Russian joke of the week

Exam trick

Пе́ред се́ссией оди́н студе́нт говори́т друго́му:
– А я всегда́ учу́ то́лько оди́н биле́т – 13-й.
– А е́сли не вы́тянешь?
– Вы́тяну, я ме́тод зна́ю.

На сле́дующий день он забега́ет в аудито́рию пе́рвым. Профе́ссор говори́т: “Ну, тяните биле́т!”.
Студе́нт выта́скивает биле́т, смо́трит на него́ и пото́м со слова́ми “Чёрт, 13-й биле́т, несчастли́вый!” кладёт его́ обра́тно и всё переме́шивает.

Профе́ссор со сме́хом:
– Нет, нет, како́й вы́тянули на тако́й и отвеча́йте, – и достаёт из всех биле́тов 13-й.

In English

Before the exams, one student tells another:
- I always learn only one ticket - the 13th.
- And what if you pull another one?
- I always pull out this one, I know a method.

The next day, he comes into the audience first. The professor says: "Alright, pull the ticket!" The student pulls out a ticket, looks at it and then with the words "Damn, 13th ticket, unlucky!" puts it back and mixes everything.

Professor with a laugh:
- No, no, you pulled the 13th so you will be answering the 13th, - finds the 13th ticket and hands it to the student.
