One day at a busy airport, the passengers on a commercial airliner are all seated, waiting for the cockpit crew to show up so they can get under way. The pilot and copilot finally appear in the rear of the plane, and begin walking up to the cockpit along the center aisle. Both appear to be blind. The pilot is using a white cane, bumping into passengers left and right as he stumbles down the aisle, and the copilot is using a guide dog. Both are wearing huge sunglasses to cover their eyes. at first the passengers do not react, thinking that it must be some sort of practical joke. After a few minutes the engines start revving and the airplane starts moving down the runway. The passengers look at each other with some uneasiness. They start whispering among themselves and desperately look to the flight attendants for reassurance. Then, the airplane starts accelerating rapidly and the passengers begin panicking. Some passengers are praying, and as the plane gets closer and closer to the end of the runway, the voices are becoming more and more hysterical. When the airplane has less than 20 feet of runway left,there is a sudden change in the pitch of the shouts as everyone screams all at once. At the very last moment the airplane lifts off and is airborne. All the passengers breath a sign of relief and laugh nervously at their fears. In the cockpit, the copilot turns to the pilot and says: "You know, one of these days the passengers aren't going to scream, and we're all gonna get killed!"
