York Adams Council

What did the light bulb say to the generator?
"I really get a charge out of you!"

How do you pick out a dead battery from a pile of good ones?
It's got no spark!

A man with a hearing problem walked into a powerplant for a tour. He arrived late and had to join the rest of the group already on the tour. The man was reviewing what he had just told the group. He told the group that they wouldn't move on until they answered this one question: "What is the unit of power equal to one joule per second called?" The man with the hearing problem hadn't heard the question very well, so he raised his hand and asked "What?"

Why do transformers hum?
They don't know the words.

What did the baby light bulb say to the mommy light bulb?
"I love you watts and watts!"

Why was the free electron so sad?
It had nothing to be positive about!

Why did the lights go out?
Because they liked each other!

Two atoms were walking down the street one day, when one of them exclaimed, "Oh, no I've lost an electron!" "Are you sure?" the other one asked. "Yes," replied the first one, "I'm positive."

Locomotive: Begin by slapping your left arm slowly with your right hand. Gradually increase the speed, working down over the left palm to the end of the fingers. Then place your right hand over your eyes as if peering into the distance. Imitate a train whistle, "Whoo-whoo, whoo".

Turkey Applause: Say, "Gobble, gobble, Gobble", then rub your stomach saying, "Yum, yum."
