    The Pilots One day at a busy airport, the passengers on a
    commercial airliner are seated, waiting for the cockpit crew to show
    up so they can get under way. The pilot and co pilot finally appear in
    the rear of the plane, and begin walking up to the cockpit through the
    center aisle. Both appear to be blind. The pilot is using a white
    cane, bumping into passengers right and left as he stumbles down the
    aisle, and the co pilot is using a guide dog. Both have their eyes
    covered with huge sunglasses.
    At first the passengers do not react; thinking that it must be some
    sort of practical joke. However, after a few minutes the engines start
    spooling up and the airplane starts moving down the runway. The
    passengers look at each other with some uneasiness, whispering among
    themselves and looking desperately to the stewardesses for
    Then the airplane starts accelerating rapidly and people begin
    panicking. Some passengers are praying, and as the plane gets closer
    and closer to the end of the runway, the voices are becoming more and
    more hysterical.
    Finally, when the airplane has less than 20 feet of runway left, there
    is a sudden change in the pitch of the shouts as everyone screams at
    once, and at the very last moment the airplane lifts off and is
    Up in the cockpit, the co pilot breathes a sigh of relief and turns to
    the Captain: "You know, one of these days the passengers aren't going
    to scream, and we're gonna get killed!"
