The Reason Behind Albert Einstein's Tongue

Albert Einstein is known as one of the most genius person in the history of mankind. But he's also known as a funny, kind and a warmhearted man. The most famous hilarious moment of Einstein would be when he stuck out his tongue when a photographer took his picture.

This event happened on Einstein's 72nd birthday on March 14, 1951, when he sat on the back of his car with his wife and his friend, Dr Frank Aydelotte. Photographer Arthur Sasse was trying to persuade him to smile for the camera, but having smiled for photographers many times that day, Einstein stuck out his tongue instead.

This photo became one of the most popular photos ever taken of Einstein and it is well recognized in popular culture, often used in merchandise depicting Einstein in a lighthearted sense.

Fun or Not:

Oh wow I actually didn't know the history behind the infamous picture. I guess Arthur Sasse was lucky because even if he didn't get Einstein to smile, he got one of the most popular photos of Einstein.

Would be interesting to see Einstein in his other more normal photos is what I'm thinking after reading this. I remember this photo, and the other photo that people make fun of where he is at the blackboard writing some equations (and most people photoshop something funny on the board lol)
