Engineer Joke

This came out of a seminar at work today on the importance of specifications. Supposedly it’s a true story from a few years ago. (And if I have to explain it to you, you’re not an engineer and it won’t be funny to you anyway.)

A note found on a Drawing at an Advanced Micro Devices semiconductor fabrication facility in Austin, Texas:

“3. Furnish and Install per MIL-TFD-1111.”

The contractor filed a Request for Information:

“We find no MIL-TFD-1111 specification. Please provide.”

The engineer replied to the RFI:

“MIL-TFD-1111: Make It Like The Friggin’ Drawing For Once.”
