This is from Philogelos’ book of jokes.
The butt of many of his jokes was the clueless student or scholast. He might be learned but completely lacked common sense.
Σχολαστικὸς συμφοιτητὰς ἐπὶ δεῖπνον καλέσας, ἐπαινεσάντων αὐτῶν ὑὸς κεφαλὴν καὶ ἀξιωσάντων καὶ τῇ ὑστεραίᾳ παρ´
αὐτῷ ἑστιαθῆναι, ἀπελθὼν πρὸς τὸν μάγειρον· Δός μοι, ἔφη, ἀπὸ
τοῦ αὐτοῦ χοίρου κεφαλὴν ἑτέραν· ἡ γὰρ χθὲς ἡμῖν πάνυ ἤρεσεν.
A scholast had invited some friends to dinner and when they praised the hogshead and asked to dine with him the following day, he went to the cook and said “Give me another head from the same pig, it pleased us so much yesterday.”
