Re[2]: Smarter Engineers!!

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
     Guys, loosen up a bit. We all know (I hope, we're all responsible 
     adults,aren't we?) what alcohol really does. But a joke like this is 
     just a joke. We all take a little alcohol once in a while.

[john] Gee, and they say Engineers can't take a joke.  Boy, society sure is
