Electrical Hum – True story

Was working on a Generator switchgear with the factory representative who was from Ireland and we had the generators running and the electrical panel open with all the thick bare copper busbars visible. As most may know anything with a ton of electricity flowing through it makes this humming sound. I told the rep that the hum always makes the hairs on the back of my neck stand up.

He said ” Do u know why it hums?”

Me, expecting a technical response, ” No I dont know. Why does it hum?”

With a totally serious face he replied ” Cuz it dont know the fookin words”

What do you think?
