A little low-voltage humor in monoku form depicting a fictional day at the Watt home... The electrical engineer's wife greets him: "WIRE you INSULATE?" Husband: WATTS it to you? Don't go blowing your CIRCUITS at least I'm OHM! Wife: "Don't you make LIGHT of this if this were our daughter, you'd be GROUNDED!" Husband: "Let's leave her out of this she can CONDUCTOR own business" Wife: "Don't revAMP your story you know it reVOLTS me when you do that" Husband: "Honey, I'm sorry it HERTZ just trying to keep you CURRENT" Wife: "Well, I apologize for my RESISTANCE I felt POWERless" Husband: "I didn't mean to give you STATIC but I'm feeling the SPARK now Let's go enjoy an ELO concert it will be a good OUTLET" Wife: "JOULE be SHOCKed to hear this... that would really reCHARGE my BATTERIES You sure know how to flip my SWITCH we should do this with more FREQUENCY" Husband, now whispering to the viewer "I just can't RESISTOR charm" *** Note: ELO = Electric Light Orchestra (70's rock band) ***

Texas TDLR license # 159367 Master Electrician...only a poet with the last name of Watt could have come up with this, although I must say that I'm not shocked. I'll be posting this at the electrical supply house tomorrow. They'll probably get a jolt out of it as well. But don't worry - you'll get the credit but I'll take a little for finding this little short while reading Watt's panel of poems. Not a lot of folks can write like this but if they put their mind to it anyone conduit. This is great John.
