Speaker: Chuck Rolando Standard American accent

There are four engineers traveling in a car. They are: a mechanical engineer, a chemical engineer, an electrical engineer and a computer engineer.
The car breaks down.
The mechanical engineer says: “Sounds to me as if the pistons have seized. We’ll have to strip down the engine before we can get the car working again.”
“Well,” says the chemical engineer, “it sounded to me as if the fuel might be contaminated. I think we should clear out the fuel system.”
“I thought it might be a grounding problem,” says the electrical engineer, “or maybe a faulty plug lead.”
They all turn to the computer engineer, who has said nothing. They ask him: “Well, what do you think?”
“Uhm,” he replies, “perhaps if we all get out of the car and get back in again?
