    Subject: The Science of Logic

    Two builders (Phil and Eric) are seated either side of a table in a rough
    pub when a well-dressed man enters, orders a beer and sits on a stool at
    the bar.The two builders start to speculate about the occupation of the

    Phil: - I reckon he's an accountant.

    Eric: - No way - he's a stockbroker.

    Phil: - He ain't no stockbroker! A stockbroker wouldn't come in here!

    The argument repeats itself for some time until the volume of beer gets the
    better of Phil and he makes for the toilet. On entering the toilet he sees
    that the suit is standing at a urinal. Curiosity and the several beers get
    the better of the builder.

    Phil: - Scuse me.... no offence meant, but me and me mate were wondering
    what you do for a living?

    Suit: - No offence taken! I'm a Logical Scientist by profession.

    Phil: - Oh ! What's that then?

    Suit: - I'll try to explain by example.... Do you have a goldfish at home?

    Phil: - Er .. mmm . well yeah, I do as it happens!

    Suit: - Well, it's logical to follow that you keep it in a bowl or in a
    pond. Which is it?

    Phil: - It's in a pond!

    Suit: - Well then it's reasonable to suppose that you have a large garden

    Phil: - As it happens, yes I have got a big garden!

    Suit: - Well then it's logical to assume that in this town if you have a
    large garden then you have a large house?

    Phil: - As it happens I've got a five bedroom house...built it myself!

    Suit: - Well given that you've built a five bedroom house it is logical to
    assume that you haven't built it just for
    yourself and that you are quite probably married?

    Phil: - Yes I am married, I live with my wife and three children.

    Suit: - Well then it is logical to assume that you are sexually active with
    your wife on a regular basis?

    Phil:- Yep! Four nights a week!

    Suit: - Well then it is logical to suggest that you do not masturbate very

    Phil: - Me? Never

    Suit: - Well there you are! That's logical science at work!

    Phil: - How's that then?

    Suit: - Well from finding out that you had a goldfish, I've told you about
    your sex life!

    Phil: - I see! That's pretty impressive...thanks mate!

    Both leave the toilet and Phil returns to his mate.

    Eric: - I see the suit was in there. Did you ask him what he does?

    Phil: - Yep! He's a logical scientist!

    Eric: - What's that then?

    Phil: - I'll try and explain. Do you have a goldfish?

    Eric: - Nope

    Phil: - Well then, you're a wanker.

    oh, there's nothing like being stuck in a cubicle laughing at something you can't share with a colleague...
