On B-school orientations

The MSD professor told us this interesting apocryphal story today - a take on the orientations that B-schools are known for:

In the town of Cambridge, Massachusetts, known most for its two top-class institutions - Harvard and MIT - a person goes to a superstore and takes a shopping cart. A sign in the store says: "Not more than 20 items in a cart". But this man stuffs his cart and reaches the counter. The lady at the counter sees him and asks: "Are you from Harvard or MIT?" Amazed, the person asks: "It's Harvard, but how did you know?" Pointing at the sign, the lady replies: "Either you cannot read, which means you must be from MIT; or you cannot count, which means you must be from Harvard!" :)
