One day, a Mechanical Engineer, Electrical Engineer, Chemical Engineer and Computer Engineer were driving down the street in the same car.
All of a sudden, the car broke down.
The Mechanical Engineer said, "I think a rod broke."
The Chemical Engineer said, "The way it sputtered at the end, I don't think it's getting gas."
The Electrical Engineer said, "I think there was a spark and something is wrong with the electrical system."
All three turned to the computer engineer and said, "What do you think?"
The Computer Engineer said, "I think we should all get out and get back in."
"The universal aptitude for ineptitude makes any human accomplishment an incredible miracle."

Actually, the Computer Engineer had been paying attention at the time and heard something strike the underside of the car several miles back and smelt something. Then heard the sputter. "The fuel tank has a hole in it. Let's get out and push because otherwise we're going to be stuck here." 
The "Let's get out and get back in again" gag only works for Mickey$loth "engineers" with a runaway car going down a hill.

 In the modern world this might be better put, "The fuel tank has a hole in it. Somebody call Roadside Assistance because my mobile's battery is dead."
