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.
(Sung to the familiar Willy Nelson tune about Cowboys)
Mama don't let your babies grow up to be engineers
Don't let them
fix radars for middle class bucks
Make 'em be cowboys and bikers and such.
Mama don't let your babies grow up to be engineers.
They'll work overtime
and they'll never be home
Not even with someone they love
easy to love and they're harder to hold
They'd rather give you Dolby Surround
than diamonds or gold
Palm pilot on belt loop and high water pants
goes the same way
And if you don't annoy him and he don't complain
rewire the house.
An engineer loves sweaty computer
shows and new sci fi movies
Microprocessors and robots and socks that are white
Them that don't know him won't like him and them that do
Sometimes won't know
how to take him
He's not weird he's just different and his pride won't let him
Ever be anything other than right
