A plane was taking off at the airport. Once it had reached a comfortable cruising altitude, the captain made an announcement over the intercom.
"Ladies and gentlemen, this is your captain speaking," he said, "Welcome to Flight Number 293, nonstop from New York to Los Angeles.
"The weather ahead is good and, therefore, we should have a smooth and
uneventful flight. Now sit back and relax.... OH, MY GOD!"
Silence followed, and after a few minutes, the captain came back on the intercom and said, "Ladies and Gentlemen, I am so sorry if I scared you earlier. While I was talking to you, the flight attendant accidentally spilled a cup of hot coffee in my lap.
"You should see the front of my pants!"
A passenger in economy yelled back, "That's nothing. You should see the back of mine!"
