OK, that 15 entries, so I think we can call it now. My own would have been

"Tower to flight 137, you appear to have an unauthorised passenger on board, immigration would like a word with him".


Honorable mention - -Mark S -(Pilot to copilot)....
"Oh gawd, George. I think we just made the top of the 'naughty' list."

3rd place - Rob Smith - Do you know how many C17 we are going to have to scramble to cover for that one sleigh???

2nd place - Stepen Meyer - "As you disembark, this is your captain thanking you for flying the friendly skys ... and please disregard the man in a red suit on the nose. It was really just a weather balloon."

1st place - Michael Roberts - "I think we need more work on this "Red Nose Day" idea."

Which particularly resonates here in the UK with our real one. Well done to all of you, that was a good set of entries.

Well this is a difficult round to judge. I will do that now as I will be away for a day or so. Well done for all the excellent entries.

3rd equal:
Monday with: Something is going to happen...I can feel it in my bones.
Astria Starwynd with: We really need a second bathroom.

2nd:
Rob Smith:
Is that the time already!! - I must dash, I'm on the graveyard shift...

And the winner is:
Steven Meyer, a beautifully constructed entry with effective use of repetition:
"I need to go to the powder room.", she said.
"I'll just be a minute.", she said.


I would probably have recycled an old joke:
"Waiter!! A pint of beer and a mop, please!"

PM on its way.
