Two rookie pilots are piloting a plane, when they discover that they must make an emergency landing. Luckily enough, there is a nearby abandoned airstrip, so they decide to land there.
As they fly over it, one says, "That's an awfully short runway; I don't know if we can land on it." The other points out that there's no choice, -- they have to try.
They bring the plane in as slowly as possible, touching wheels right at the beginning of the runway, and immediately hit the brakes. The plane slides to a halt with the front wheels hanging off the runway's end. One turns to the other and says, "We made it, but this is the shortest runway I've ever seen!" The other says, "Yeah, but it must be at least two miles wide."
