Flight under the control of Jewish Captain, & co-pilot who is Chinese (Cute one from a Jewish buddy… in case you had never heard it!!!!)

An Air Canada plane leaves Pearson Airport under the control of a Jewish captain; his co-pilot is Chinese. It's the first time they've flown together and an awkward silence between the two seems to indicate a mutual dislike.

Once they reach cruising altitude, the Jewish captain activates the auto-pilot, leans back in his seat, and mutters, “I don't like Chinese…”

'No rike Chinese ?' asks the co-pilot, 'why not ?'

'You people bombed Pearl Harbor , that's why !'

'No, no', the co-pilot protests, 'Chinese not bomb Peahl Hahbah ! That Japanese, not Chinese.'

'Japanese, Chinese, Vietnamese... doesn't matter, you're all alike!'

There's a few minutes of silence. 'I no rike Jews !' the co-pilot suddenly announces.

'Oh yeah, why not ?' asks the captain.

'Jews sink Titanic !' says the co-pilot.

“What? You're insane! Jews didn't sink the Titanic !” exclaims the captain, “It was an iceberg !”

“Iceberg, Goldberg, Greenberg, Rosenberg... all same”
