Ask the MB: Einstein

Ask the MB: Einstein
Q: Dear Bastard (in all of your magnificence):

We were looking through images on Google and found the Magnificent Bastard that puts all others to shame. See exhibit A and B. We can't help but notice Albert Einstein's artful dishevelment and dignified countenance. In short: too bastardly for us to compete with. Also, we noticed the tuxedo collar is used with a high sense of class. What is your opinion on this Magnificent Bastard?

With Awe,
Zach and Jon


A: In theory, Einstein should qualify as an MB. But while we don't know much about physics, we do know that artful dishevelment does not mean being so preoccupied with quantized atomic vibrations that you don't realize you've put on your wife's shorts and sandals instead of your own. Sorry, Albert!
