These tech-centric jokes,
song parodies, anecdotes and assorted humor have been collected from friends and
websites across the Internet. This humor is light-hearted and sometimes slightly
offensive to the easily-offended, so you are forewarned. It is all workplace-safe.
While researching lab wall charts last week, I happened upon a large collection
of electronics-related comics on the
Keysight (cum Agilent cum Hewlett Packard)
website. They are clever puns on familiar engineering themes
(thumbnail samples below), professionally drawn by
artist Rand Kruback, and very colorful. Permission for usage, presumably
with proper attribution to the source, is granted "For your lectures or in your
labs." Screen savers are somewhat passé these days, but if you are one who still
sports such things, you can download the "
The World Without Engineers" screensaver at no charge directly
from the Keysight website.
For a guy who's formal education and professional interests do not appear to
lie in the high tech realm, Mr. Kruback has done a remarkably good job of capturing
the themes of 'our' terms in his cartoons. Like a great actor who can pull off any
role regardless of his/her personal preferences, this ability must be a trademark
of a great artist. In fact, his list of
also includes Hewlett Packard back in the 1980s, Verigy, the
City of Loveland, Simon &
Shuster, The Kids College,
REV Magazine, Strategic Alliance Managers, Roche Pharmaceuticals, Paralyzed
Veterans of America,
Research, and many more. An extensive listing of nature themed paintings and
carvings and drawings can be viewed on the Rand Kruback website.
