A SUCCESSFUL scientist was on his way to a seminar to give a lecture on his new breakthrough in research.
His chauffeur said not to worry because he had heard the lecture many times and could do it for him.
"You can just sit at the back and relax," the chauffeur said.
The scientist thought this was a great idea, so when they arrived at the seminar, the scientist put on the chauffeur's hat and seated himself in the back of the lecture hall.
The chauffeur walked to the podium and gave an excellent lecture showing at least as much confidence as the scientist.
At the end of the lecture the chauffeur asked, just as the scientist always did, "Are there any questions?"
One of the professors in the hall stood up and asked a long question about a complicated and highly theoretical matter.
The chauffeur was panicking but finally managed to pull himself together.
"That, professor, is a very simple question," he answered.
"In fact, it is so simple even my chauffeur can answer it."
"DO you believe in life after death?" the boss asked one of his employees.
"Yes, boss," the recruit replied.
"Well, then, that's good. Because after you left early yesterday to go to your grandmother's funeral, she stopped in to see you."
