True Story

A professor of ophtalmology retired from a Russian university after a long and distinguished career. They threw him a banquet as befit a man of his stature, with appropriate speakers praising his accomplishments and contributions to ocular medicine.

Behind him on the wall is a mural of two human eyes, very skilfully drawn, with the professor's face peering out from the lens of each of the eyes.

When at last the professor rose to make his speech, he looked at the murals and remarked that it was a good thing he had not gone into gynecology.
