Identity Crisis

The ornithology final was coming up and the student, anxious to do well, poured over the text and all his notes for hours. When the test time arrived he entered the classroom confidently. But what's this? Lined up on the lab table were twenty pair of bird legs, no two alike. And written on the board was the exam: Identify each bird by its legs.

Stunned, the student struggled with the exam for half an hour but identified only a few birds. As he was leaving the classroom he thrust the test paper into the professor's hands, but just as he reached the door he heard, "Wait a minute! You didn't put your name on the test. What's your name?" Reeling around, the student bent down, pulled up his pant leg, and said to the prof, "You tell me!"
