Startled, Santa asks the man, "Seriously? You're gonna rob ME on Christmas Eve?"
"Sorry to give you a fright, sir", the man replies. "I'm Bill from the FAA. The powers that be decided earlier this year that you must be subject to an annual check ride so that we can certify your airworthiness and emergency handling procedures."
Santa, looking a bit puzzled, asks Fred, "Well, OK, but what's with the .30-06?"
Fred leans in and whispers, "Well, I'm not supposed to tell you, but you're gonna lose one on take-off."
