Three Engineers

Now for a little change of mood from the last post:

Three engineers were standing around discussing what sort of engineer it took to create the human body.

The first engineer says, "An electrical engineer obviously created the human body. The entire body operates on a highly sophisticated electrical system with the brain regulating the whole thing.

The second engineer says, "You have a good point, but it must have been a mechanical engineer that designed the human body. Look at the physical structure; the way the muscles and bones work together. It's a thing of beauty and grace.

With a dismissive tone, the third engineer says, "I hate to break it to you guys, but the human body was designed by a civil engineer."

"What?!!! Where did you come up with that nonsense?"

"Well," said the third engineer, "Who else but a civil engineer would run a toxic waste pipeline through a recreation area?"
