Does this need explaining?

A student went to Nebraska on a football scholarship. He was a great running back, but a poor student. At graduation, he didn't have enough credits. But, again, he was a great football star, and the students held a rally and demanded the dean give him a diploma anyway. They were so insistent that the dean finally agreed that if Bubba could answer one question correctly, he would give him a diploma.

The one-question test was held in the campus auditorium, and all the students packed the place. It was standing room only. The dean was on the stage and told him to come up. The dean had the diploma in his hand and said, "Sir, if you can answer this question correctly I'll give you your diploma." He said he was ready and the dean asked him the question.

"Sir," he said, "How much is three times seven?"

He looked up at the ceiling and then down at his shoes, just pondering the question. The Nebraska students began chanting, “Graduate him anyway! Graduate him anyway!" Suddenly, he held up his hand and the auditorium became silent. "I think I know the answer," he said. "Three times seven is twenty-one." A hush fell over the auditorium and the Nebraska students began another chant...

"Give him another chance! Give him another chance!"
You can tell a lot about a woman's mood just by her hands. If they are holding a gun, she's probably angry.
