Take a break from the
drudgery with some of these jokes, song parodies, anecdotes and assorted humor that has been collected from friends & from websites across
the Internet. This humor is light-hearted and sometimes slightly offensive to the easily-offended, so you are forewarned. I have taken care
to censor "humor" with reproductive function innuendo and hateful tirades, so it is all workplace-safe. I have also tried to warn
of any links that will result in audio clips so you can take appropriate precautions. Please send any potential candidates for this humor page
to the e-mail link above.

Engineers are notorious for, to put it
kindly, "creative" grammar. Misspellings, improper capitalization (or no capitalization), misplaced commas,
semicolons and quotation marks, using adjectives where adverbs belong, etc. As with the examples of sentences you
see where all the vowels are removed and you can still comprehend the meaning, most texts written by engineers are
understandable in spite of the grammatical atrocities that have been committed. Well, here is one brilliant
example of where punctuation completely alters the meaning of the paragraph.
The words in the two
paragraphs are exactly the same; only the punctuation and capitalization has been changed.
I want a man who knows what love is all about. You are
generous, kind, thoughtful. People who are not like you admit to being useless and inferior. You have ruined me
for other men. I yearn for you. I have no feelings whatsoever when we're apart. I can be forever happy--will you
let me be yours?

All about you are generous, kind, thoughtful people, who are not like you. Admit to being useless and inferior.

forever happy. Will you let me be?
