Alright - on the lighter side

During the Mexican American War, an intense long standoff occurred along the front. For days and days neither side made any advances.
Finally, an American general had a bright idea. He aimed his rifle to the Mexican trenches and yelled, "Hey, Juan!"
A soldier jumped up and replied, "What?" The general shot him dead. This continued for three days.
A Mexican general decided that two could play this game and decided to try it out. He called out, "Hey, John!"
An American replied, "John isn't here. Is that you Juan?"
The Mexican general stood up, "Yeah" . . .

OK... I will add one.....

A (insert nationality here) airplane was landing a Dulles International airport outside of DC...

It was his first time landing in the U.S. so he was apprehensive but, having many hours in the air he knew that everything would be alright......

Now, as you know, most civilian aircraft approach at 10 miles out and ten miles up.....(so to speak.. bear with me)...

and his co-pilot would speak out the altitude and distance while he concentrated on the landing.....8 miles 8000 feet.......6 miles 60000 feet etc etc etc....

every was looking good.....and just as the wheels started to touch down !!

The pilot hits the warning lights and the oxygen masks drop down and the stewards inform the passengers to "assume the position"....and all hell breaks out in the passenger compartment...

the pilot gets all the wheels down and the the plane begins to go off the tarmac and into the dirt....

as he attempts to brake to a halt.... the right engine breaks off and flies over the plane to the left... the plane is kicking up dirt and chunks of grass and tearing up hundreds of feet of the ground as it goes......

and then the left engine falls off....

after a few seconds the plane comes to a halt... the steward are assisting everyone out of the plane and the navigator says that there is no fire and that all systems are shut down....

The pilot is fit to be tied!! he is PISSED!!!!!

"THESE DAMN AMERICANS... WHY WOULD THEY MAKE SUCH A SHORT RUNWAY???" and with that slams his headsets into the floor of the cabin.....

"yes".. the co-pilot offers.."it may be short... but they made it two miles wide!!"
