  HAND:FINGER

A.  FOOT:TOE

B. CAKE:PIZZA

C. ZOO:GIRAFFE

D. MOON:STOP

 

2)  MOUSE:MICE

A. CAT:CATS

B. SIGNET:DESIGN

C. CHORE:TASK

D. CHOIR: CHAIR

 

3)  FLAME:FIRE

A. WATER:LAKE

B. RAN:DUE

C:TALK:TEACH

D. COOL:COLD

 

4)  RARE:COSTLY

A. COMMON:CHEAP

B. CAN:OPENS

C. FRIEND:ENEMY

D. SUCCESS:TRY

 

 

The professor greets the class with a sly smile.  "If someone can correctly answer these questions, no homework for the rest of the week."

 

Slowly some students raise their hands.  Prof. Bonanova points to one of them, a football player with an astoundingly average GPA.  "Aren't the answers all A?" the student responds.  "...And isn't this math class?"

 

"No, the answers are actually D, C, B, and B." The professor responds cheerfully.  "And yes, this is math class."

 

Blissfully ignoring the confused looks on his students' faces, Prof. Bonanova writes one more problem on the board:

 

5)  DETECTIVE:MYSTERY

A. CHOP: SHINIGAMI

B. CHOP: BOX

C. CHOP: DICE

D. CHOP: POODLE

E. CHOP: REINDEER

F. CHOP: CANDLE

G. CHOP: FENDER

H. CHOP: TAME

I. CHOP: TREE

J. CHOP: CAME

 

 

"Double or nothing," the professor says.  "If you can get the correct answer, no homework for a month, if not, double the amount of homework for the next month."

 

 

Can you help the students slack off?

Haha, my friend, that's not the way we do things here in the forums. We sit, we thing, we gripe, we scream, we pull our hair, stomp our feet, shout out expletives, sigh resignedly, spin in our chairs, tap our pen against our head, give up, leave, get drawn back, sit down, and still can't figure it out. But no freebie answers. Even if we have no freakin' idea what we're doing.

Professor bonanova peeks in, wondering if there is a clue yet.

He certainly has none ... :wacko:
