Ford vs Toyota -- you could do the same thing for Citibank vs Goldman Sachs.

If it weren't so true...

Here's another one from that EE friend of mine:

If Hannah was a clock signal, I would modulate her frequency. So then, I would spread her spectrum.

A number of years ago I was a under a machine doing making a few adjustments, while there I was "tapped" on the foot by a newly hired engineer. She asked if she could borrow a wrench. I asked "what size?"
She said "I'm not sure" Since at that time I had a 7/16 in my hand, and I didn't need it I handed it to her. She said "thanks!"
She returned a few minutes later and said "this is too small, do you have a 8/16?"

It was weeks later that I could look her in the face and not bust out laughing!

Well, engineers in the UK have a lot of time to burn -- this was posted on the HP/Agilent Yahoo Group:

"Don't code and upload"

Strangely enough, that gave me an idea of what to do with a cheap PC power supply after it burns out while load testing - make it look like an even more spectacular failure and put it up as a display of why (most) cheap power supplies are no good. ("That's the magic goo from the blown electronics.")

Default though not an engineering joke...



A Shetland pony walks into a bar. The bartender asks him, "Did you ever get over that bad cold you had last week?" The Shetland pony replies, "Yes, but I'm still a little hoarse."

A dung beetle goes into a bar. He gets so drunk he falls off his stool.

That was the most vile thing I have seen in years -- I guess you should call it "Mac and cheese".
