This Month’s Architect Joke
(From the “WEB”)
An Engineer, a Contractor and a Developer were asked to measure the height of a flag pole. The Engineer suggested that the y measure the shadow calculate the time of day to get the sun angle to determine the hypotenuse as solve the problem. The Contractor suggested they build a scaffold to the top and measure directly the height. The Developer proposed hiring a consultant so that if anything went wrong they could blame them. As this argument ensued an Architect happened by and was listening intently to the discussion.
Once he had discerned the problem; he walked over to the pole, pulled it out of its mount, laid it down and measured it. After handing his results to the group, the Developer chimed in, “…isn’t that just like an Architect… you ask for height, and they give you length…” If you have an architect’s joke you’d like to share send it along to me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
