Einstein is scheduled to speak at an important science conference. On the way there, he tells his driver who happens to look a bit like him: “I’m sick of all these conferences. I always say the same things over and over!
The driver agrees: “You’re right. As your driver, I attended all of them, and even though I don’t know anything about science, I could give the talk in your place.”
“That’s a great idea!” says Einstein. “Let’s switch places then!”
So they switch clothes and as soon as they arrive, the driver dressed as Einstein goes onstage and starts giving the usual speech, while the real Einstein, dressed as the car driver, attends it.
But in the crowd, there is one scientist who wants to impress everyone and thinks of a very difficult question to ask Einstein, hoping he won’t be able to respond. So this guy stands up and interrupts the conference by posing his very difficult question. The entire room is silent, with the audience holding their breath, waiting for the response.
The driver looks at him, dead in the eye, and says:
“Sir, your question is so easy that I’m going to let my driver answer it for me.”
So the Pope is super early for his flight.
On his way to the airport, he asks his driver if he could drive around for a while because they have time to kill and he hasn’t driven a car since becoming the Pope.
Naturally, he’s a bit rusty, so he’s driving poorly, when suddenly he sees police lights behind him. He pulls over. When the officer comes up to the window, his eyes widen. He tells the Pope to hold on for a minute, and goes back to his car to radio the chief.
Cop: Chief, we have a situation. I’ve pulled over an important figure.
Chief: How important? A governor or something?
Cop: No, sir. He’s bigger.
Chief: So, what … a celebrity or something?
Cop: More important, sir.
Chief: A major politician?
Cop: No, sir, he’s much more important.
Chief: WELL, WHO IS IT!?
Cop: Well, actually, I’m not sure. But the Pope’s his driver.
