The Airplane Captain

  One day at a busy airport, the passengers on a commercial  airliner are 

  all seated, waiting for the cockpit crew to show up so they can get under 

  way. The pilot and copilot finally appear in the rear of the plane, and 

  begin walking up to the cockpit along the center aisle. Both appear to be 

  blind. The pilot is using a white cane, bumping  into  passengers left and 

  right as he stumbles down the aisle, and the  copilot  is using a guide dog. 

  Both are wearing huge sunglasses to cover their  eyes. at first the passengers 

  do not react, thinking that it must be some sort of practical joke. After 

  a few minutes the engines start revving and the airplane starts moving down 

  the runway. The passengers look at each other with some uneasiness. They 

  start whispering among themselves and desperately look to the flight

  attendants for  reassurance. Then, the airplane starts accelerating rapidly

  and the passengers 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. 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 

  all at once. At the very last moment the airplane lifts off and is airborne. 

   All the passengers breath a sign of relief and laugh nervously at  their 

  fears. In the cockpit, the copilot turns to the pilot and says: "You 

  know, one of these days the passengers aren't going to scream, and we're  

  all gonna get killed!"
