My first post in this thread! Good that its about engines...

A mechanic was removing the cylinder heads from the motor of a car when he spotted a famous heart surgeon in his shop, who was standing off to the side, waiting for the service manager to come to take a look at his car.

The mechanic shouted across the garage, "Hello Doctor! Please come over here for a minute." The famous surgeon, a bit surprised, walked over to the mechanic.

The mechanic straightened up, wiped his hands on a rag and asked argumentatively, "So doctor, look at this. I also open hearts, take valves out, grind 'em, put in new parts, and when I finish, this will work as a new one. So how come you get the big money, when you and me are doing basically the same work?"

The doctor leaned over and whispered to the mechanic...

"TRY TO DO IT WHEN THE ENGINE IS RUNNING".

Default Some humor

My apologies for posting this here. But, this section has the most viewers and I think we all deserve some levity in our lives.

Though the context of this article is car ownership in the US, I think we will appreciate the automotive humor.

This list is from a show that I think a lot of us listened to at some point in our lives. The article brought a smile to my lips when I read it a decade ago....I came across it again today and it made my dreary afternoon just a wee bit better.

I guarantee that each of you will be clutching your stomachs by the end of it.

Enjoy!!

I'm assuming that this car was pre-owned but nevertheless 42 lakhs in repair??

Well, thats a first. 42L in repairs is so crazy a figure that itll take me weeks to digest that amount. I can understand her plight though, inflated bills are common amongst the A.S.S .

Humorous Epitaphs:

I told you I was sick.

Here lies Walter Dudley.
He found out too late,
Dobermans aren't cuddly.

Here lies Bill Boller
He got ran over by
A steam roller
(This tombstone is very tall and narrow as if to match the victim)

Mary Lass
Missed the brake and hit the gas

Jim Migg
Would like for you to dig

I was Fred
Now I'm dead

Mary Aster
Should have j-walked a little faster

C. Dracula
1236
1458
1527
1703
1823
1995

Here lies my wife,
I bid her goodbye.
She rests in peace
And now so do I.

Here lies Vlad the Impaler
He bit off more than he could chew

Here lies the Pillsbury Dough Boy
He will rise again

Here I lie
And no wonder I'm dead,
For the wheel of a semi
Went over my head.

Here lies Lester More.
4 shots with a .44
No Les, no more ...

Here lies Frank
Dead by gun
Caught in bed

By another's husband
Mary Mary quite contrary
how does your garden grow?
Quite well I bet
since it's well fed
by your body down below.

Here lies the Father of 29
There would have been more
but he didn't have time

First a cough
Carried me off
Then in a coffin
They carried me off

Here lies my wife
In Earthy mould
Who when she lived
Did naught but scold
Good friends go softly
In your walking
Lest she should wake
And rise up talking

He got a fishbone in his throat
Which made him sing
an angel's note

Here lies the Popular,
Kevin O'Tool.
He thought it was Cool,
To Smoke at School.

Here lies Johnny Yeast
"Pardon me for not rising."

Here Lies
Ron D. Vous
He met with death.
Gil A. Teen
A Tisket
A Casket
His Head is in
the Basket

Here lies Kelly
We buried him today
He lived the life of Riley
When Riley was away

Bob took time from work
By bourbon required
Then he took to the road
Now he's semi-retired

Once I wasn't
Then I was
Now I ain't again

Here lies Bill
He always lied
And he always will
He lied once too often
And now he lies still

When your razor is dull
But you need a shave
Think of the man
Who lies in this grave

It does my heart a world of good
To see you in a box of wood

In loving memory
from your grieving widow...
You slept with them all..
Now sleep with this

Any day above ground
Is a good day

A few from the Haunted Mansion at Disney World

REST IN PEACE COUSIN HUET
we all know you didn't do it

HERE LIES GOOD OLD FRED
a great big rock fell on his head

DEAR DEPARTED BROTHER DAVE
he chased a bear into a cave

HERE LIES DEAR OLD BROTHER TOR
He couldn't take it anymore
