A lecturer walked into the classroom and told all the students that there was going to be an emergency test. He Went straight to the board and wrote the instructions which says:
1) time is 15mins
2) no copying
3) no cancellation of answers
4) once it’s time walk away from your desk.
He told the students to get ready… that it will be a simple two-question test.
Q 1) List four of your best foods.
Immediately students started writing, it was observed that the youngmen were writing foods like Pounded yam, white rice & stew, beans, bread & tea, etc…
The ladies were busy writing Hotdogs, Pizza, Shawarma, Burger, Vanilla Iced cream etc….
All the ladies were happy until they saw the final question.
Few minutes later, the Lecturer inquired if they were through with question one, to which they echoed Yes. He then wrote the second question:
Q 2) Explain how to prepare 3 of your favourite meal mentioned in question 1.
Trouble started right about now. The ladies immediately started cancellation.
They cancelled all their first answers and started writing:
Yam, noodles, white rice, tea & bread, pap, cornflakes, etc.
I was surprised when somebody wrote HOT WATER.
