I'm taking a seminar course on IP, and our prof is an older guy who had worked his entire life at a fairly prestigious firm in the Bay Area. The class is limited, which means only 20 kids can take it. One kid was an extra, but he stuck around for the first few weeks to see if he could get into the class anyway. Apparently my prof convinced the registrar to let him in.
After class today, he said, "Also, I spoke to the registrar and I'd like to officially welcome Mr. [Doe] to the firm."
A burst of laughter from us, and someone quips, "Lucky!"
My prof: "Ah, I mean, to the class."
