Don't make me laugh!

I've got a great engineering-related joke to share with you -- but I'm saving it for the chat on Friday.

Also, if you have any engineering-related jokes, I'd love to hear them, so make sure you join me on Friday -- "B There or B Square!" :-)

Jokes?!  Oh, count me in, Mr. Magnificent.   I'll be there.  It's worth attending for that alone, although I suspect you'll have other points of discussion as well...

I suspect you are right... but If I told you what they are then you would know everything that I know, at which point instead of being super I would be superfluous :-)

I always remember the line from the famous British comedian -- Bob Monkhouse -- who said:

"People used to laugh at me when I said I wanted to be a comedian. Well they're not laughing now!"

Max- There is an error in your code. Should be "(BThere | (B*B)".
