This took place back when planes still flew with cockpit doors open and the general mood of flying was less tense. One day as an airliner was flying over the Rockies the pilot keyed the PA and announced this fact to the passengers in the cabin, but when through with the announcement he forgot to turn the PA off. A few minutes of silence had passed when over the PA the pilots voice cried out OH MY GOD!!! Terror struck into the heart of every passenger and silence ensued as everyone awaited a dreadful fate. A brief moment later the pilots voice came over the PA again in a normal tone and said Sorry about that people. I just spilled coffee on my pants and I forgot the PA was on, you guys should se the front of my pants. Someone from the cabin shouted back And you should see the BACK of mine.
