A priest, a doctor, and an engineer were waiting one morning for a
particularly slow group of golfers. The greens-keeper, hearing their complaints
said, "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?"

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 forever."
The engineer ignored the plea. Finally the frog asked, "Why won't you release
me from my curse? I can make you very happy." The engineer said, "Look,
I don't have time for a girlfriend, but a talking frog, now that's cool!"

An engineering student's buddies gave him a jigsaw puzzle for his birthday.
The box promised that the completed picture would show a girl from the
center-fold of a Playboy magazine. The engineer started working on the
puzzle by first turning all the pieces face-down. "Hey, why are you doing
that?" his buddies asked . He explained, "It makes assembling the pieces
more of a challenge."

A priest, a doctor, and an engineer were sentence to death by the guillotine.
priest was first, but as the blade descended, it came to a screeching halt six inches
from his neck. "It's an act of God," the executioners agreed, and the priest was
released. The same thing happened to the doctor, and he was released. As the
engineer approached the guillotine, he said, "You know, if you added a little grease
right here, the thing wouldn't get stuck."
