    Just found this joke on the Unofficial Apple Weblog:

    It is an old joke just altered but I had forgotten about it and still think it is hilarious. So if you've heard it already, move along :p

    Strange. I knew this joke with mathematicians and physicists. ;)

    Now it's time for the other restroom joke with Apple, Intel and Microsoft engineers. I posted it some time ago, will see if I can dig it out again...

    Edit: found it:

    Three employees, one Intel, one Microsoft, one Apple go to the restroom. After being done, the Intel employee washes his hands and uses a lot of paper towels to dry them. He says: "At Intel, we are very thorough." The Microsoft employee washes his hands, takes only one paper towel and uses even the last little bit. He says: "At Microsoft, we are not only thorough, but very economical." Then they look at the Apple employee who just walks out of the door, looks back and says: "At Apple, we don't piss on our hands."

    I seem to have a fetish about light bulbs but what the hell slamming microsoft is fun

    Q: How many Microsoft executives does it take to screw in a light bulb?
    A: None, they just redefine "darkness" as the industry standard.

    I heard it as
    Harvard -- thorough -- hands up to the elbows
    MIT -- precise -- tips of the fingers on the left hand
    BC -- not piss on hands -- walks out
