This is a true story of a poor dizzy blonde flying in a two-seater airplane with just the pilot. The pilot has a heart attack and dies. She frantically calls out a Mayday. *Mayday! Mayday! Help me! Help me! My pilot had a heart attack and is dead and I don*t know how to fly. Help me, please, help me!* She hears a voice come over the radio saying: *This is Air Traffic Control and I have you loud and clear. I will talk you through this and get you back on the ground. I have had a lot of experience with this kind of problem. Now, just take a deep breath. Everything will be fine! Now give me your height and position.* She says, *I*m 5'4" and I*m in the front seat.* (pause) *Ok* says the voice on the radio....*Repeat after me: Our father who art in heaven....*

  • A lady lost her handbag in the bustle of Christmas shopping. It was found by an honest little boy and returned to her. Looking in her purse, she commented, "Hmmm.... That's funny. When I lost my bag there was a $20 bill in it. Now there are twenty $1 bills."
    The boy quickly replied, "That's right, lady. The last time I found a lady's purse, she didn't have any change for a reward."
