A musician comes in and says to the salesperson "I'm really fed up; all
the people in the orchestra keep ragging on me and making me feel miserable.
I have decided to give up my instrument.  What can you show me in the way
of an electronic synthesizer?"
    The salesperson asks, "A synthesizer?  Are you, by any chance, a viola
    "Why, yes!", the musician replies.  "How did you know?"
    "It was easy, really.  This is hardware store."


While practising autorotations during a military night training exercise
a Huey Cobra screws up the landing and lands on the tail rotor.  The
landing is so hard that it breaks off the tail boom.  However, the
chopper fortunately remains upright on its skids, sliding down the
runway doing 360s.
    As the Cobra slides past the tower, trailing a brilliant shower of
sparks, this is the radio exchange that takes place...
    Tower: "Sir, do you need any assistance?"
    Cobra: "I don't know, tower; we ain't done crashin' yet."
