@BohemianNerd, no. An old joke, poorly told, with bad grammar. Copying is not clever. Copying badly is incompetence
Maybe it's just too early for this but I'm lost
@Ford9863, there was no real answer, but the game is for the other person to answer the hard question (which in this case is more like a riddle). When Einstein asks 'what type of animal is that?', Mr. Bean cannot answer it either, but he only has to pay $1 for not knowing the answer to a question Einstein asks...
@Boombalati, ah, I see. I mixed up who was saying what when I read it the first time, that's what threw me off.
@Boombalati, what do you mean? There is an answer: "No such animal exists." Well that was my answer before I read the next part. And I'm pretty sure Einstein is smarter than me so I don't believe he would have gotten it wrong either.
@BunnyGruff, unless you're being sarcastic,I think your missing the point. It's that even the smartest man alive can be out-smarted (sometimes). Even though this is fake because Mr. Bean was born the year Einstein died (sorry to be a buzz Killington), it shows the importance of wit. Mr bean knew he pays a dollar for not being able to answer a question and Einstein has to pay 1000 for the same reason, probably because he's expected to know the answer. So bean asks Einstein a question with that there is not a answer (beside saying that doesn't exist, because it's expected to be a logical question). And when Einstein asks what animal IS that, Mr bean simply gives him a dollar because he cannot answer it either (again, not saying 'there is no such thing')
@Boombalati, I see what you're saying, but that still creates a logical paradox. If one outsmarts the smartest man alive, wouldn't he then have been smartest man alive? My point is, don't bet your money on the dumber person. 98% of the time the smarter person will not get outsmarted. There's a reason smart people are smart. Thinking really hard is an actual thing people do, it's not magic. If you think really hard about a trick riddle, you are most likely going to figure out its a trick, either by an educated guess as to no such answer exists, or you could create an algorithm to determine the possibilities, and then be confident that your answer is correct, no such animal exists. Smart people aren't called smart for nothing.
@BunnyGruff, ....you must be fun at parties. I'm neither saying to bet on the least smart guy or that smarts can always be out smarted. It's picture on funny pics of a (fake) situation of when wits and clever thinking can SOMETIMES overcome vast knowledge. Someone confused about it and I explained. I didn't claim that now Mr. Bean is the smarter man in the situation or that he would be able to constantly fool Einstein. It's not really something worth debating....
Its a man. First its a baby walking on all fours, then adult, walking on two, then old man, walking with a cane which is 3.
@HeyitsMrT, but it's 5 legs, you didn't even read it did you.You just assumed, tisk tisk.
Whose the smart guy now huh? ! $$$$
"this is so non-canon it hurts"
This is so old. It used to be two people on a plane
