PULLING A NIELS BOHR

My advisor pulled a Niels Bohr on me today. We have this proposal to present, in which we have to come up with an original idea. It's well known that most original ideas don't work, so it's no trivial matter. I had an idea, and I walked into his office and said, "Are you open to crazy ideas?" He replied, "Not if they aren't crazy enough". I walked out of the room right away.
Not fair; I have so long wanted to pull such a Niels Bohr on someone.
