"One thing that's always bugged me was that, if you asked someone to tell an engineering joke, they were always jokes that were disparaging. Engineers seem to have a bad stereotype, and this is from the jokes. This reputation means that we get quite a few email forwards joking about engineers at our expense. But my favourite jokes have always been the jokes by engineers. Yet I didn't feel like there were any civil engineering jokes that reflected our profession in a positive way. That always never sat right with me. I wanted to see if we could do better."
