Mary and Sheldon are talking about the winner of this year’s Chancellor’s Award for Science.
Hey, Sheldon. I was up in the administration office,and I happened to overhear the name of the winner of this year’s Chancellor’s Award for Science.
And you want to rub my nose in the fact that my contributions are being overlooked again?
I am the William Shatner of theoretical physics.
All right, I’ll play.What self–important, preening fraud are they honoring this year?
Oh, I’m so glad you asked it like that. You.
This is astonishing. Not that I won the award— no one deserves it more. Actually, I guess I misspoke. It’s not astonishing; more like inevitable.
I’m not sure what to do first. Maybe I should call my mother.Wait! I know— I’m going to conduct an interview with myself and post it online.
Well, good for him. the one thing the William Shatner of theoretical physics needed was an ego boost.
