Re: Repertoire of terrible jokes [I challenge you]

A manufacturing company had a problem. One of their critical machines was malfunctioning, but no one at the company could work out how to fix it. Out of options, they decide to call an engineer who had recently retired from the company. The engineer was reluctant, but after being promised to be paid for his time, he decided to have a look at the machine.

The engineer arrived and examined the machine. After half an hour, he took out a marker pen and circled a part of the machine. The company replaced the marked part and the machine worked perfectly well again.

Later, the company was sent a bill for $50,000 from the engineer. Rather taken aback, the company sent a message to the engineer demanding an itemised bill. The reply came back to the company:
  • One pen mark: $1
  • Knowing where to put it: $49,999

The engineer was paid.
