Joke about an assistant - level 3, A11
A famous professor was on his way to another town. He was going to give a lecture there. As usual his assistant went with him. On the way, his assistant had an idea. “Hey, boss, I have heard your lecture so many times, I remember it perfectly. I could speak tonight instead of you and give you the night off.” “It sounds great,” the professor replied.
When they got to the room, the assistant stood in front of the audience and the professor sat into the back row. The assistant was perfect and his lecture was fantastic. At the end he asked if there were any questions. “Yes,” said one professor in the audience. Then he asked a very difficult technical question which the assistant couldn’t answer. The assistant started to panic for a moment but then he remembered that his professor was in the room. “That’s an easy one”, he replied. “In fact, it’s so easy that I am going to let my assistant answer it!”
