    "Humour me!!"--What does it mean?

    Hi, native speaker friends:

    I've bumped into this expression "humour me" for a couple times. What does it mean?

    Many thanks.

    Go along with my ideas, even if you think they are wrong/silly.

    ***** NOT A TEACHER *****

    The Parser: Would you please explain transformational grammar to me?

    University Professor: My dear Parser. You seem like a nice enough chap. But I do believe that transformational grammar is a bit

    over your head. I suggest that you stick to your high school level of grammar.

    The Parser: Just humor me, OK? = I know that you think that I am too stupid to understand transformational grammar, and you may

    be correct. Nevertheless, please make me happy by answering my question. OK?
