In the spirit of Jeff Foxworthy, do you have any "You might be a Rad Tech" jokes? Here's an example:

If your resume has had to be updated 6 times this YEAR ...... You might be a Rad Tech.

If you used up all of the allowed miles on your newly leased car in the first 3 months ... You might be a Rad Tech.

If you own 20 sets of surgical scrubs but have never worked in a hospital ... You might be a Rad Tech.

Take it from there fellow nuclear professionals! :P
