Reminds me of the two QRZ moderators who were flying around in their Cessna when the pilot notices they are low on fuel. Off in the distance he spots a small airport where he can land and top off the tanks. Having never been there, he tells his co-pilot that he might need his help applying the brakes when he lands because the runway looked pretty short.

They touch down and the pilot yells, "NOW!!!" and they both jam their feet on the pedals. The tires smoke as they skid down the runway just barely avoiding running off the runway by mere inches.

The pilot wipes his brow and says, "Man, that is the shortest runway I have ever landed on!"

The co-pilot says, "Yeah, but look at how wide it is!"
