A driver is taking a famous professor to an important lecture. ‘I’m sick of this lark’, says the professor. ‘You’ve been at all my lectures. How about you give this one?’ And so the driver climbs on stage, clears his throat, takes a breath, and knocks the socks right off that lecture. Now for question time. Up gets an audience member with a thoughtful look, praise for the important contribution, and an obscure, four-part question. Says the driver, still in the spotlight: ‘That’s the stupidest question I’ve ever heard. I bet even my driver could answer that. Bill, would you?’
My only question: since when do professors have drivers?
