Russian joke of the week

Test at school

Контро́льная. Преподава́тель внима́тельно следи́т за ученика́ми и вре́мя от вре́мени выгоня́ет тех, у кого́ заме́тил шпарга́лки.
В класс загля́дывает за́вуч:
– Что, контро́льную пи́шем? Здесь, наве́рное, полно́ люби́телей посписывать.
Преподава́тель отвеча́ет:
– Нет, люби́тели за две́рью. Здесь – то́лько профессиона́лы.

In English

Test at school. The teacher carefully monitors the students and from time to time expels those who is cheating.
The head teacher comes into the class:
- Oh, you are having a test? There are probably plenty of fans/amateurs to cheat here.
The teacher answers:
- No, amateurs at behind the door. Here are only professionals.


The joke is built on game of words. "Любитель" in Russian means two things:
- fan or lover to do something
- amateur, dilettante
