Granted the author of this blog has had a highly syncopated presence, I couldn’t help posting here a superbly humorous and witty joke that I read yesterday in the midst of some hard work on the master’s dissertation.
Here it is…
A man was driving through the country, vast fields either side of him, when he noticed a figure out in the distance. He was so intrigued that he stopped and walked out to ask the lone farmer what he was doing. „Trying to win the Nobel prize”, he answered. „But how are you going to do that, sir?” asked the driver. „Well,” said the farmer, „I’ve heard they give the Nobel prize to people who are out standing in their field”.
This is obviously a joke with a hermeneutical substratum… the joke lives off the farmer’s literalistic interpretation, high-yielding in terms of humor.
