I've got a joke too

Writing about I've got a joke… from The randomness of tomorrow, today!

Today at work I've been amused to come across a sheaf of engineering works contract documents, in which the Project Management Team has been referred to by acronym. Highlights include "Plans shall be submitted to the PMT for acceptance". Sounds like being in a relationship.

Then I had a little look at the blogs (in my lunch hour, of course) and saw Richard's painful but amusing post. This reminded me of an engineering joke I blogged some time ago, about the firing order of a single-cylinder engine. Trust me, it was comedy gold.

What jokes related to your subject do you know and/or secretly chuckle at? Don't worry if most people won't get it, that's kinda the point.

  1. (Not my subject but…)

    Why is Heisenberg crap in bed?

    Because when he has the energy he doesn't have the time, and when he has the time whe doesn't have the energy.

  2. (Probably heard this before): To the pessimist, the glass is half empty. To the optimist, the glass is half full. To the engineer, the glass is twice as big as it needs to be.

    I have many more jokes relating to engineers etc but most of them are quite long (along the lines of Englishman, Irishman and Scotsman jokes). Not sure they quite count in this vein…

  3. Along the lines of the Cat Dog Sine Theta thing…
    What do you get if you cross a cat and a mountaineer? Nothing, as you can't cross a scalar…

    Ooh. Check me out (actually, Jon told me that, but I have now stolen it… Mmmmmmmmwahahahaha)

  4. There are so many Classics jokes I'd have to book an appointment to tell you them all!

  5. Genius, all the above. How about a free sample, Vicky?

    I'm waiting for a biochemist to call by and leave a comment so I can initiate a joke thus:

    How much does a pint of adenosine triphosphate cost?
    (If a chemist doesn't call by one of you will have to pretend).

    Also I've got another engineering one:
    How many engineers does it take to change a lightbulb?
    – One; we're not f*cking stupid you know.

    I made that one up myself. Could you tell?

  6. I should forward you my engineering ones SiY…

  7. Not technically a joke…

    Jonnhy used to be with us
    But now he's with us no more
    Cos what he thought was h2o
    was h2so4

  8. I did hear a genius one the other day from my Greek lecturer about the principal parts of latin verbs.

    I'll get back to you on that one!

  9. Vicky: I'm on tenterhooks. Of course.

    Holly: no biochemists, so you'll have to do. To recap:

    How much does a pint of adenosine triphosphate cost?

    Um, it's funnier out loud.

  10. Not my subject, but it's nerdy and it made me laugh so I suppose it fits in here.

    A C, an Eb and a G walk into a bar. The barman says "Sorry, I don't serve minors", so the Eb leaves and the other two have a fifth between them.

  11. Oh dear… As a biochemist that joke hurts my spleen. Ow Simon, ow! What's worse is that I laughed too. :s
