  1. The Royal Air Force Interview
    —————————–

    Before joining the RAF, a chap must have an interview to see if he is suitable. This guy goes into an interview and the interviewer asks “What do aircraft fly in?”

    Chap says “Air”.

    Interviewer asks “What’s that stuff growing on your head?”.

    “Hair,” replies the chap.

    Interviewer asks “What is a lion’s home called?”

    Chap says “Lair.”

    Interviewer: “Now, please could you put those three words together?”

    Chap:”Uh, er, air… hair… lair…”

    Interviewer: “Air hair lair! Welcome to the RAF!”
