Mechanic vs Heart Surgeon

A mechanic was removing a cylinder head from a motorcycle when he spotted a well-known heart surgeon in his shop. The mechanic shouted across the garage, "Hey Doc, can I ask you a question?" The surgeon walked over to where the mechanic was working on the bike.

The mechanic straightened up, wiped his hands on a rag and asked, "So Doc, look at this engine. I open its heart, take the valves out, repair any damage, and then put them back in, and when I finish, it works just like new. So, how come I get such a small salary and you get the really big bucks, when you and I are doing basically the same kind of work?"

The surgeon paused, smiled and leaned over, and whispered to the mechanic..................

"Try doing it with the engine running."
