Behind Closed Doors
No profession is safe…
A physicist, an engineer, and a mathematician are using a public restroom.
The physicist finishes at the urinal, washes his hands very well using lots of soap and water, and says, “Physicists are very clean.”
The engineer finishes, then washes his hands with a very small amount of soap and water. He says, “Engineers are able to make maximum use of scarce resources.”
The mathematician finishes and walks out the door without washing his hands. On his way out, he says, “Mathematicians know enough to not piss on our hands.”
After the other three have finished, a minister walks in, washes his hands first and then goes to the urinal. He says to the others, “At seminary, they taught us to wash our hands before handling sacred objects.”
