Joke of The Day

 A high school senior was inspecting Harvard University, where he hoped
to attend the following autumn. As he was walking across the Quad, he
stopped a distinguished-looking man and asked:  "Sir, can you please
tell me where your library is at?"
The man looked down his nose and replied: "Son, I'm head of the English
department, and I can assure you we don't end our sentences with
prepositions. Re-cast your sentence in a proper form and I will reply."
"Can you tell me where your library is at, a-hole?"
