“What do you call someone who fixes tiny cars?"/"A quantum mechanic.”

"Quantum mechanics” shouldn’t be confused with “auto mechanics,” but there are jokes. “There is a hoary old joke: What do you call a physicist who works on quantum theory? Why, a quantum mechanic, of course!” was published in a 2004 book.

Quantum mechanics work on time machines as well as cars. “I foun my time machine, but it has a broken quantum drive. Anyone know of a good quantum mechanic?” was posted on Twitter by Jason T. on July 2, 2009. “I wonder, if your time machine breaks down do you call a quantum mechanic ?” was posted on Twitter by jim walker on February 25, 2010. “My time machine is broken.

Wikipedia: Quantum mechanics
Quantum mechanics (QM; also known as quantum physics, quantum theory, the wave mechanical model, or matrix mechanics), including quantum field theory, is a fundamental theory in physics which describes nature at the smallest scales of energy levels of atoms and subatomic particles.

There is a hoary old joke: What do you call a physicist who works on quantum theory? Why, a quantum mechanic, of course! The joke is funny (at least to physicists) because most quantum theorists are just about as far from being practical, applied types as it is possible to get.

What do you call a bunch of street urchins stuffed into a VW?
Quantum waifs!

(and if they overload it, you call a Quantum mechanic)
