Professional humor among engineers… Yes, it does exist.
The turbo-encabulator and later the retro-encabulator are prime examples of engineer humor. The original technical description of the “turbo-encabulator” was written by British graduate student John Hellins Quick (1923-1991). It was then published in 1944 by the British Institution of Electrical Engineers Students’ Quarterly Journal. In 1946, Time published the gag. In Engineering SNL-style, corporations from General Electric to GMC have spoofed it, but our FlexDogs’ favorite remains the 1997 Rockwell Automation video spoof.
If you’re a FlexDog at heart, it’s sure to make you laugh.
