Two professors...
« on: June 24, 2014, 09:34:41 pm »
How about the two old men, one a retired professor of psychology and
the other a retired professor of history. Their wives had talked
them into a two week stay at a hotel in the country. They were
sitting around on the porch of the hotel watching the sun set. The
history professor said to the psychology professor, "Have you read
Marx?" To which the professor of psychology said, "Yes, I think it's
the wicker chairs."
Best wishes,

If it's not used by a native speaker it's not idiomatic. And idiom trumps grammar every time. Jack Wilkerson†
