Engineer joke (thanks Lindsay)

As an Engineer (by training if not profession), this tickled me…

An MBA and an Engineer go on a camping trip, set up their tent, and fall asleep.

Some hours later, the Engineer wakes his MBA friend.

“Look at the sky and tell me what you see.”

The MBA replies, “I see millions of stars.”

The Engineer asks, “What does that tell you?”

The MBA ponders for a minute…

“Astronomically speaking, it tells me that there are millions of galaxies and potentially billions of planets.

“Astrologically , it tells me that Saturn is in Leo.

“Time-wise, it appears to be approximately a quarter past three.

“Theologically , it’s evident the Lord is all-powerful and we are too small and insignificant.

“Meteorologically , it seems we will have a beautiful day tomorrow.

“What does it tell YOU?”

The Engineer friend is silent for a moment, and then speaks.

“Practically…it tells me that someone has stolen our tent.”

    I’ve heard the same joke, only the protagonists are Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson. It’s nice.
