The gynecologist who became a mechanic

A gynecologist had become fed up with malpractice insurance and  HMO paperwork, and was burned out. Hoping to try another career where skillful hands would be beneficial, he decided to become a mechanic. He  went to the local technical college, signed up for evening classes, attended  diligently, and learned all he could.

When the time of the practical exam approached, the gynecologist prepared  carefully for weeks, and completed the exam with tremendous skill.

When the results came back, he was surprised to find that he had obtained a score of  150%. Fearing an error, he called the Instructor, saying, “I don’t want to  appear ungrateful for such an outstanding result, but I wonder if there is  an error in the grade?”

“The instructor said, “During the exam, you took the engine apart perfectly,  which was worth 50% of the total mark. You put the engine back together  again perfectly, which is also worth 50% of the mark.” After a pause, the  instructor added, “I gave you an extra 50% because you did it all through  the muffler, which I’ve never seen done in my entire career”.
