The Professor

I thought I had a visitor from the district. A guy came in, in suit and tie, but I couldn't see his face. He was looking up at the ceiling as he struts with his back towards me. When he turned everybody in the room started laughing as they saw the surprise on my face. "What's the occasion, Atlay?" I asked. "You look so dapper today." I added. "Well, Ms., today I am a professor." "Oh?" "Yes Ms. I am a professor in the 60's when many schools and colleges wouldn't admit blacks."
And he explained to me that to fulfill an assignment in his history class he was to dress up like someone in a particular time in the history of America.
"OK. Get ready. Today you will take over the class."
"Yes, Ms., yes!!!"
