The Brilliant Scientist
A brilliant scientist, by the name of Dr. Elliot Kupferberg, assembled yet another fruitful invention that would slap anyone who dared to lie within its presence. But one last piece remained. He knew, as a scientist, that he needed to test his potentially dangerous contraption on humans. So he thought, ‘This is what my wife is for, right? No matter what happens it’s a win-win for me!’ He decided to test the machine on his son as well.
He brought his apparatus with him and met with his wife and child downstairs. By putting the machine under the table prior to the meeting, he was sure they would remain unaware of his plans. He asked his son what he did that evening, fully aware of his son’s lewd and yet so predictable nature.
He proceeded to question.
“Son, can you tell me exactly what you did this evening?” He needed not to observe his son’s grotesque features, because he was confident that his contraption would serve him well.
“Well, Dad, I spent the evening reading in my room.” Surprisingly, the machine did nothing. Dr. Kupferberg was struck with surprise. Mostly due to the fact that his son might have took a day off from his heinous deeds. But then again, he thought, ‘People do change.’
For the purpose of clarification, he decided he should ask one more question.
“Son, what book did you read?”
“Uh, I read Sun Tzu’s The Art of War.” The son was quickly belted across the face. The father knew he had won.
“Son, what did you really read?”
“Ok, ok, I read Beauty Bombshells III:World War Asian!”
He wasn’t surprised, but he knew his son had to change. He decided this would be a good teaching moment.
“Son, how lewd of you! When I was your age when I saw someone else do this I would refer the child to a psychiatrist! I could only see this in movies and I would be sick to my stomach! I never did things like this!”
The machine slapped the father. While at a loss for words, he realized that he and his son were two peas in a pod.
As he felt a sudden bout of love, his wife said happily,
“He sure is your son!” They laughed together.
The wife was soon slapped.
