The 710

A few days ago I was having some work done at my local garage. A Brady Campaign worker came in and asked for a seven-hundred-ten.

We all looked at each other and another customer asked, 'What is a seven-hundred-ten?'

He replied, 'You know, the little piece in the middle of the engine, I have lost it and need a new one..' He went on to say that he did not know exactly what it was, but this piece had always been there.

The mechanic gave him a piece of paper and a pen and asked him to draw what the piece looked like. He drew a circle and in the middle of it wrote 710. He then took him over to another car which had its hood up and asked 'Is there a 710 on this car?'

He pointed and said, 'Of course, its right there.'

If you're not sure what a 710 is, read below the fold.

I love garage jokes!

Have you heard this one?

A penguin had to take his car for engine repair on a hot day.

The mechanic told the penguin to leave his car with him for about two hours, to find out what's wrong.

The penguin goes across the street to a grocery store, climbs into a freezer and ate vanilla ice cream.

When the two hours was up the penguin went back to the garage to find out what happened to his car.

When the penguin entered the garage, the mechanic looked at him and said, "Looks like you blew a seal."

The penguin replied, "NO, that's vanilla ice-cream!"
