87. Having acquired a gladiator’s costume, a student dunce
is having fun with it in the house. Suddenly someone
announces his father’s arrival. The dunce throws away
the shield and unties the greaves. When his father finally
appears before him, the dunce pretends to be reading a
scroll — though still wearing the helmet.
88. A student dunce, returning from a trip abroad, and
climbing up a steep path, is amazed: ‘When I first set out
on this way, it was a road down; how has it now so quickly
changed, and become a road up?
89. On a voyage, a student dunce asks the captain what
time it is. ‘No idea,’ responds the captain. ‘And how long
have you been this ship’s captain?’ ‘Three years.’ ‘So how
does it happen that I, who bought a house only six months
ago, can tell the time whenever the sun shines down into
the courtyard, but you can’t figure it out from the situation of
the ship, though you’ve been captain for such a long time?’
90. A professorial dunce is often asked to give eulogies
for the dead. He writes one for someone who’s still alive,
and the guy objects. Retorts the dunce: ‘If you pass up
the chance to try it out now, do you want me to give an
extemporaneous eulogy and say the wrong thing after
you’re dead?’
