A Texan walked into the offices of the president of a small Texas college and said, "I would like to donate a million dollars tax free to this
The president's eyes opened wide and he said, "That is a kindly notion, sir. We will be pleased to accept it."
"There's a condition. I would like to have an honorary degree."
"No problem," said the president. "That can be arranged."
"For my horse," said the Texan.
And now the president got to his feet in shock. "For your HORSE?"
"Yes, my mare, Betsy. She's carried me for many years and I owe her a lot. I would like to have her receive a Tr.D., a Doctor of Transportation."
"But we can't give an honorary degree to a horse."
"I'm sorry to hear you say so, because in that case I can't give you a million dollars."
"Well, wait a minute," said the president, sweating profusely. "Let me consult the board of trustees."
The board was convened in a hurry and listened to the story in various degrees of shock and disbelief, all except the oldest trustee, whose eyes were
closed and who seemed asleep.
One trustee expressed the general opinion, "We can't give a horse an honorary degree, no matter how much money is involved."
At this point, the oldest trustee opened his eyes and said, "Just take the money and give the horse his degree."
Said the president, "Don't you think that would be a disgrace to us?"
"Of course not," said the oldest trustee. "It would be an honor. It would be the first time we ever gave a degree to an ENTIRE horse."
