Safe Trip

JOKE OF THE WEEK, 17 July 2017

Dietrich Fischer – TRANSCEND Media Service

A man went to an airline counter to buy a plane ticket.

“How likely is it that there will be a bomb on the plane,” he asked with concern.

“Well,” the lady at the counter said, “these days, there is so much terrorism, you never know, perhaps one percent.”

“And how likely is it that there will be two bombs on the plane?”

“Oh, that almost never happens, you need not be concerned about that,” the lady replied.

“Good,” said the man, “I brought a bomb here, and this one will not go off, so we are safe.”
