A World War II Royal Air Force pilot is reminiscing before school children about his days in the air force. âIn 1942,â he says, âthe situation was really tough. The Germans had a very strong air force. I remember, â he continues, âone day I was protecting the bombers and suddenly, out of the clouds, these fokkers appeared. (At this point, several of the children giggle.) âI looked up, and right above me was one of them. I aimed at him and shot him down. They were swarming. I immediately realized that there was another fokker behind me.â At this instant the girls in the auditorium start to giggle and boys start to laugh. The teacher stands up and says, âI think I should point out that âFokkerâ was the name of the German-Dutch aircraft company.â âThatâs true,â says the pilot, âbut these fokkers were flying Messerschmitts.â Sandy was drinking at a pub all night. When he got up to leave, he fell flat on his face. He tried to stand again, but to no avail, falling flat on his face. He decided to crawl outside and get some fresh air to see whether that would sober him up. Once outside, he stood up and, sure enough, fell flat on his face. So, being a practical Scot, he crawled all the way home. When he got to the door, he stood up yet again, but fell flat on his face. He crawled through the door into his bedroom. When he reached his bed, he tried once more to stand upright. This time he managed to pull himself to his feet but fell into bed. He was sound asleep as soon as his head hit the pillow. He woke the next morning to his wife shaking him and shouting, "So, ye've been oot drinkin' as usual!" "Why would ye say that?" he complained innocently. "Because the pub called an' ye left yer wheelchair there again!" I just found out my oldest and closest friend Gavin has passed away. Overdosed on indigestion medicine. I just can't believe it - Gav is gone.
