    Plumber's on his knees inside a sink base cabinet, hooking up the faucet. Electrician shows up at the job and brings his tools into the kitchen.

    Plumber: "You the electrician?"

    Sparky: "Yeah, that's me."

    Plumber: "Good, can you get these shorts outta my ass?"

      This is not a joke:

      Couple of years ago I'm doing a basement. Sparky shows up to do the rough (install a bunch of boxes and string Romex). He brings in his suff from the truck, then there is a long hushed conversation between him and his helper. Finally he sends the helper to ask me if they could borrow a hammer.

      I go sure, here is one. They set about their work and I'm doing something else, but I keep hearing these strange pounding noises. I go over and they're nailing the boxes to the studs with Romex staples!

      They were too embarrassed to tell me they didn't bring hammers OR nails.

        Just for the record, the mounting holes in the straps of metal nail-on boxes are set up so that you can use rx staples to mount them. Plastic nail-on boxes come with the nails (obviously). BTW, I'm not sure I would have lent them a hammer. There's a lessen to be learned here. No tools - no work. Lineman's pliers work just as well for rx staples. Just curious, did you get your hammer back ?

          I don't know any electrician jokes. We make jokes about OTHER trades (what do they call a painter with an IQ of 75?.................................."boss").

          But there is some electrical humor around. Did anyone see the movie "Down Periscope"? I have fairly low tastes and that movie cracks me up. But in it is an electrician/radioman who's taken a bit too much voltage in his days and he is a funny character......he completes circuits through his body, and in one scene gets them out of trouble by imitating the songs of a humpback whale.

          Great stuff.

            How many finish carpenters does it take to screw in a lightbulb?........................................ .............................................













            We're so busy sweeping up the electrician's empty boxes, extra screws from fixtures, and wire scraps that we don't have time to be screwin' around with lightbulbs.

              Lightbulb jokes?

              How many border collies does it take to screw in a light bulb?

              Two: one to screw in the bulb while the other is busy rewiring the house.


              My dog is a border collie and I bring her with me a lot. While it's true she's really smart she still gets confused about 3-way switching.

                    I bet I can guess what our least favorite electrician joke is.

                        Tainting the Family Tree
                        The Smith's were proud of their family tradition. Their ancestors had come to America on the Mayflower. They had included Senators and Wall Street wizards.

                        They decided to compile a family history, a legacy for their children and grandchildren. They hired a fine author. Only one problem arose - how to handle that great-uncle George, who was executed in the electric chair.

                        The author said he could handle the story tactfully.

                        The book appeared. It said "Great-uncle George occupied a chair of applied electronics at an important government institution, was attached to his position by the strongest of ties, and his death came as a great shock."

                        __________________________________________________ ______


                        A chemist, a biologist and an electrical engineer were on death row waiting to go in the electric chair.
                        The chemist was brought forward first. "Do you have anything you want to say?" asked the executioner, strapping him in. "No," replied the chemist. The executioner flicked the switch and nothing happened. Under this particular State's law, if an execution attempt fails, the prisoner is to be released, so the chemist was released.

                        Then the biologist was brought forward. "Do you have anything you want to say?" "No, just get on with it." The executioner flicked the switch, and again nothing happened, so the biologist was released.

                        Then the electrical engineer was brought forward. "Do you have anything you want to say?" asked the executioner. "Yes," replied the engineer. "If you swap the red and the blue wires over, you might make this thing work."
                        Seeking to be the best and the safest in the electrical trade.

                            Found this one on "Joke of the day" post #15. It's my favorite. Thanks Paul.

                            What do you do when there is an Electrician staggering around in your back yard?






                            First, stop giggling.

                            Second, shoot him again.

                              Was it a electrician? I heard it was a carpentner.

                              Q: How can you tell when you are getting shocked by AC or DC:
                              A: With AC, your teeth will chatter 60 times a second, with DC you just bite down.
