Christmas Humour

Wed Dec 22, 1999 8:51 pm

I found this in the 'Tales' section of the December issue of Australian Aviation magazine. I found it pretty funny so I thought I'd share it.

'Santa Claus, like all pilots, gets regular visits from the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA).
It was shortly before Christmas when the CASA examiner arrived. In preparation, Santa had the elves wash the sled and bathe all the reindeer. Santa got his logbook out and made sure all his paperwork was in order.
The examiner walked slowly around the sled. He checked the reindeer harnesses, the landing gear, and Roudolf's nose. He painstakingly reviewed Santa's weight and balance calculations for the sled's enormous payload.
Finally they were ready for the checkride. Santa got in and fastened his seat beld and shoulder harness and checked the compass. Then, the examiner hopped in carrying, to Santa's surprise, a shotgun.
"What's that for?" asked Santa incredulously.
The examiner replied, "I'm not really supposed to tell you this, but we have to check your problem solving skills, so you're going to lose an engine on takeoff."'

I saw another one today in a magazine ; it is a humoristic picture with Santa Claus and his elves falling down on flame from the sky and he's calling "Mayday, Mayday, Mayday!" over his radio!
