Patrick and Jim were a couple of drinking buddies who happened to work as aircraft mechanics at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport in Atlanta.
One day, the airport was surrounded by thick fog, not a single aircraft was able to take off or land and the fog was so bad that aircraft couldn’t be safely brought into the hangars for repairs. As a result, they were stuck in the hangar all day with nothing to do.
Patrick said, “Man, I really wish we had something to drink!”
Jim replied, “Me too Patrick”.
Jim thought for a minute, then had an idea.
“You know what Patrick”, her said, “I have heard that you can drink jet fuel and get a buzz. Do you want to try it?”
Patrick agreed and so they poured themselves a couple of glasses of high octane jet fuel. It wasn’t long before they were completely wasted.
The next morning, Patrick woke up and he was surprised at how good he felt.
In fact he felt GREAT! NO hangover! NO bad side effects. Nothing! Given the state that he was in after drinking the jet fuel, it was nothing short of a miracle.
Just then the phone rang… It was Jim.
Jim said, “Hey, how do you feel this morning Patrick?”
Patrick replied, “I feel great. How about you?”
Jim said, “Yeah, I feel great, too”.
“You don’t have a hangover then?” Jim asked.
Patrick replied, “No, not even the slightest one. That jet fuel really is great stuff. No hangover, nothing. We ought to do this more often”.
“Yeah”, Jim said, “we should, however there’s just one thing…”
“What’s that?” Patrick asked.
“Have you farted yet?” asked Jim.
Patrick replied, “No, why?”
Jim said: “Well, DON’T, ’cause I’m in PHOENIX!!!”
