“It’s the wrong way ’round!” the Captain yelled.

“Too late to worry now. Like a whiskey, Piper?”
“Would love one, Sir. How much time do we have to drink it?”
The captain looked at his timepiece and softly said, “About two minutes to impact. Drink up!”

“Nah, but thanks for the good time. Call me!”
