Cross Country with Werner and Erwin

Werner Heisenberg and Erwin Schrodinger are racing south down a Nevada highway in a 1957 Chevrolet convertible, late for a meeting at Los Alamos. Heisenberg’s behind the wheel.

A cop pulls them over. Inspecting the German scientist’s provisional driving license, he asks, “Do you know how fast you were going?”

Heisenberg replies: “No, but I know exactly vair I am.”

Arching an eyebrow and suspecting monkey business, the cops says, “You were going over a hundred miles an hour!”

“Ach!” Heisenberg cries out to his friend. “Now vee are lost!”

Convinced something’s amiss, the cop orders both scientists out of the car and gives it a thorough search. Upon opening the trunk, he steps back and eyes the pair suspiciously. “Do you know you have a dead cat in your trunk?”

“Vee do now!” Schrodinger wails.


It’s synchronicity! Spotted this old joke in the comments section of two different websites this past week, so I took it as a sign to post it here at the Hopper.
