    Talking Thursday Laughs

    These jokes are from here
    A helicopter was flying around above Seattle yesterday when an electrical
    malfunction disabled all of the aircraft's electronic navigation and
    communications equipment. Due to the clouds and haze, the pilot could not
    determine the helicopter's position and course to steer to the
    airport. The pilot saw a tall building, flew toward it, circled, drew a
    handwritten sign, and held it in the helicopter's window.
    The pilot's sign said "WHERE AM I?" in large letters. People in the
    tall building quickly responded to the aircraft, drew a large sign, and
    held it in a building window. Their sign said "YOU ARE IN A HELICOPTER."
    The pilot smiled, waved, looked at his map, determined the course to steer
    to SEATAC airport, and landed safely. After they were on the ground, the
    co-pilot asked the pilot how the "YOU ARE IN A HELICOPTER" sign helped
    determine their position.
    The pilot responded "I knew that had to be the MICROSOFT building because,
    similar to their help-lines, they gave me a technically correct but
    completely useless answer."
