Finally, the Dean called her in and explained that she was setting some kind of record for having been a senior the longest without graduating. He explained that he was afraid that she might be giving DUMB a bad name. "So I have a plan.", he said. "I will ask you one question. If you get it right, you can graduate. If you are wrong, you will have to leave." But he continued, "We want to give you as much support as possible. So we will ask you the question at mid-field of the football stadium. We will invite the entire DUMB student body to attend and give you support. Lola said that she felt that was a fair deal.
On the set day at the appointed time all the blondes at DUMB filed into the stadium and took a seat. Then Lola and the Dean entered and went to mid-field. The Dean repeated the rules and asked Lola if she understood and agreed.
Lola nodded her acceptance.
The question is, said the Dean,. How much are 2+2?
Lola's face tightened and she started repeating the question to herself. Then she started biting her lower lip.
The Dean told her to take her time because so much was riding on her answer.
Lola then started kicking the dirt at her feet all the while repeating the question. Finally her face lit up and she shouted, "2+2=4!!!
The entire student body stood up and screamed in unison, "GIVE HER ANOTHER CHANCE, GIVE HER ANOTHER CHANCE!!!
