My quantum mechanics professor waltzed into class yesterday chuckling under his breath, and, before we’d scarcely taken our seats, asked (in his medium-strength Russian accent),
“Deed anyone go to zhe conference at Simons Center zees morning?”
As it happened, I had, along with a few others in the class. We raised our hands dutifully.
Dr. Abanov’s eyes flashed. He continued:
” And deed you all see zhe error zat Michael made in heez presentation?”
We timidly shook our heads no.
“Ach! What a shame. Eet was wery, wery amusing.”
