A Lexus mechanic was removing a cylinder head from the motor of a LS460 when he spotted a well-known cardiologist in his shop. 

 
The cardiologist was there waiting for the service manager to come and take a look at his car when the mechanic shouted across the garage, "Hey Doc,
want to take a look at this?
 
The cardiologist, a bit surprised, walked over to where the mechanic was working. 
 
The mechanic straightened up, wiped his hands on a rag and asked, "So Doc, look at this engine.
 
I opened its heart, took the valves out, repaired or replaced anything damaged, and then put everything back
in, and when I finished, it worked just like new. 
 
So how is it that I make $48,000 a year and you make $1.7 million when you and I are doing basically the same work?
 
The cardiologist paused, leaned over and whispered to the mechanic. "Try doing it with the engine running. "

That's a good one, Jerry.

Although, when they do open heart surgery, they do stop the engine.  Machines take over until they restart the engine.

Converse of that Joke is the Mechanic gives a bill to the Cardiologist for 4,800 for replacing the engine on his Lexus. The Cardiologist says 4800 for an hours work I don't even make that much. The mechanic reply's I know . That's why I gave up my private practice.

Very funny indeed, though to be accurate cardiologists don't do open heart surgery. Cardiac surgeons do and they deserve every penny. I've seen them working with the heart pumping away and they're sewing like mad and blood's spurting...
