Q: Do you know how an electrician tells if he is working with AC or DC power?

A: If it's AC, his teeth chatter when he grabs the conductors. If it's DC, they just clamp together.

Q: What did the light bulb say to the generator?

A: "I really get a charge out of you!"

At an electric company: "We would be delighted if you send in your bill. However, if you don't, you will be."

Q: What's an electrician's least favorite ice cream flavor?

A: Shock-o-lot

Q: Why are electricians always up to date?

Q: What kind of car does an electrician drive?

A: A Volts-wagon.

Q: What would a barefooted man get if he steps on an electric wire?

A: A pair of shocks.

A reward of 500 microfarads is offered for the information leading to the arrest of hop-a-long capacity. This unrectified criminal escaped from a western primary cell where he had been clamped in ions awaiting the gauss chamber.
He is charged with the induction of an 18-turn coil named milli henry who was found robbed of valuable joules. He is armed with a carbon rod and is a potential killer.
If encountered, he may offer series of resistance. The electromotive force spent the night searching for him in a magnetic field, where he had gone to earth. They had no success and believed he had returned ohm via a short circuit.
He was last seen riding a kilocycle with his friend eddy current who was playing a harmonic.
