This is why I don’t have a MacArthur Grant.

A colleague just sent me a Skype message and all that was included was a link to the video below.

I responded by asking why she sent it to me.  She responded because he just won a McArthur Grant.

I respond, “Oh, I wasn’t paying attention and was waiting for something funny to happen…I guess because he was French.”

Fail.

  1. His research and what he won for is actually pretty interesting…gives a whole new meaning to that “Everything I ever needed to know, I learned in Kindergarten” poster.

  2. I guess I should have been paying closer attention, too. I had to rewatch it to find out what was going on…whoops 😉

  3. @Lisa, Damn it, I was about to make that same comment!
