Finance Professor Makes A Funny


You almost have to have a sense of humor to be in finance nowadays. As evidenced by this email, Wharton finance professor Luke Taylor--who our tipster noted is only 30 and thus understands the "Fling spirit"--certainly has just that.

Subject: will there be lecture tomorrow?

A few students have told me they're concerned about being too drunk to attend/comprehend lecture tomorrow.  I, too, am concerned.  I've decided not to cancel lecture.  However, I encourage you to attend my 9am or 10:30am section if you think you'll be unable to walk a straight line by 1:30pm.  Also, I think lecture is being videotaped tomorrow because of a religious holiday, although I'm not sure which holiday this is exactly.

Best regards,
