Mike Connors, who worked as an electrician from 1972 to 1998, went into Web design after he retired. To test some software, he created an amusing Web site for a fictional electrical contracting company called Waldo Electric. Here's a sampling of the site, at http://www.misters.com/waldo/.

“Running an electrical contracting firm of this magnitude is truly a daunting task. But hey — Someone's got to do it, right? That's where we come in. Whether it's replacing a GFCI receptacle in your garage or wiring the entire Las Vegas Strip, Waldo's is the company to call.”
