When I wear contact lenses, I keep seeing Russian aircraft flying around in front of my eyes. The doctor said it could be some kind of optical Ilyushins.

Unless you're in Alaska. Then it's an optical Aleutian.

A documentary of life in the cockpit is planned. They'll film the pilot in a couple of months.

That reminds me, I learned the quickest way to get into a stripper's panties is to pick them up off the floor.

Motorists should work together during traffic jams instead of yelling at each other. Cross words should not be unsolvable.

In traffic jams, we should preserve our patience.

Can anybody be cremated, or must they urn the privilege?

If you light up a room with a floor lamp, does that make it a torchier chamber?

The other day, we took my Grandpa to one of those spas where the fish eat your dead flesh. It's a lot cheaper than cremation.
