One day the professor shocked the class when he came in. He looked
to the ceiling and flatly stated, "God, if you are real, then I want you
to knock me off this platform. I'll give you exactly 15 minutes." The
lecture room fell silent. You could hear a pin drop. Ten minutes went by
and the professor proclaimed, "Here I am God. I'm still waiting." It got
down to the last couple of minutes when the Marine got out of his chair,
went up to the professor, and cold-cocked him knocking him off the

The other students were shocked and stunned and sat there looking
on in silence. The professor eventually came to, noticeably shaken,
looked at the Marine and asked, "What the hell is the matter with you?
Why did you do that?"
The Marine calmly replied, "God was too busy today protecting
America's troops who are protecting your right to say stupid crap and
act like an jack-ass.............So, He sent me."
