Funny joke from a balding journo-blogger*

David Finkelstein in The Times, London:

An economist-friend has just told me a wonderful story about a professional colleague of his.

The colleague was waiting at the airport for his flight to be called when a man ran into his section of the lounge, slightly out of breath.

“Is there an economist in here?” he called out.

My friend’s friend was delighted. He has always wanted to help out in an emergency. He puffed out his chest, stood up and in a clear voice called out, “Yes. I am an economist.”

The man looked back at him with a mixture of contempt and bewildered surprise.

“The magazine,” he said slowly.

*sans serif cannot guarantee that this joke will be funny for all journalists
