MAC Airlines
All captains, flight attendants, baggage handlers and ticket agents look and act the same. Each time you ask questions about details, you are gently but firmly told you don't need to know, don't want to know, and everything will be done for you without your ever having to know, so just shut up.

DOS Airlines
Everyone pushes the plane until it glides. They then jump on and let the plane coast until it hits the ground again. Then they push again, jump on again, and so on.

UNIX Airlines
Everyone brings one piece of the plane along when they come to the airport. They all go out on the runway and put the plane together piece by piece, arguing continually about what kind of plane they are supposed to be building.

Windows Airline
The terminal is very pretty and colorful, with friendly flight attendants, easy baggage check and boarding, and smooth take-off. Approximately ten minutes in the air, the plane explodes with no warning whatsoever.

Windows NT Airways
Similar to Windows Airline, but more expensive, uses much larger planes and takes out all other aircraft within a 35-mile radius when it explodes.

Good stuff, Mark. I liked DOS Airlines the best. Just because I have a perfect idea of what it would look like.

Dan, probably just testing my nerves.
Its fine, John. To answer your question: you may start a joke thread. Just make sure the jokes do not offend anyone.
