I was on a Reno Air flight from San Jose to Las Vegas and the
plane was taxiing to take off. The flight attendant came on the
intercom and said, "For those of you currently reading our in-
flight magazine, please place it back in the seat pocket in front
of you, as it is for IN-FLIGHT only." Later on, once we were
airborne, he came back and said, "If you're sitting on the right
side of the plane, look out the window and you will see big,

by the fly of their pants!"
