    F16 Vs. C-130

    A C-130 was lumbering along when a cocky F-16 flashed by.
    The jet jockey decided to show off.

    The fighter jock told the C-130 pilot, 'watch this!' and promptly
    Went into a barrel roll followed by a steep climb. He then finished
    With a sonic boom as he broke the sound barrier. The F-16 pilot
    Asked the C-130 pilot what he thought of that?

    The C-130 pilot said, 'That was impressive, but watch this!'
    The C-130 droned along for about 5 minutes and then the C-130
    Pilot came back on and said: 'What did you think of that?'
    Puzzled, the F-16 pilot asked, 'What the heck did you do?'
    The C-130 pilot chuckled. 'I stood up, stretched my legs,walked
    To the back, took a leak, then got a cup of coffee and a
    cinnamon roll.'

    The moral of the story is....

    When you are young and foolish -
    Speed and flash may seem a good thing!

    When you get older and smarter -
    Comfort and dull is not such a bad thing!

    We older folks understand this one
    Have a Nice Day
