A young man is working on his fathers farm, everymorning he is feeding the livestock and plowing the fields. One day he asks his dad if he will have to do this for the rest of his life.

"Is there somehting else you would like to do?" his father asks. "Well I was thinking of becoming an engineer." the young man says.

The father decides to make a deal with his son. If you pass the entrance exam I will allow you to pursue your dream. However if you fail the exam you have to return to working on the farm.  So the young man studies hard and is finally ready to take the test.

He arrives early and sits in the middle of the room. The test proctor tells everyone to open the exam and start. The young man is breezing through the test until he gets to question 40. "What's What?". Well he has no idea what the question is asking so he closes the book and goes back to the farm. A few years later he asks his father if he can take the test again. Surely there is no way the same question will be on the test. The father tells the young man that this is his last chance and if he fails to answer all the questions he will have to work on the farm for the rest of his life.

So off he goes to take the test. And again he is breezing through the test. He gets to question 40 it is one he knows so he picks up the pace feeling very confident this will be his year. He gets all the way to the last question "What's What?" "Dang it..." he says and off he goes to work on the family farm for the rest of his life.

A few years later he is dating the girl next door and he has decided to take her out on the lake for a picnic. As they are rowing across the lake a strong wind comes up and blows the young ladies dress up over her head and the young man notices she is not wearing any knickers. Eyes bulging, he asks "What's that?" "What's what?" she says as she tries to cover her lady parts. The young man slaps himself ont he forhead, "Sh*t if I would have known that I could have been an Engineer!"
