    Rumor has it an engineer I know drafted this bracket on his CAD software and submitted this to his local high-end machine shop for quote at the end of the day on April 1. Late that night the machine shop owner stared bleary eyed at the drawing and finally e-mailed back asking for the solid model. Said engineer replied back that for some odd reason the solid model was corrupted and did not render correctly, but if he could quote it that would be great. Later said engineer received a phone call regarding and half way through the conversation the shop owner finally blurts out "Are you messing with me???". Said engineer later had a very hard time convincing the machine shop owner that a tiny part he designed that by chance looked like "Mickey Mouse"'s silhouette was real and not another joke.

    As a very smart lady I know puts it - He who lives by the practical joke, dies by the practical joke...

    I carry around a (rather intricate) piece of scrap on my keyring so I can pull it out and show people. "I make shit out of metal."
    I work in "Oil" country, machine shops everywhere!

    I wonder how old that drawing is?
    I first saw it in the early 70s. I'll bet it goes back a lot farther than that.
    Worse yet would be sending it to shop owner and him not instantly recognizing it.

    I first saw it in the '60s when I was pushing a Vemco drafting table.
    My how time flies.

    I can't imagine what's in his box, I really want to ask him though. Will email him tonight.
    He looked broke into his wife's box in a meatloaf, got to the nice wrench drawer and his wife walked in. Don't know what happened after.

    I sometimes do wear an apron in the shop. I have two of those WITH POCKETS. Not when out in public. About all I wear is T-shirts. Black maybe with logos, sayings, some not exactly fit for public consumption, if ya know what I mean. Maybe a long sleeve over a T if weather directs. Rarely a button shirt or "presentable" type. Drove my girlfriends batty. Or maybe they already were batty?

    Shop aprons ain't gay. Maybe if ya wear 'em in public. I certainly ain't gay! Guess that makes me "out of touch" by the way gayness is being pushed on bakers, photographers, an such.

    I need a bunch of those stickers!

    And that would make an awesome t-shirt!

    Danger Not To Be Operated By Fuckwits

    Various sizes, including magnetic backs.

    I have been spending time driving a medium-duty truck with a heavy-duty (think double-clutch) transmission, and I am sorely tempted to get a magnetic version for the door...

    Probably incompatible with job security.

    My favorite shirt has
    I PISS
    EXCELLENCE
    on the front. Both long sleeve and Ts. I put it on one day forgetting that I had a jobsite meeting with a contractor and many doctors. Contractor met me first and noticed it, but rolled with. I guess it could have been a problem but as I had done so many 100k jobs for that medical group they laughed at it and the meeting went on.
