The Ultimate Engineer Joke (18+ only)

  1. Aug 27, 2003 #1
    Well, my friends.. if I get banned, know that it was fun (and I'll be back with a different name)

    So a Physicist, a Mathematician, and an Engineer are all asked to prove that all odd numbers are prime

    The Physicist says "1 is prime, 3 is prime, 5 is prime, 7 is prime.. Given the overwhelming experimental evidence, it's clear that all odd numbers are prime"

    The Mathematician says "1 is prime (more or less), 3 is prime, 5 is prime, 7 is prime, and the rest go by a simple inductive proof"

    The Engineer then says "Hold on, I'll prove that all odd numbers are prime once I get my dick out of this small child"

    I've heard this joke and it didn't end that way. I usually hang with sane people. Do all your jokes end that way?
