    The Mechanic

    A mechanic was removing a cylinder head from the motor of a Harley Davidson when he spotted a well known heart surgeon in his shop. The surgeon was there waiting for the service manager to come take a look at his bike. The mechanic shouted across the garage, "Hey, Doc, can I ask you a question?"

    The surgeon, a bit surprised, walked over to the mechanic working on the motorcycle. The mechanic straightened up, wiped his hands on a rag and said, "So Doc, look at this engine. I open its heart, take valves out, fix 'em, put 'em back in, and when I finish, it works just like new."

    "Yes, so what's your question?" the doc asks.

    "Well, how come I get such a small salary and you get the really big bucks, when you and I are doing basically the same work?"

    The surgeon paused, smiled and leaned over, and whispered to the mechanic, "Try doing it with the engine running."

    Yessir, the battery cable could still be attached allowing the electrics to work. It'd be running as much as a patient with a stopped heart!
