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) 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

Back in the 60's, a jet manufacturer
was trying to build a jet that would go mach 4 (4 times the speed of sound for you non-aeronautical types).
Finally after many years of design, the jet was finished. A test pilot took it out for it's maiden flight.
Everyone gathered around ... and the plane went to Mach1 ... Mach2 ... Mach3 ... Mach3.5 ... and the wings ripped
off, the plan hit the ground and killed the test pilot.
The engineers went back to the design and spent
months re-vamping it. They came out with the new and improved second version, but when they tested it, it had the
same disastrous results: the plane's wings ripped off and the pilot was killed in the crash. The engineers went
through 7 iterations, until finally they were about to give up.
They decided to contact Bob, a retired engineer with the reputation of being able to fix all problems.
Bob comes in, asks to see all the design figures, charts, and drawings, and takes them home to study them.
He calls the next day and says he has discovered a solution to the problem: drill holes vertically through the
wings at the exact spot where they attach to the body. At first everyone argues - the wings are ripping off now,
why drill holes to them? but Bob insists that it will work. So eventually, they give in and do it.
is tested later that day and not only does it reach Mach4, but it goes to Mach5.3 before the test is declared over
and successful. All the engineers rush to Bob and congratulate him for his uncanny ability to discover the
solution. "How did you know?" asks one of the engineers. "Well, I'll tell you. I was on the toilet, and it
occurred to me - toilet paper never tears on the perforations."
