A biology teacher is talking to a group of students in the lab. The class is about etymology, the study of insects. The teacher holds up a clear jar containing two weevils and asks a student to come up and select one one of the weevils as the best subject for detailed study. The student peers at the weevils skittering around in side the jar and says, “Well, I suppose that one,” pointing to the larger of the two weevils. The teacher looks at the weevil, then at the student, and says “So, you would select the larger of the two. Correct?” “Yes, sir, “ replies the student. The teacher then addresses the class, “You see, class, she has made a classic mistake. She should have known that one must always choose the lesser of two weevils.”
