    apologies up front to my dad...and someone on here... ;)

    Wait..why am I apologizing? Y'all post dumb blonde jokes all the time! :D

    * Take One:
    Two engineering students were walking across campus when one said, "Where did you get such a great
    The second engineer replied, "Well, Iwaswalking along yesterday minding my own business when a
    beautiful woman rode up on this bike.
    She threw the bike to the ground, took off all herclothes and said, "Take what you want."
    The second engineer nodded approvingly, "Good choice; the clothes probably wouldn't have fitted."

    * 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.

    * Take Three
    A pastor, a doctor and an engineer were waiting one morning for a particularly slow group of golfers.
    The engineer fumed, "What's with these guys? We must have been waiting for 15 minutes!"
    The doctor chimed in,"I don't know, but I've never seen Such ineptitude!"
    The pastor said,"Hey, here comes the green keeper. Let's have a word with him." "Hey George. Say,
    what's with that groupahead of us?
    They're rather slow, aren't they?" The green keeper replied, "Oh, yes,that's a group of blind fire
    They lost their sight saving our clubhouse from a fire last year, so we always let them play for free."
    The group was silent for a moment. The pastor said, "That's so sad. I think I will say a special prayer
    for them tonight."
    The doctor said, "Good idea. And I'm going to contact my ophthalmologist buddy and see if there's
    anything he can do for them.
    " The engineer said, "Why can't they play at night?"

    * Take Four
    There was an engineer who had an exceptional gift for fixing all things mechanical.
    After serving his company loyally for over 30 years, he happily retired.
    Several years later the company contacted him regarding a seemingly impossible problem they were
    having with one of their multi-million dollar machines.
    They had tried everything and everyone else to get the machine to work but to no avail.
    In desperation, they called on the retired engineer who had solved so many of their problems in the
    The engineer reluctantly took the challenge. He spent a day studying the huge machine.
    At the end of the day, he marked a small "x" in chalk on a particular component of the machine and
    stated, This is where your problem is".
    The part was replaced and the machine worked perfectly again.
    The company then received a bill for $50,000 from the engineer for his service.
    They demanded an itemized accounting of his charges.
    The engineer responded briefly:
    One chalk mark- $1.00
    Knowing where to put it......................$49,999.00

    * Take Five
    Q. What is the difference between Mechanical Engineers and Civil Engineers?
    A. Mechanical Engineers build weapons. Civil Engineers build targets.

    * Take Six
    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 a Liberal Arts degree asks, "Do you want fries with that?"

    * Take Seven
    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.

    * Take Eight
    An architect, an artist and an engineer were discussing whether it was better to spend time with the wife
    or a mistress.
    The architect saidheenjoyed time with his wife, building a solid foundation for an enduring relationship.
    The artist said he enjoyed time with his mistress, because of the passion and mystery he found there.
    The engineer said, "I like both."
    Engineer:"Yeah. If you have a wife and a mistress, they will each assume you are spending time with
    the other woman, and you can go to the office and get some work done."
