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.
It is amazing what passed as good advertising strategy
back in the early days of the media. Some of the ads are zany, some are incredibly politically incorrect, and others are
downright dangerous. These examples have been making the rounds on the Internet in the last few months, so I have collected
the ones with a science / technology theme.
