SYDNEY (Aust.) -- The U.S. navies largest floating airport has accidentally run into the Sydney Harbour Bridge. A big chunk fell out.
"We didn't do it," said Captain Krammer K. 'Big Mac' Lotts. "It must have been terrorists," interrupted Fleet Admiral Curtis Lee 'Long John' Travis.
After initial strong denials, the U.S Dept. of the Navy finally admitted that the aircraft carrier had not seen the bridge in the dark. A statement was issued.
"On a goodwill visit to Sydney, the U.S. Navy failed to see the Sydney Harbour Bridge, hit it, then backed off. Some of it fell down. Fatal casualties were limited to a few would-be jumpers contemplating suicide.
"The President has been on the phone to his good friend Mr. Prime Minister of Australia and said the U.S. will give you another one. Your Mr. Prime Minister said -- Oh, goody, goody.
"We'll build it in Arizona, disassemble it, and ship it to Australia. The one you've got now must be pretty old anyway."
"You have to realize we've got a big boat," Fl. Cmdr. Travis said, "didn't we land Air Force One when the President visited us to announce the war in Iraq was over. We can't foresee everything."
