On 15 September, every year, we celebrate Engineer's Day to commemorate the birthday of the legendary scholar, engineer and Bharat Ratna recipient, Sir M. Visvesvaraya.
The day is meant to be a celebration of engineering and a recognition of engineers' contribution to society. Which is all very good and noble. But for many, a more fun way to mark the occasion is to remind our engineer friends about some home truths -- you know, the basics such as the fact that they have no life, no job and no prospects with the opposite sex.
The engineers, however, embrace these swipes at them with a hearty self-deprecating laugh, proving that if nothing, they are good sports at least.
Here are some digs at engineers that we stumbled upon on the Internet. If you are an engineer, too bad!
