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.
A group of Sales and Marketing experts
were given the assignment of measuring the height of a flagpole. Wearing suits and ties, they marched out to the
flagpole with their ladders and tape measures, falling all over themselves to get an accurate reading.
An Engineer comes along and sees what they're trying to do. He walks over, pulls the flagpole out of the ground,
lays it flat on the ground, measures it from end to end, gives the measurement to one of the so-called experts,
puts the pole back vertically into its slot in the ground and walks away.
After the Engineer has gone, the
sales guy turns to a marketing guy and laughs. "Isn't that just like an Engineer?" he says. "We're looking for the
height, and he gives us the length!"
