These engineering and science tech-centric
jokes, song parodies, anecdotes and assorted humor have been collected from friends
and websites across the Internet. I check back occasionally for new fodder, but
it seems all the old content is reappearing all over (like this is). The humor is
light-hearted and clean and sometimes slightly assaultive to the easily-offended,
so you are forewarned. It is all workplace-safe.
Ian Stewart, in his 2012 book entitled,
"In Pursuit of the Unknown: 17 Equations that Changed the World,"
An Indian chief had three wives, each of whom was pregnant. The first gave
birth to a boy. The chief was so elated he built her a teepee made of deer hide.
A few days later, the second gave birth, also to a boy. The chief was very
happy. He built her a teepee made of antelope hide. The third wife gave birth a
few days later, but the chief kept the details a secret. He built this one a two
story teepee, made out of a hippopotamus hide. The chief then challenged the
tribe to guess what had occurred. Many tried, unsuccessfully. Finally, one young
brave declared that the third wife had given birth to twin boys. "Correct," said
the chief. "How did you figure it out?" The warrior answered, "It's elementary.
The value of the squaw of the hippopotamus is equal to the sons of the squaws of
the other two hides." Read more on page: http://www.jokesoftheday.net/joke--nbsp-Indian-Having-Children/201604044
