Geek Jokes [Mar. 10th, 2011|11:47 am]

A mechanical engineer, chemical engineer, electronic engineer, and software engineer are driving in a car. The car suddenly dies. The mechanical engineer says, "I would suppose that a gear or pulley failed, causing the car to die. The chemical engineer says, "I guess that the car is out of fuel and unable to produce combustion." The electronic engineer says, "I believe the windings in the coil fails to produce enough spark." The software engineer says, "I think we should all get out and then get back in again."

What is your favourite intellectual joke?

One day Jesus is walking along the shores of lake Galilee when he says, "The Kingdom of Heaven is like 3x2 + 8x - 9." A man who had just joined the disciples looked very confused and asked Peter: "What, on Earth, does he mean by that?" Peter replied: "Don't worry - it's just another one of his parabolas."

Excellent jokes. I used to like the Pythagorean Theorum joke, ending, "The son of the squaw on the hippopotamus is equal to the sons of the squaws on the other two hides." (Hmm--now "squaw" is considered offensive by some, and "Native-American mother" just doesn't make it.)

One atom says to another atom "I've lost one of my electrons!". Other atom asks "Are you sure?" to which the first replies "I'm positive."

A biochemist walks into a bar.
He says to the barman "A pint of adenosine triphosphate, please"
"Certainly", came the reply... "that'll be 80p"

A neutron walks into a bar. "I'd like a beer" he says.
The bartender promptly serves up a beer.
"How much will that be?" asks the neutron.
"For you?" replies the bartender, "no charge"
