Aviation gag.

Final trip for Orkney shortest flight pilot

Stuart Linklater has clocked up 1.3 million miles in his Britten-Norman Islander aircraft
A pilot who has completed the world's shortest scheduled flight more than 12,000 times is to take to the skies over Orkney for the last time.
Stuart Linklater, 59, will retire after making his final trip on the route between Westray and Papa Westray.
It takes just two minutes - including taxiing - to complete the 1.7 mile flight, which is about the same length as the runway at Edinburgh Airport. Mr Linklater told The JT :"Frankly, the jet-lag was becoming too much."
