Einstein and Bob

September 22, 2020 | By pkelley | Filed in: Betty & Bob.

One day, while Bob was driving his taxi, he was surprised to see Einstein jump into his cab and announce that he is to speak at an important science conference located downtown.

On the way there, Einstein remarks “Say, I notice that you look a lot like me.”

Bob looks at himself in his rear view mirror, then at Einstein and responds, “Why yes, we do indeed look alike.”

Einstein sighs and confesses, “I’m sick of all these conferences. It’s always the same things over and over and nothing gets done!”

Bob agreed then laughingly added: “I’ve attended a few of these conferences and even though I don’t know anything about science, I probably could give the conference in your place.”

“Hey, That’s a great idea!” says Einstein. “Let’s switch places!”

Bob and Einstein immediately pulled over and swapped clothes. When they arrive at the conference Bob, dressed as Einstein, goes on stage and gives the usual Einstein speech, while the real Einstein looked on as a member of the crowd.

It all went well until the end of the speech.

One esteemed scientist, determined to impress, stands up, interrupted the conference to ask a very difficult question in the hopes he can stump Einstein with a question he won’t be able to respond.

Bob didn’t have a clue as to the answer.

As the whole room went silent with the audience holding their breath, waiting for the response, Bob could have become easily unnerved.

But Bob is a well seasoned Taxi-Cap driver. So he looked the professor dead in the eye, and said:

“Sir, your question is so easy to answer that I’m going to simply refer to my driver in the audience to answer for me.”
