Johnny Carson’s Time Dilation

Once upon a time, there was a great late-night comedian named Johnny Carson (predecessor to Jay Leno) on NBC's Tonight Show. One of my favorite all-time Carson jokes was given during his nightly monologue. It went something like this:

"Scientists have recently discovered the smallest unit of time that can be measured. It is the time between when a traffic light turns green and the guy behind you starts honking."
Delivery being king, Carson's dry-pan style made this joke quite humorous - ROFL!
