Joke about an assistant - level 2, A11
A famous professor was on his way to another town. He went there to speak to students and professors from another school. As usual his assistant went with him. On the way, his assistant had an idea. “Hey, boss, I heard you speak so many times, I remember everything perfectly. I could speak tonight and you could only relax.” “It sounds great,” the professor answered.
When they got to the room, the assistant stood in front of the people and the professor sat into the back of the room. The assistant was perfect and his speaking was fantastic. At the end he asked if there were any questions. “Yes,” said one professor. Then he asked a very difficult technical question. The assistant didn’t know the answer. The assistant started to panic for a moment 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!”
