Astronomer Jokes

Astronomer #1: So anyway the cop pulls me over and asks if I realized that I had just run a red light. So I said that I did not see the light as being red, because it must have blue-shifted as I was approaching it.

Astronomer #2: And he let you go?
Astronomer #1: No. He gave me a speeding ticket instead.
