A mechanic was removing a cylinder head
from the engine of a Harley Davidson
when he spotted a well-known
heart surgeon in his shop.
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 asked, "So Doc, look at
I open its heart, take the valves
out, fix 'em, put 'em back in, and when I finish, it works just like new.
So 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"
