Losing Engines

As heard on the Good Stuff with Jim Thompson

 Fifteen minutes into the flight from Kansas City to
Toronto, the captain announced, "Ladies and
gentlemen, one of our engines has failed. There is
nothing to worry about. Our flight will take an
hour longer than scheduled, but we still have
three engines left."Thirty minutes later the captain announced, "One
more engine has failed and the flight will take an
additional two hours. But don't worry ... we can fly
just fine on two engines."

An hour later  the captain  announced, "One more
engine has failed and our arrival will be delayed another three hours.
But don't worry ... we still have  one engine left."

A young blonde passenger turned to the man in
the next seat and remarked, "If we lose one more
engine, we'll be up here all day!"
