The Pilot

  1. A photographer from a well-known national magazine was assigned to cover
    the recent fires. The magazine wanted to show some of the heroic work of
    the firefighters as they battled the blaze. When the photographer
    arrived, he realized that the smoke was so
    thick that it would seriously impede or make it impossible for him to
    photograph anything from ground level.
    He requested permission to rent a plane and take photos from the air.
    His request was approved, and arrangements were made. He was told to
    report to a nearby airport, where a single engine plane would be waiting
    for him. He arrived at the airport and saw a plane warming up near the
    gate. He jumped in with his bag and shouted, "Let's go!" The pilot swung
    the plane into the wind, and within minutes they were in the air. The
    photographer said, "Fly over the park and make two or three low passes so
    I can take some pictures." Each time they made a pass and got closer,
    and even when they could
    feel the heat, the photographer said "one more and get closer"
    Fianally when the photographer said "get down and fly in and out of the
    flames" The extremely nervous pilot asked "Why?" "Because I am a
    photographer for a Time Magazine," he responded,"and I need some
    close-up shots."
    The pilot was silent for a moment; finally he stammered, :uhoh21: "So, you're
    telling me you're not the flight instructor?"

    Boss: "Anal Glaucoma? What's that?"

    Employee: "I just can't see my ass coming to work!"

    Why do I think this is something one our Residents would do?
