Neither logical nor legal

An Engineering student failed his exam & decided to make a deal with professor.

Student: Sir, Can I ask you one question? If you can answer the question, I will accept my final marks; if you can’t, you have to give me “A”.

The Professor agreed.

The student asked: “What is legal but not logical, logical but not legal & neither legal nor logical?”

The Professor thought about it for hours but had no answer. He had to finally give up as he really did not know.

He gave the student his “A”.

The following day, the professor asked same question of his class.

He was shocked when all of them raised their hands.

He asked a student at random what the answer was.

He answered:

“Sir, you are 65, married to 28 year old woman, this is legal but not logical.

Your wife is having an affair with a 23 year old boy, this is logical but not legal.

Your wife’s boyfriend has failed in his exam & yet you have given him an ‘A’. This is neither logical nor legal.”
