Your 5 Jokes for August 10, 2012: Electricity Jokes

Hearing Problem

A man with a hearing problem walked into a power plant for a tour. He arrived late and had to join the rest of the group already on the tour. The man was reviewing what he had just told the group. He told the group that they wouldn't move on until they answered this one question: What is the unit of power equal to one joule per second called?" The man with the hearing problem hadn't heard the question very well, so he raised his hand and asked "Watt?"


The Escalator

A man gets stuck on an escalator during a power cut. A security guard comes up to him and says, ‘Why don’t you just walk down?’ He replies, ‘I can’t. I’m going up!’


The Repairmen

Edney and Cole, two Ohio Edison electrical repairmen, were working on a blown house circuit. "Hey, Cole!" said Edney. "See those two wires?" "Sure," Cole answered. "Now just grab one of them." Cole grabbed one of the wires. "Feel anything?" asked his partner. "Not a thing," answered Cole. "Good!" said Edney. "Don't touch the other one or you'll drop dead!"


The Vacuum Cleaner Salesman

A vacuum sales man appeared at the door of an old lady's cottage and, without allowing the woman to speak, rushed into the living room and threw a large bag of dirt all over her clean carpet. He said,"If this new vacuum doesn't pick up every bit of dirt then I'll eat all the dirt."

The woman, who by this time was losing her patience, said, "Sir, if I had enough money to buy that thing, I would have paid my electricity bill before they cut it off. Now, what would you prefer, a spoon or a knife and fork?"


Torrential Rainstorms

Torrential rainstorms were knocking down power lines all over town. That meant, as a customer service rep for the electric company, I was dispatching repairmen right and
left.

When one lineman called a customer to get her exact address, he was told, “I’m at Post Office Box 99."

The weary lineman replied, “Ma’am, I’ll be coming to you in a truck, not an envelope."
