Wit and Humor

Although neither had pilot training, Bob and Bill rented a private plane, confident that they could figure out how to control it on their own, due to their experience with computer flight simulators. They managed to take off, and were able to control it in the air just fine, but the touchdown was pretty rough. After they screeched to a stop Bob turned to Bill and said, “Boy, that’s a short runway!”


“Yes,” Bill agreed, “but look how wide it is!”
