    There way a young lady named Bright
    Whose speed was much faster than light.
    She left home one day
    In a relative way
    And returned the previous night.

    hmmm , shouldn’t this joke be  ”After neutrino incident, Moody’s downgrades Einstein’s General
    special Theory of Relativity from AAA to AA+ ” ?
