Dan, I am sure you have received tons of variations on this:

"Hey, that Fokker is flying a Friedrichshafen G.III!"

(Many might have quoted the old joke and said he was "flying a Messerschmidt" but that was a WWII plane and NOT the name of a WWI German aircraft. I love Google.)

Captions for the 1/4/08 cartoon.

1. If you ask me, his outlook is WAY too positive.

2. Hey, buddy, this isn’t the “Friendly Skies” here!

3. He gives a whole new meaning to the phrase “Fly the friendly skies.”

4. I’ll say this for him, he can make a cloudy day seem sunny.

5. Gees, I hate it when he does that!

6. O, that reminds me, my wife wanted me to pick up a pineapple upside down cake on the way home.

7. I’m positive I’ve seen this guy before.

8. I frown upon that kind of behavior.

Bob Tilidetzke
