Understanding Engineers

Two engineering students, one pushing a bike, were
walking across a university campus when the other 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, threw it to the ground, took off all her
clothes and said, "Take what you want."The first engineer nodded
approvingly and said, "Good choice; the clothes probably wouldn't have
fit you anyway."

To the optimist, the glass is half full. To the pessimist, the glass
is half empty. To the engineer, the glass is twice as big as it needs
to be.

A priest, a doctor, and an engineer were waiting one morning for a
particularly slow group of golfers.The engineer fumed, "What's with
those guys? We must have been waiting for fifteen minutes!"The doctor
chimed in, "I don't know, but I've never seen such inept golf!"The
priest said, "Here comes the greens-keeper. Let's have a word with
him."He said, "Hello George, what's wrong 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 firemen. They lost their sight saving
our clubhouse from a fire last year, so we always let them play for
free anytime."The group fell silent for a moment. The priest said, "
That's so sad. I think I will say a special prayer for them
tonight."The doctor said, "Good idea. I'm going to contact my
ophthalmologist colleague and see if there's anything he can do for
them."The engineer said, "Why can't they play at night?"

What is the difference between mechanical engineers and civil
engineers?Mechanical engineers build weapons and civil engineers build
targets.

The graduate with a science degree asks, "Why does it work?"
The graduate with an engineering degree asks, "How does it work?"
The graduate with an accounting degree asks, "How much will it cost?"
The graduate with an arts degree asks, "Do you want fries with that?"

Normal people believe that if it ain't broke, don't fix it.Engineers
believe that if it ain't broke, it doesn't have enough features yet.

An engineer was crossing the road one day, when a frog called out to
him and said, "If you kiss me I'll turn back 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 I'll turn back into a
beautiful princess and stay with you for a week."The engineer took the
frog out of his pocket, smiled at it and returned it to his pocket.
The frog then cried out, "If you kiss me I'll turn back into a
beautiful princess and stay with you for a week and do ANYTHING you
want me to." Again the engineer took the frog out of his pocket,
smiled at it and returned it to his pocket.Finally the frog asked,
"What's the matter? I've told you I'm a beautiful princess and that
I'll stay with you for a week and do ANYTHING you want me to. 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!"
