    My favorite safety record is “The Safety Dance” by Men Without Hats.
    :
    Sing along with Sherlock: “We can dance if we want to, we can leave your friends behind…”

    “Our airline has never lost a plane.’
    ‘Really?’
    ‘Yes… we know where each and every piece of wreckage is.’
    (That might have been Carol Burnett… I’m not sure.)

    We have a 100% success rate. Every person we take up gets down.

    He’s wearing googles ah goggles… something like that.

    “Rat’s Parachute School…Good to the Last Drop!”

    @twonky

    Are you thinking of the “Mrs. Grace L.Ferguson Airline and Storm Door Company”?

    No room for “so-so” in a “one chance only” sport. A chutist must be able to have absolute trust in his packer; Rat’s parachute school seems doomed to failure in more ways than one.

    I successfully completed basic parachutist’s school in Ft. Benning. One day a Black Hat (instructor) sang us a little ditty to the tune of “We Wish You a Merry Christmas:”

    “We wish you a malfunction
    we wish you a malfunction
    we wish you a malfunction
    and a faulty reserve.”

    And there’s the humor in some of the running cadences they sing, such as if their main and reserve chutes malfunction that they would be first to the countryside. That was, for me, and easy and fun course. It amazed me as to how many students they could weed out in the first week using simple harassment.

    Every successful landing is just a controlled crash into the ground.

    We packed our own parachutes once we had been trained and authorised.

    Rat’s always had a jaundiced view.
