Engineers are doing what they can to quash the stereotype that they are dull and boring The engineering subject centre, part of the Higher Education Academy's network, includes a community section billed as "a less serious section for when it all gets too much", which includes a jokes section for "engineering-related laughter". Here's a sample: "An engineer, a physicist and a mathematician have a contract to build a fence around a flock of sheep using as little material as possible.
The engineer forms the flock into a circular shape and constructs a fence around it. The physicist builds a fence with an infinite diameter and pulls it together until it fits around the flock. The mathematician thinks for a while, then builds a fence around himself and defines himself as being outside."
