A man went to visit his 90 year old grandfather in a very secluded, rural area of the state he lived in.
After spending the night, his grandfather prepared breakfast for him consisting of eggs and bacon. He noticed a film like substance on his plate and he questioned, "Grandfather, ......are
these plates clean?"
His grandfather replied.... "those plates are as clean as cold water can get them, so go on and finish your meal." Later
on that afternoon, while eating the hamburgers his grandfather made for lunch, he noticed tiny specks around the edge of his plate, and a substance that looked like dried egg yokes ....so he asked again..
"Grandfather, are you sure these plates are clean?" Without looking up > from his hamburger, the grandfather says......"I
told you before, those dishes are as clean as cold water can get them, now don't ask me about it anymore!" Still later on that afternoon, he decided to get dinner in a nearby town. As he was leaving, his Grandfather's dog started to growl and would not let him pass, so he said....."Grandfather, your dog won't let me
out." Without diverting his attention from the baseball game his
Grandfather was watching, he shouted...

Just the fact that some geniuses were laughed at does not imply that all who are laughed at are geniuses. They laughed at Columbus, they laughed at Fulton, they laughed at the Wright brothers. But they also laughed at Bozo the Clown.
