    Air Canada

    Part of Air Canada's recent settlement with the Unions was hiring
    handicapped people. So, the other day passengers on a small commuter
    plane were waiting for the flight to leave. The entrance opened, and
    two men walked up the aisle, dressed in pilots' uniforms and both
    wearing dark glasses. One pilot was using a seeing-eye dog, and the
    other was tapping his way up the aisle with a white cane.

    Nervous laughter spreads through the cabin; but the men enter the
    cockpit, the door closes, and the engines start up.
    The passengers begin glancing nervously around,
    searching for some sign that this is just a little practical joke.
    None is forthcoming. The plane moves faster and faster down the runway,
    and people at the windows realize that they're headed
    straight for the water at the edge of the airport territory.

    As it begins to look as though the plane will never take off, that it
    will plough into the water, panicked screams fill the cabin.
    At that moment, the plane lifts smoothly into the air.
    The passengers relax and laugh a little sheepishly,
    and soon they have all retreated into their magazines,
    secure in the knowledge that the plane is in good hands.

    Up front in the cockpit, the co-pilot turns to the pilot and says,
    "You know, Bob, one of these days, they're going to scream too late,
    and we're all gonna die."
