Taxiing down the tarmac, the jetliner abruptly stopped, turned around and returned to the gate.
After an hour-long wait, it finally took off.

Bud and Jim were a couple of drinking buddies who worked as airplane mechanics in Atlanta. One day the airport was fogged in and they were stuck in the hangar with nothing to do.
Bud says, ”Man, I wish we had something to drink!” Jim says, ”Me too. Y’know, I’ve heard you can drink jet fuel and get a buzz. You wanna try it?” So they pour themselves a couple of glasses of high octane hooch and get completely smashed.
The next morning Bud wakes up and is surprised at how good he feels. In fact he feels GREAT! NO hangover! NO bad side effects. Nothing! Then the phone rings... It’s Jim.
Jim says, ”Hey, how do you feel this morning?” Bud says, ”I feel great. How about you?” Jim says, ”I feel great, too. You don’t have a hangover?” Bud says, ”No, that jet fuel is great stuff -- no hangover, nothing. We ought to do this more often.” ”Yeah, well there’s just one thing...” ”What’s that?” ”Have you farted yet?” ”No.....”
”Well, DON’T, ’cause I’m in PHOENIX!!!”
A young engineer was leaving the office at 6: 00 pm when he found the CEO standing in front of a shredder with a piece of paper in his hand.
”Listen,” said the CEO, ”This is important, and my secretary has left. Can you make this thing work?”
”Certainly,” said the young engineer. He turned the machine on, inserted the paper, and pressed the start button.
”Excellent, excellent!” said the CEO as his paper disappeared inside the machine. ”I just need one copy.”
A man enters a barber shop for a shave. While the barber is foaming him up, he mentions the problems he has getting a close shave around the cheeks.
”I have just the thing,” says the barber taking a small wooden ball from a nearby drawer. ”Just place this between your cheek and gum.”
The client places the ball in his mouth and the barber proceeds with the closest shave the man has ever experienced. After a few strokes the client asks in garbled speech.
”And what if I swallow it?”
”No problem,” says the barber. ”Just bring it back tomorrow like everyone else does.”
