Downside of going to night classes

This comes from Herve Negres Dictionnaire des histoires droles, Livre de Poche.

Marcel was a French laborer who was intent on improving himself and his status in life. To that end, he enrolled in night classes and began all too quickly to disgust his fellow workers with his new-found knowledge.

At a lunch break one day, he started again: I learned something last night that you dont know. What is the name of the person who prevented the Moors from taking over France? You dont know? Ill tell you … it was Charles Martel.

And what is the name of the man who invented the potato? You wont know – it was Parmentier.

And what is the name of the scientist who cured smallpox? Let me tell you, it was Pasteur.

And on and on.

Then Jean-Luc broke in, and said, Tell me who is Alain Lefevre? Ill bet you dont know!

Marcel thought and thought, but he had never heard of Alain Lefevre. Jean-Luc continued, You wont know. Let me tell me you – hes the guy whos screwing your wife while youre at night school!
