This one cracked me up!!!

A mechanic was removing a cylinder head from the motor of a classic Jag when he spotted a well-known heart surgeon in his shop. The surgeon was there waiting for the service manager to come take a look at his E-Type when the mechanic shouted across the garage, "Hey Doc, can I ask you a question?"

The surgeon, a bit surprised, walked over to where the mechanic was working on the Jag head. The mechanic straightened up, wiped his hands on a rag and asked, "So Doc, look at this engine. I open its heart, take valves out, fix 'em, put 'em back in, and when I finish, it works just like new. So how come I get such a small salary and you get the really big bucks when you and I are doing basically the same work?"







The surgeon paused, smiled and leaned over, and whispered to the mechanic..."Try doing it with the engine running."

Yeah, funny....except....[bursting bubble]....they actually do stop the heart to work on it. They hook it up to a bypass machine which does the job of the heart while they start an infusion that stops the heart.

Sorry Don!! LOL!
