Ojo was a young college student who had stayed up all night studying for his ornithology (which is a branch of zoology that concerns the study of birds) test the next day. Feeling very confident, he entered the test hall, hoping to do well. In the hall, he saw ten stands with ten legs on them. Each bird had a sack over its head; only the legs were showing.
He sat straight in the front row because he wanted to do the best job possible and leave early.The supervising professor announced that the test would be to look at each of the birds’ legs and give the common name, habitat, genus and species.
Ojo looked at each of the birds’ legs. They all looked the same to him. He began to get upset. He had stayed up all night studying for this test only to be told that he had to identify birds by their legs. The more he thought about it the madder he got.
Finally he couldn’t stand it any longer. He went up to the professor’s desk and said, “Kilode? what a stupid test! How can anyone tell the difference between birds by looking at their legs not to talk of their names?” With that Ojo threw his test on the professor’s desk and walked towards the door.
The professor was surprised. The class was so big that he didn’t know every student’s name so as the student reached the door the professor called,
“Mister, what’s your name?”
The enraged student pulled up his pant legs and said, ” Ok, now you tell me prof! You tell me!”
