Another day, another interview with the famous professor you either love or hate.

But in the recent interview he did with the Telegraph, we learn the shocking truth that Noam Chomsky isn’t a funny guy.  The revelation comes in the first paragraph of the interview the MIT professor:

 

"I wonder whether he is having me on. I soon conclude that he isn’t; that he doesn’t do jokes; that he, Noam Chomsky, does not, in fact, possess a sense of humour."

 

Okay, without reading the article, can you guess which one of the following is not true? 

  • That Bono has an opinion on the guy.
  • That Chomsky thinks liberal intellectual culture is "narrow."
  • That his record number of Jägerbombs chugged in a night is six.
