  • Engineers....

    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, now that's cool."

    LOL!
    Bask in the warmth of the Deep South
    No one will be denied:
    Big law suits and bathroom toots;
    We're all getting Dixie-fried.
    But somewhere Hank and Lefty
    Are rollin' in their graves
    While kudzu vines grow over signs that read "Jesus Saves."

      Yeah, there was a group of those guys in my dorm in college. When the dorm voted (over their objection) to go co-ed, they all moved up to the top floor and built a stairway door.

        Just a stairway door?

        I rather expect engineers to build an electrified fence with a microwave proximity detector or something. And that includes the female engineers.*





        *NB: I have a national civil engineering firm for a client, and I swear one could not tell the women from the men were it not for different hair and nails. They even almost all sound the same on the phone.

          Well, this WAS the 1970s. Female engineers were very few and far between. And they did figure out a way to turn the communal shower into a swimming pool without flooding the lower floors. We were never really sure how they managed that.

              Yeah, that was definitely involved. But attaching it to the walls and then figuring out how to safely drain it afterward...THAT was a feat of engineering! My dad, an engineer who most certainly would NOT have voted against girls moving into his dorm, was very impressed.

                Draining it was easy when I did it. Garden hoses and siphoning.

                  If there were garden hoses involved, we never saw them.

                  I thought about those guys when we got to the Harry Potter where George and Fred magically create a swamp in one of the Hogwarts corridors.
