All he was asked to do was count the blades, too much like counting sheep by the look of it.

The sound of the whirling blades reminded Sledge of his Mum's Cake Mixer and how he got to lick the blades.....sadly he was about to become the makings of a Meat Pie.

As a redneck, Bubba was used to road-kill stew, he wondered if air-kill pigeon pie tasted any sweeter: I guess he will never find out.

After the demands of the National Curriculum that maths should "become more like real life",other school subjects follow, and gym equipment is redesigned.

Here a student is lifting his chest off the floor by stretching his hands towards his feet.

Note how the hi-viz jacket and heavy-duty trousers and boots are more realistic than traditional gym kit.

Zen and the art of motorcycle maintenance did not seem to adapt very well to jet engine work.

And Joe's Tai Chi positions were never going to get him out of the air intake again.

Perhaps he should try some yogic flying with reverse thrust?

....now if this photo was paired with the one of the bloke peering down the tailpipe...

Tailpipe "Can you see it?"
Fanblade "Nope...not yet...shine your torch a little to the left"
Tailpipe "OK......is that any better?"
Fanblade "Erm...nope...I still can't find my toasted cheese sandwich"
Tailpipe "Well how long did you cook it for?"
Fanblade "Oh about 45 seconds"
Tailpipe "Well there you go then...it will be ashes by now and blown out the back here....try again and cook for 10 seconds next time"

Lowly "other ranks" assume the correct position as the Captain does his rounds.
