A Friday Joke.

Some things just can't be placed elsewhere. Have you been speeding and got fined? Or spotted a nice new Volvo on the web somewhere? All non-480 messages can be posted in this part of the board.

A Friday Joke.

Irish Airways:

As they approached Dublin number 1 runway, the tower heard:

PILOT - Bjeesus will ya look how fookin shart dat runway is?

CO-PILOT - Yer nat fookin kiddin, Paddy

PILOT - Dis is ganna be one a de trickiest landings ever, Shamus!

CO-PILOT - Yer nat fookin kiddin, Paddy !!

PILOT - Right, Shamus, when I say 'go' put de engine in reverse!!

CO-PILOT - Royt, I'll do dat !!

PILOT - An den ya put de flaps down!!

CO-PILOT - Royt, I'll do dat, too !!

PILOT - An den stamp an de brakes as hard as yer can an pray ta de
Holy Mudder a Gad !!!

CO-PILOT - I'm prayin already, but I'll hit de brakes as hard as I

So, as the wheels hit the ground, Shamus put the engines in reverse,
puts the flaps down, stamped on the brakes and continued to pray to
the Holy Mother with all his soul. The brakes screeched, the tyres
squealed, and there was smoke everywhere, but, to the relief of all
the passengers, and, not least of all, Paddy and Shamus, the aircraft
came to a stop but a few metres from the end of the runway!!!

As Paddy and Shamus sat in the cockpit regaining some composure,
Paddy looked out of the window and said to Shamus, "Dat has gat ta be
De shartist fookin runway in de world!"

Shamus replied, "Yes, but da ya see how fookin wide it is?"
