A great professor went to another town. He wanted to speak to students and professors from another school. His assistant went with him. His assistant always went with him. This day his assistant had an idea. “Boss, I know what you say very well. I remember everything. I can speak today and you can relax.” “It is a great idea,” the professor answered.

When they went to the room, the assistant stood before the people and the professor sat in the back of the room. The assistant was perfect. His speaking was fantastic. At the end one professor asked a question. The question was very difficult. The assistant didn’t know the answer. The assistant didn’t know what to do. But then he remembered that his professor was in the room. “That’s an easy question”, he answered. “It is so easy that my assistant will answer it for you!”
