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
take a look at his bike when the mechanic shouted across the garage,
"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 asked, "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
$49,875 a year (a pretty small salary) and you get the really big
bucks ($1,795,759) when you and I are doing basically the same work?"
The cardiologist paused, smiled and leaned over, then whispered to
"Try doing it with the engine running."
