Morris the loudmouth mechanic was removing the cylinder heads from the motor of a car when he spotted the famous heart surgeon Dr. Michael DeBakey, who was, waiting for the service manager to come take a look at his Mercedes.
Morris shouted across the garage,
"Hey DeBakey! Is dat you? Come on ova here a minute."
The famous surgeon, a bit surprised, walked over to where Morris the mechanic was working on the car.
Morris straightened up, wiped his hands on a rag and asked argumentatively, "So Mr. Fancy Doctor, look at dis here work. I also open hearts, take valves out, grind em, put in new parts, and when I finish dis baby will purr like a kitten. So how come you get da big bucks, when you an me is doing basically da same work?"
Dr. DeBakey leaned over and whispered to Morris,"Try doing it with the engine running."
