Many years ago I read the fantastic book, Revolution in The Valley: The Insanely Great Story of How the Mac Was Made: Andy Hertzfeld: 9780596007195: Amazon.com: Books[^] by Andy Hertzfeld (one of the original and leading creators of the Mac).
Now, the past few days I've been reading over Andy's web site that inspired that book and I just read the following entry which is absolutely hilarious.

Andy Hertzfeld:
Steve had managed to get Don Knuth, the legendary Stanford professor of computer science, to give a lunchtime lecture to the Mac team. Knuth is the author of at least a dozen books, including the massive and somewhat impenetrable trilogy "The Art of Computer Programming." (For an amusing look at Knuth's heady self image, and his $2.56 reward program, see http//www-cs-faculty.stanford.edu/~knuth/books.html)

I was sitting in Steve's office when Lynn Takahashi, Steve's assistant, announced Knuth's arrival. Steve bounced out of his chair, bounded over to the door and extended a welcoming hand.

"It's a pleasure to meet you, Professor Knuth," Steve said. "I've read all of your books."

"You're full of sh*t," Knuth responded.
