Railroad humor

So the last few nights have been unusually cold for southern Florida, but Jack (above) and I have pretty much taken it in stride... The end is in sight. It still doesn't stop either of our dry senses of humor in the slightest. Last night for instance...
I had just gotten back on the locomotive from coupling up a cut of 58 loaded cane cars. As I was keying in the information on my M-Crew computer, I mentioned to Jack that it was still cold enough I could see my breath...
Jack: "Yeah, but at least there's no mosquitoes!"

Me: "True..."

Jack: "This engine isn't doing anything in the number eight throttle postition again..."

Me: "You know what Jack? I'm so happy to be working for a company that beleives in preventative maintenance, and everything runs along like a finely-tuned, well-oiled machine..."

Jack: "That's where you work!"

What in the world would I do without sarcasm?

Sarcasm? What's that?

Will you show me the number eight throttle position?

Was that too forward?
