Understanding Engineers - Take One



Two engineering students were walking across a university campus when

one said,

"Where did you get such a great bike?"

The second engineer replied, "Well, I was walking along yesterday,

minding my

own business, when a beautiful woman rode up on this bike, threw it to

the

ground, took off all her clothes and said, "Take what you want."



The second engineer nodded approvingly and said, "Good choice; the

clothes

probably wouldn't have fitted you anyway." http://hovercraft.org.uk/images/icons/smiley_icons/icon_lol.gif



Understanding Engineers - Take Two



To the optimist, the glass is half full.

To the pessimist, the glass is half empty.

To the engineer, the glass is twice as big as it needs to be. http://hovercraft.org.uk/images/icons/smiley_icons/icon_lol.gif





Understanding Engineers - Take Three



A priest, a doctor, and an engineer were waiting one morning for a

particularly slow group of golfers.



The engineer fumed, "What's with those blokes? We must have been

waiting for

fifteen minutes!"



The doctor chimed in, "I don't know, but I've never seen such inept

golf!"



The priest said, "Here comes the greens keeper. Let's have a word with

him."



He said, "Hello, George! what's wrong with that group ahead of us?

They're

rather slow, aren't they?"



The greens keeper replied, "Oh, yes. That's a group of blind fire

fighters. They lost their sight saving our clubhouse from a fire last

year, so

we always let them play for free anytime."



The group fell silent for a moment.



The priest said, "That's so sad. I think I will say a special prayer

for them

tonight."



The doctor said, "Good idea. I'm going to contact my ophthalmologist

colleague

and see if there's anything he can do for them."



The engineer said, "Why can't they play at night?" http://hovercraft.org.uk/images/icons/smiley_icons/icon_lol.gif





Understanding Engineers - Take Four



What is the difference between mechanical engineers and civil

engineers?

Mechanical engineers build weapons and civil engineers build targets. http://hovercraft.org.uk/images/icons/smiley_icons/icon_confused.gif



Understanding Engineers - Take Five



The graduate with a science degree asks, "Why does it work?"

The graduate with an engineering degree asks, "How does it work?"

The graduate with an accounting degree asks, "How much will it cost?"

The

graduate with an arts degree asks, "Do you want fries with that?" http://hovercraft.org.uk/images/icons/smiley_icons/icon_lol.gif



Understanding Engineers - Take Six



Normal people believe that if it ain't broke, don't fix it.

Engineers believe that if it ain't broke, it doesn't have enough

features yet. http://hovercraft.org.uk/images/icons/smiley_icons/icon_lol.gif





Understanding Engineers - Take Seven



An engineer was crossing a road one day, when a frog called out to him

and

said, "If you kiss me, I'll turn into a beautiful princess."



He bent over, picked up the frog and put it in his pocket.



The frog spoke up again and said, "If you kiss me and turn me back into

a

beautiful princess, I will stay with you for one week."



The engineer took the frog out of his pocket, smiled at it and returned

It to

the pocket.



The frog then cried out, "If you kiss me and turn me back into a

Princess, I'll stay with you for one week and do ANYTHING you want."



Again, the engineer took the frog out, smiled at it and put it back

into his

pocket.



Finally, the frog asked, "What is the matter? I've told you I'm a

beautiful princess, and that I'll stay with you for one week and do

anything

you want. Why

won't you kiss me?"



The engineer said, "Look, I'm an engineer. I don't have time for a

girlfriend,

but a talking frog, now that's cool."
