Friday Wisdom – Electricity

I did some electrical wiring this week so here’s all the known wisdom on electricity:

Some people are shocked when they find out out bad an electrician I am.

If you plant a light bulb, will it grow into a power plant?

I got all my electrical parts at The Ohm Depot.

Old electricians never die, they just slowly discharge.

I just saw two lights go out. I knew they liked each other.

I bought a sweater that was full of static electricity. I took it back and they gave me another free of charge.

I went to an electrician’s bar and all they talked about were current events.

They just fired the new electrician – he just wouldn’t be positive.

I was reading about these worms that feed on electric wires. They’re called electro-maggots.

Just read about the electrician they arrested yesterday – they charged him with battery.

Why to fluorescent lights hum? They don’t know the words.

The electrician’s children were misbehaving so he grounded them.

I knew this really bad electrician – his nickname was “shock absorber.”
