A man gets on a plane and finds himself seated next to a sultry redheaded woman.
He immediately turns to her and makes a move, “You know,” he says, “I have heard that flights go quicker if you strike up a conversation with a fellow passenger. So let’s talk.”
The redhead, who had just opened her book, closes it slowly and says to the man “And what would you like to discuss?”
“Oh, I don’t know,” says the man, smiling coyly. “How about nuclear power?”
“All right,” says the redhead. “Could be an interesting topic. But let me ask you something first if you don’t mind . . .”
“Go right ahead” the man smiles thinking he can take anything this redhead hands out.
She continues, “A horse, a cow and a deer all eat the same thing: grass. Yet the deer excretes small pellets, the cow turns out a flat patty and the horse produces muffins of dried poop. Why do you suppose that is?”
The man is dumbfounded. Finally he replies, “You know, that is a great question and I haven’t the slightest idea why.”
“So tell me,” says the redhead, “How is it that you feel qualified to discuss nuclear power with me when you don’t know shit?”
For the remainder of the flight, she happily read Fear Of Flying in peace.
