Bloody Electrical Engineers

A chemist, a biologist and an electrical engineer were on death row waiting to go in the electric chair. The chemist was brought forward first. "Do you have anything you want to say?" asked the executioner, strapping him in. "No," replied the chemist. The executioner flicked the switch and nothing happened.

Under State law, if an execution attempt fails, the prisoner is to be released, so the chemist was released. Then the biologist was brought forward. "Do you have anything you want to say?" "No, just get on with it." The executioner flicked the switch, and again nothing happened, so the biologist was released.

Then the electrical engineer was brought forward. "Do you have anything you want to say?" asked the executioner. "Yes," replied the engineer. "If you swap the red and the blue wires over, you might make this thing work."

thats a rewrite of a way better joke, the other one was basically the same but just funnier for some reason.

But anyways, engineers do think before they do things, i know of projects that were planned for 8 years before anything was done. its polititans that dont think

Yeah.. there was recently a thread about the same type of thing.. with a guillotine (sp?) though.

The joke is just that the (enter group type here) person is dumb.

when you have to explain it, it's never funny

and engineers in general situations think very practical so I've been told, so it's not unreasonable for the engineer to help the poor executioner out

no...it wouldn't work as say, a blonde joke.

It has to be an engineer of some sort.
This isn't pointing out the engineer's stupidity...but rather the stereotypical engineering mindframe.

I believe there are dozens of engineer jokes in the "Geek jokes" thread.

I enjoyed the joke. And it wasn't because I hate electrical engineering after being forced to take EE courses to get a programming degree. I swear.

Engineers shape this world, to say they dont think before doing something is just plain stupid

Where's your sense of humour? I'm an engineer, and I can laugh at myself. Yes you plan forever, but when it comes to the crunch you rarely stick to plan A.
