    Take One

    Two engineering students were walking across a university campus when
    onesaid, "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 second engineer nodded approvingly and said, "Good choice; the
    clothes probably wouldn't have fit you anyway."

    Take Two

    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.

    Take Three

    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 blokes? We must have been
    waiting for fifteen minutes!"
    The doctor chimed in, "I don't know, but I've never seen such inept
    The priest said, "Here comes the greens keeper. Let's have a word with
    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 fire
    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?"

    Take Four

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

    Take Five

    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?"

    Take Six

    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.

    Take Seven

    An engineer was crossing a road one day, when a frog called out to him
    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 for one week 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, and that I'll stay with you for one 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."
