Did I say that out loud???


Recommended Posts

This is a great example of "Did I say that out loud???"


In a biology class, the professor was discussing the high glucose levels

found in semen which gives the sperm all the energy for their journey.

A female freshman raised her hand and asked, "If I understand you

correctly, you're saying there is a lot of glucose, as in sugar, in

semen?" "That's correct," responded the professor, going on to add

statistical info. Raising her hand again, she asked, "Then why doesn't

it taste sweet?"

After a stunned silence, the whole class burst out laughing. The poor

girl's face turned bright red, and as she realized exactly what she had

inadvertently said (or rather implied), she picked up her books without

a word and walked out of class. However, as she was going out the door,

the professor's reply was classic. Totally straight-faced he answered

her question. "It doesn't taste sweet because the taste buds for

sweetness are on the tip of your tongue and not the back of your throat.

Have a good day."
