I love jokes that not everybody will get. This applies even if I myself don’t get them. Yeah, okay, it can be seen as exclusionary or elitist, and I suppose that COULD be the motivation. But I rather prefer to think that these obscure jests are ways to MAKE connections, rather than avoid them. I have, on more than one occasion, asked someone to “explain the joke” to me, and I’ve never been treated with other than warmth and courtesy when that’s happened.
This is a nerd joke, referring to the “red shift” phenomenon observed by astrophysicists and which is caused by stars traveling away from each other at considerable speed. I’m nowhere nearly good enough at math to make it into the “science nerd” community, but I do get a lot of the jokes.
I also like the bumper sticker which says “I may or may not brake for Schrodinger’s cat.”
Hope all’s well out there, friends, and God bless.
