Little Quizzies

Legend: Coed makes unintentionally risque remark about professor’s “little Quizzies.”

Example: [Bronner, 1990]
There’s also the tough prof who gives students painful quizzes, which he irritatingly calls his “little quizzies.” After the third or so ordeal with these “quizzies,” a coed tells her classmate, “If those are his quizzies, I’d hate to see his testes.”

Origins: references to the “little quizzies” tale date to 1962, but the tale itself has been around since the early 1950s. It continues to surface among college students to this day. Similar to a number of other college legends (salty), it swings on the notion of a hapless coed’s blurting out the wrong thing, unaware (at least for the moment) of how her comment will be taken.
