Happy Wednesday! We are half way through the work week, so here is a bit of homeland security/TSA humor to help get us through today and a bit closer to the weekend. Enjoy!
A New York fireman, an American mother of three, and a TSA supervisor are the only survivors of a plane crash in the Pacific Ocean. They all wash up on a desert island where, half drowned, the fireman spots a lamp in the sand. As soon as he touches it, a genie emerges in a cloud of smoke.
“I am the Genie of the Lamp,” he intones. “Because you have released me, I will grant you each one wish.”
The mother breaks into tears. “Oh, thank you, thank you!” she cries. “I just want to fly back home to my babies!”
“Very well,” says the genie, and a pontoon plane appears by the shore, its pilot beckoning to her. Happily she runs off and climbs aboard.
“All I want,” says the fireman, “is to return to my fire station in New York. People there rely on me to help them in times of trouble.”
“Very well,” intones the genie, and another plane pops out of nowhere to idle next to the first. The fireman runs out and climbs aboard.
“And what is your wish?” the genie asks the TSA supervisor.
“Get those people back here. They haven’t been properly searched!”
