A pre-Xmas joke

A doctor, an engineer, and a politician were arguing about what was the oldest profession in the world. 

The doctor started… "Well, in the Bible, it says that God created Eve from a rib taken from Adam’s body. This must have required surgery, and so I can claim with a high degree of confidence that mine is the oldest profession in the world." 

The engineer responded, and said, "But earlier in the book of Genesis, it states that God created the order of the heavens and the earth from out of the chaos. This was the first and certainly the most impressive application of civil engineering. Therefore, dear doctor, you are wrong: mine is surely the oldest profession in the world." 

The politician leaned back in his chair, smiled, and then said confidently, "Ah, but who do you think created the chaos?"
