If you're able to get this month's MAD magazine at your local corner convenience store, turn to page 20 and look at the first cartoon (top of the page).

You'll find it to be VERY appropriate for the electrical trade and I'm sure many of you can relate to it.

I got it and laughed real hard at the pictures. It is so true about the electrical one. The thing that was even funnier is that I showed it to a plumber friend of mine. HE DIDN"T get it at all. I had to explain both the electrical and the plumbing jokes to him.
