“THE STUPIDEST ANSWER”. I told a particularly harsh war story here. Law professor calls on a student (cold, of course). Student answers. Professor says: “That’s not a good answer to the question that I just asked. But it’s a very good answer to the next question I was going to ask. My next question was going to be: What is the stupidest possible answer to the question that I just asked?”
I think I should make it clear that although the story did happen when I a law student, it did not involve a contracts class or any of the professors whose names have been mentioned in my posts.
