This came from Dad.
LOGICAL AND LEGAL
A young Law student, having failed his Law exam, goes up to his crusty old professor, who is renowned for his razor-sharp legal mind.
Student: “Sir, do you really understand everything about this subject?”
Professor: “Actually, I probably do. Otherwise I wouldn’t be a professor, would I?”
Student: “OK. So I’d like to ask you a question. If you can give me the correct answer, I will accept my marks as they are. If you can’t give me the correct answer, however, you’ll have to give me an “A”.
Professor: “Hmmmm, alright. So what’s the question?”
Student: “What is legal but not logical, logical but not legal, and neither logical nor legal? ”
The professor wracks his famous brain, but just couldn’t crack the answer. Finally he gives up and changes the student’s failing mark into an “A” as agreed, and the student goes away, very pleased.
The professor continues to wrack his brain over the question all afternoon, but still can’t get the answer. So finally he calls in a group of his brightest students and tells them he has a really, really tough question to answer: “What is legal but not logical, logical but not legal, and neither logical nor legal? ”
To the professor’s surprise (and embarrassment), all the students immediately raise their hands.
“All right” says the professor, and asks his favourite student to answer.
“It’s quite easy, sir” says the student. “You see, you are 75 years old and married to a 30 year old woman, which is legal, but not logical. Your wife has a 22 year old lover, which is logical, but not legal. And your wife’s lover failed his exam but you’ve just given him an “A”, which is neither logical nor legal !!”

O’Leary showed up at Mass one Sunday and the priest almost fell down when he saw him. O’Leary had never been seen in church in his life. After Mass, the priest caught O’Leary and said “O’Leary, I am so glad you decided to come to Mass, what made you come?”
O’Leary said, “I got to be honest with you Father, a while back, I misplaced my hat and I really, really love that hat. I know that Shaunassy had one just like mine and I knew that Shaunassy came to church every Sunday. I also knew that Shaunassy had to take off his hat during Mass and I figured he would leave it in the back of church. So, I was going to leave after Communion and steal Shaunassy’s hat.”
The priest said, “Well, O’Leary, I notice that you didn’t steal Shaunassy’s hat. What changed your mind?”
O’Leary said “Well, after I heard your sermon on the 10 commandments, I decided that I didn’t need to steal Shaunassy’s hat.”
The priest gave O’Leary a big smile and said “After I talked about Thou Shalt Not Steal’ you decided you would rather do without your hat than burn in Hell, right?”
O’Leary shook his head and said “No, Father, after you talked about ‘Thou Shalt Not Commit Adultery’ I remembered where I left my hat.”
