HA! Those are hilarious! You don't need to worry about getting in trouble if you file a PIREP like that? I think I may have some new phrasology comming for future PIREPS...

This isn't exactly a PIREP but it was in the remarks section of an ATIS at MHT a few years ago. My friend wrote it down and I'm just going to guess the vis. and clouds from memory, they're approximate:

I just thought of another one I saw on the WSI computer once. My instructor and I were standing there looking at the PIREPs because it was pretty bumpy that afternoon and we were trying to decide if going up was going to be worth it or a waste of time. We made the decision to not fly when we came across one with the remarks of

WORST DAY IN 40 YEARS OF FLYING

I heard ATC ask a GA pilot how his ride was since he was in an area of TRW and he replied "well, I'm not sorry yet".

I made a pirep once for moderate turbulence while flying a seminole. I asked the controller to add the remark "ouch" (and was laughed at) and then proceeded to explain that I just hit my head on the ceiling. I dropped the seat height a little after that.
