Here's a little humor to lighten up the Taxacom airwaves.

Einstein's Speech

    When Albert Einstein was making the rounds of the speaker's
circuit,  he usually found himself eagerly longing to get back to his
laboratory  work.  One night as they were driving to yet another
rubber-chicken  dinner, Einstein mentioned to his chauffeur (a man who
somewhat resembled Einstein in looks & manner) that he was tired of

    "I have and idea, boss," his chauffeur said.  "I've heard you give
this speech so many times.  I'll bet I could give it for you."

    Einstein laughed loudly and said, "Why not? Let's do it!"

    When they arrive at the dinner, Einstein donned the chauffeur's
cap and jacket and sat in the back of the room.  The chauffeur gave a
beautiful rendition of Einstein's speech and even answered a few
questions expertly.

    Then a supremely pompous professor asked an extremely esoteric
question about anti-matter formation, digressing here and there to
let everyone in the audience know that he was nobody's fool.

    Without missing a beat, the chauffeur fixed the professor with a
steely stare and said,  "Sir, the answer to that question is so
simple  that I will let my chauffeur, who is sitting in the back,
answer it  for me."
