Smile of the Day

Life is getting much too serious, yes? Who doesn't need a daily smile?

You Are Here. We Are Not.

Late one afternoon, the Air Force folks out at Area 51 in Nevada were startled to see a Cessna landing at their ultra-high-security, super-secret base. They immediately impounded the aircraft and hauled the pilot into an interrogation room. The pilot tried to explain that he had taken off from Las Vegas, gotten lost, and spotted the base just as he was about to run out of fuel. It took all night and a full FBI background check, but finally the base military were convinced that the pilot really had been lost and was not a spy. They gassed up his airplane, gave him one of those "you-did-not-see-a-base" briefings (complete with "rest of your life in prison" threats), gave him the Las Vegas heading, and sent him on his way.

The next day -- to the utter disbelief of everyone on the base -- the same Cessna showed up again.

The MPs surrounded it immediately, and discovered that, this time, there were two people in the small aircraft. The same pilot jumped out, hands in the air, and quickly said: "Do anything you want to me, but my wife is in the airplane and you have to tell her where I was last night."
