A United Airlines 747 captain on a flight from Los Angeles to Sydney tries to make light banter with the Sydney Approach Controller ...
Captain: "Good morning, Sydney, this is United 539, we're 50 miles out and have your island in sight. Can you please let us have joining and landing instructions..."
Approach Control: "Roger, United 539 you're cleared to circle the island twice, then it's okay to land."
Could you please explain why this is funny? :p
It's because Aussies don't like people calling their continent an island, no? :)
No, we call it an island too.
It's funny, coz our island is pretty fucking big! :)
Last night I saw for the first time an episode of the Simpsons where they go to Australia. "Bart vs. Australia" I reckon. It pretty funny! :)
