No Bozos allowed.

A mechanic was removing a cylinder-head from the motor of a Harley
motorcycle when he spotted a well-known cardiologist in his shop.
The cardiologist was there waiting for the service manager to come
and take a look at his bike when the mechanic shouted across the

"Hey, Doc, want to take a look at this?"

The cardiologist, a bit surprised, walked over to where the
mechanic was working on the motorcycle.
The mechanic straightened up, wiped his hands on a rag and ask, "So
Doc, look at this engine. I open its' heart, take the valves out,
repair any damage, and then put them back in, and when I finish, it
works just like new. So how come I make $39,675 a year and you get the
really big bucks ($1,695,759) when you and I are doing basically the
same work?"
The cardiologist paused, smiled and leaned over, then whispered to
the mechanic..........."Try doing it with the engine running."
