Hawking is thrilled with his LinkedIn endorsement

Theoretical Physicist Dr. Stephen Hawking has received his first LinkedIn endorsement, a spokesman announced today.

“Dr. Hawking is thrilled beyond belief,” Matthew Hunspurden told The Lint Screen. “He feels this kind of public endorsement on an esteemed social media site like LinkedIn will catapult his career into the stratosphere.”

Hawking, who is known to be pretty intelligent, was endorsed by Harry Tadpole from Toledo, Ohio, a self-described “retail clerk/science enthusiast.” Tadpole endorsed Hawking for the skill of “knowing smartypants stuff.”

“LinkedIn is an invaluable business networking tool,” said Hunspurden, “and although Dr. Hawking does not personally know Mr. Tadpole, he is forever in his debt for the ringing endorsement. This really could be a game changer for Dr. Hawking’s entire career.”
