“Should we ditch the meal and go out with these boys?”

Stephen Hawking encounters a stag-do in Cambridge:

From The Telegraph:

Chris Hallam, 29, and ten friends…turned a corner and bumped into Stephen Hawking getting out of his car. And they were stunned when the Brief History of Time author agreed to pose with them for a souvenir photo. Mr Hallam, a self-employed builder from Norwich, said: “We only came across Professor Hawking because we were lost. We were just looking for a bar and spotted him getting out of his car. His son was with him and asking him ‘Should we ditch the meal and go out with these boys?'”

In case you’re wondering, all the guys are dressed as Bananaman (it’s a British thing), a comic-book hero famous for possessing “the muscles of twenty men, and the brains of twenty mussels.”

Only twenty mussels, though. I bet Stephen Hawking is smarter than that.
