Linguist jokes (1)

Q: Two linguists were walking down the street. Which one was the specialist in contextually indicated deixis and anaphoric reference resolution strategies?

A: The other one.

[Please note that Language Log is experiencing temporary staffing difficulties and may from time to time have to fill up space with stupid linguist jokes. Please bear with us. Our normal level of service will be resumed as soon as possible. By the way, in answer to the several hundred queries that seem to have flooded in asking how I could be permitted to post something as stupid as this on Language Log, the answer is that it's my birthday, so I can do any damn thing I want.]
