今天室友yq同学在gtalk上给我讲了一个很逗的笑话如下: Knowledge is Power….Francis Bacon”. I understood it as "Knowledge is power, France is Bacon". For more than a decade I wondered over the meaning of the second part and what was the surreal linkage between the two? If I said the quote to someone, “Knowledge is power, France is Bacon” they nodded knowingly. Or someone might say, “Knowledge is power” and I’d finish the quote “France is Bacon” and they wouldn’t look at me like I’d said something very odd but thoughtfully agree.
