NO RATINGS
Jack Ganssle once told a story about .. A DOCTOR, LAWYER and ENGINEER, all sentenced to the guillotine.  If any malfunction were to occur however, it resulted in an automatic pardon.

 

The Doctor is called first to the platform, head positioned in place ... the guilotine is set, and then released, the blade comes flying down ... and just an inch or so short of the doctors throat it stops - stuck ... the doctor is pardoned ....

 

next up the Lawyer is called to the platform, head positioned in place ... the guilotine is set, and then released, the blade comes flying down ... and just an inch or so short of the doctors throat it stops - stuck ... the lawyer is pardoned ....

 

lastly the engineer is led to the platform, and as they are about to set him in position .. he looks up and ponders .. then yells out .. WAIT ... I THINK I SEE THE PROBLEM ....
