A plane was taking off from Kennedy Airport.

After it reached a comfortable cruising altitude, the captain made an announcement over the intercom:

“Ladies and gentlemen, this is your captain speaking.

Welcome to Flight number 293, non-stop 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 business class yelled back,

“That’s nothing. You should see the back of mine!”
