Take a break from the drudgery with some of these jokes, song parodies, anecdotes and assorted humor
that has been collected from friends & from websites across the Internet. This humor is light-hearted
and sometimes slightly offensive to the easily-offended, so you are forewarned. I have taken care
to censor "humor" with overt sexual overtones (or undertones), degrading political taunts, and hateful
tirades, so it is all workplace-safe. I have also tried to warn of any links that will result in audio
clips so you can take appropriate precautions. Please send any potential candidates for this humor
page to the e-mail link above.
I probably watched more television than I should have as a teenager. Studying for better grades would have been a much better use of my time. However, having had a bent toward things scientific from my early days, even now there are certain episodes of the shows that stick out in my mind. A while back I wrote in the RF Cafe Forums about an episode of the 1970s television sitcom "Barney Miller," where Detective Sgt. Arthur Dietrich, the show's subtle braniac, encounters a college student's working model of an atomic bomb.
While working at RF Micro Devices on a project to improve the ESD ruggedness of our RFICs, I had to do a number of presentations on progress over a span of about two years. I desperately searched online for this episode of Welcome Back Kotter, but Hulu did not exist at the time. The plan was to lighten the meeting's mood by opening with the clip shown here.
The title of the show is "Sweathog Clinic for the Cure of Smoking." Watch the entire show, or skip ahead to 14:30 to see the scene I thought would be perfect for the presentation.
