Engineer Humor

For some reason, in both of the churches I have served, there are a plethora of engineers. They are wonderful men, but certain quirks and habits are common to all of them. Thus, I have become something of a connoisseur of engineer jokes. Here's few favorites:
  • How do you tell when you've met an extroverted engineer? He stares at your shoes while he talks to you.
  • To the optimist, the glass is half-full. To the pessimist, the glass if half-empty. To the engineer, the glass is twice as big as the specifications require.
  • Normal people believe "If it ain't broke, don't fix it." Engineers believe "If it ain't broke, that's because it doesn't have enough features yet."

My personal favorite Engineer saying:

"There just comes that time when you must shoot the engineer, and start production!"

those are hilarious! (I'd heard...and told...the first one, but the other two were newbies.)

Those aren't jokes, they're axioms.
