A Former Marine aviator wanted to show off his new twin-engine plane. His friend was riding along as he put it through its paces. Suddenly, they were caught in a violent thunderstorm, with lightning crashing all around them. Next, they lost the radio and most of the instruments. Then the left engine started coughing.
As they were being tossed around in the sky, pilot said, “Uh-oh!”
Fearing the worst, his friend asked, “What’s wrong now?”
The pilot replied, “I got the hiccups. Do something to scare me.”
