A Wee Joke on Intellectuals

So the first intellectual says to the second intellectual, “With the thoughts of my powerful brain, I create reality! I can do anything–anything!”

The second takes a flashlight out of his pocket, turns it on, and points it upward. “All right,” he says, “let’s see you shinny up the beam of my flashlight.”

But the first intellectual shakes his head and sneers, replying, “What kind of fool do you take me for? When I’m halfway up, you’ll turn out the light!”

Editor’s Note: Once upon a time, this joke was about lunatics, not intellectuals. But who can tell the difference anymore?
