Oh, and I guess I have to post this...

 > Comprehending Engineers - Take Ten
 > **************************************************
 > An engineer was crossing a road one day when a frog called
 > out to him and said, "If you kiss me, I'll turn into a beautiful
 > princess.
 > He bent over, picked up the frog and put it in his pocket.
 > The frog spoke up again and said, "If you kiss me and turn
 > me back into a beautiful princess, I will stay with you for one
 > week."
 > The engineer took the frog out of his pocket, smiled at it and
 > returned it to the pocket.
 > The frog then cried out, "If you kiss me and turn me back
 > into a princess, I'll stay with you and do ANYTHING you want."
 > Again the engineer took the frog out, smiled at it and put it
 > back into his pocket.
 > Finally, the frog asked, "What is the matter? I've told you
 > I'm a beautiful princess, that I'll stay with you for a week and
 > do anything you want. Why won't you kiss me?"
 > The engineer said, "Look I'm an engineer. I don't have time
 > for a girlfriend, but a talking frog is pretty cool."

("Take 10" comes first cause it's my favorite.  I want a T-shirt that
reads "A talking Frog is pretty cool" - BillW)

 > Two engineering students were walking across campus when
 > one said, "Where did you get such a great bike?"
 > The second engineer replied, "Well, I was walking along
 > yesterday minding my own business when a beautiful woman
 > rode up on this bike. She threw the bike to the ground,
 > took off all her clothes and said, "Take what you want."
 > "The second engineer nodded approvingly, "Good choice; the

 > A pastor, a doctor and an engineer were waiting one morning
 > for a particularly slow group of golfers. The engineer fumed,
 > "What's with these guys? We must have been waiting for 15 minutes!"
 > The doctor chimed in, "I don't know, but I've never seen such ineptitude!
 > "The pastor said, "Hey, here comes the greens keeper. Let's have a
 > word with him." [dramatic pause]
 > "Hi George. Say, what's with that group ahead of us? They're
 > rather slow, aren't they?"
 > The greens keeper replied, "Oh, yes, that's a group of blind
 > firefighters. They lost their sight saving our clubhouse from a
 > fire last year, so we always let them play for free anytime."
 > The group was silent for a moment.
 > The pastor said, "That's so sad. I think I will say a special
 > prayer for them tonight."
 > The doctor said, "Good idea. And I'm going to contact my
 > ophthalmologist buddy and see if there's anything he can
 > do for them."
 > The engineer said, "Why can't these guys play at night?"
 > Comprehending Engineers-Take Four

 > They had tried everything and everyone else to get the machine

 > The engineer reluctantly took the challenge. He spent a day

 > small "x" in chalk on a particular component of the machine and
 > stated, "This is where your problem is".
 > The part was replaced and the machine worked perfectly again.
 > The company received a bill for $50,000 from the engineer for
 > his service. They demanded an itemized accounting of his charges.
 > The engineer responded briefly:
 > One chalk mark $1
 > Knowing where to put it $49,999
 > It was paid in full and the engineer retired again in peace.

Ok this two:

1. Mother had a two sons - one was normal, and second was Electrical Engineer (in
original, was: ...and second one was HAM) :)

2. Mother had a two daughters- one was pretty and cool, second was in
elctrotehnical school...

Is there on iternet to download that kind of jokes (for EEs)??
