Antoine de Saint Exupéry’s The Little Prince
illustrated by Gene Ha :: scanned from the original artwork :: personal collection :: 2008
Werner Heisenberg was traveling very hastily on the autobahn one day when he was pulled over by a policeman. The policeman asked, “Do you know how fast you were traveling?”
Heisenberg replied, “No, but I know exactly where I am!” The policeman said, “You were traveling over 140 k.p.h.!”
Heisenberg exclaimed, “Oh no! Now I’m lost!”
…but why would he get pulled over for speeding on the Autobahn? I mean, I understand that you can get pulled over for speeding in some sections of the Autobahn, and Heisenberg was German, but why would you make a joke about someone getting pulled over for speeding on the one road famous for having no speed limit.
I would be so scared, badgers are nuts
Also I read a book as a kid about a boy who got lost in the wilderness so a badger let him nurse for a few months… people choose the weirdest things to write novels about
