A US army 2nd Lt is making his first jump. He exits the aircraft and his static line fails to deploy his chute, he calmly pulls his reserve, and nothing happens. The young Lt panics as he realizes he didn’t pay enough attention to his instructors.
As he is falling he sees a shape coming at him from the ground. As it gets closer he sees that it is a man. It is the BN mess Officer! The young Lt yells “Sir do you know anything about parachutes???”
The mess officer yelled back “NO! Do you know anything about gas stoves???”
