Down Blunder

(The math professor is known for being absent-minded, but brilliant. He’s absolutely reliant on his TA, who’s from Germany and runs all his day-to-day affairs. Today’s the first day of class, and the professor is showing us photos from his summer vacation.)

Professor: “…so after India, we spent a week in Austria, and [TA] was kind enough to teach me some German: ‘hallo, ich bin eine Amerikan Mathematik-Professor!’ But I found out that everyone there spoke English.”

TA: “Ah, but everyone will treat you better if you show them you speak some of the language!”

Professor: “I tried! They just told me they couldn’t speak German! Is the entire country a practical joke?”

(The next slide is a photo of him excitedly waving near a kangaroo.)
