A C-130 Hercules cargo plane was lumbering along its flight path when a cocky pilot in a single-seat F-16 fighter flashed by. The jet jockey decided he would show off his speed and agility in the air.

The fighter jock called over the radio to the C-130 pilot, “Hey low-and-slow buddy, watch this!” and promptly went into a barrel roll followed by a steep climb in full afterburner. He then finished his little capabilities demonstration with a sonic boom as he broke the sound barrier passing by the C-130 almost at his wingtip.

   The F-16 pilot called back over the radio and asked the C-130 pilot, “What did you think of that?”

   The C-130 pilot said, “That was impressive, but watch this!”

The C-130 droned along for about two more minutes and then the C-130 pilot came back on the radio and said: “Well, What did you think of that?” Puzzled, the F-16 pilot replied, “I don’t know, what did you do?”

   The C-130 pilot chuckled. “I stood up, stretched my legs, walked to the back, went to the bathroom, then got a cup of coffee and a cinnamon bun and now I’m back in the cockpit.”
