We were just discussing The Big Bang Theory at work, and one of my co-workers asked if icespark, an aerospace engineer, had a favorite character on the show, and if it was Sheldon, most people's favorites. I told him I didn't know who was her favorite (although Wolowitz has the closest job to hers), but that it probably wasn't Sheldon, who had this to say about her chosen profession:
"Engineering - this is where the semi-skilled workers realize the work of better minds. Hello, Oompah-Loompahs of science."
I was sooo amused at how insulted and comically annoyed Icespark was by that line on the show. It makes me laugh even now.
