LET'S ALL MEET UP FOR OUR 110TH CLASS REUNION!
OR
WASN'T HE IN OUR DECOMPOSITION CLASS?

We got an alumni newsletter in the mail that included obituaries for recently deceased graduates. Anytime an alumnus was mentioned, his or her name was followed by something like "('84)."

Leo was reading it on the couch. Suddenly he exclaimed, "Oh! Duh! I'm so stupid." Intrigued, I asked why. "Some guy died, and they put '95' after his name. I thought they meant that was from the class of 1995, and I thought he would have died really young!"

I assumed Leo now believed the guy was 95 years old when he died. "So what do you think the '95' means?"

"Well, obviously," he said, "he was from the class of 1895, not 1995."
