    HEY finallyME! This should explain everything for you.


    Engineers v. Lawyers

    Three engineers and three lawyers are traveling by train to a conference. At the station, the three engineers each buy tickets and watch as the three lawyers buy only a single ticket.

    "How are three people going to travel on only one ticket?" asked one of the three engineers.

    "Watch and you'll see," answers one of the lawyers.

    They all board the train. The engineers take their respective seats but all three lawyers cram into a restroom and close the door behind them.

    Shortly after the train has departed, the conductor comes around collecting tickets. He knocks on the restroom door and says, "Ticket, please." The door opens just a crack and a single arm emerges with a ticket in hand. The conductor takes it and moves on.

    The engineers saw this and agreed it was quite a clever idea. So after the conference, the engineers decide to copy the lawyers on the return trip and save some money. When they get to the station, they buy a single ticket for the return trip. To their astonishment, the lawyers don't buy a ticket at all.

    "How are you going to travel without a ticket," asks one perplexed engineer.

    "Watch and you'll see," says one of the lawyers.

    When they board the train, the three engineers cram into a restroom and the three lawyers cram into another one nearby. The train departs.

    Shortly afterward, one of the lawyers leaves his restroom and walks over to the restroom where the engineers are hiding. He knocks on the door and says, "Ticket, please."

    HEY finallyME!

    Just in case (Get it? Justin Case? ) you're still perplexed, let me explain it another way:

    A mechanical engineer, a civil engineer, and a lawyer were being interviewed for a position as chief executive officer of a large corporation.

    The mechanical engineer was interviewed first, and was asked a long list of questions, ending with "How much is two plus two?" The mechanical engineer excused himself, and made a series of measurements and calculations before returning to the board room and announcing, "Four."

    The civil engineer was next interviewed, and was asked the same questions. Before answering the last question, he excused himself, made for the library, and did a great deal of research. After a consultation with the United States Bureau of Standards and many calculations, he also announced "Four."

    The lawyer was interviewed last, and was asked the same questions. At the end of his interview, before answering the last question, he drew all the shades in the room, looked outside the door to see if anyone was there, checked the telephone for listening devices, and asked "How much do you want it to be?"

    Do you understand, NOW?

    What???

    I take you VERY seriously, WE. Honest.

    And I think you oughta' apply - I doubt it's only open to U.S. citizens, WE, and how could they possibly turn down an offer to have the one and only WE the Magnificent star in their program?

    You want me to send an e-mail to alicia@metalflowersmedia.com and ask them if you qualify?
