    There used to be an arrival to Cincinnati with a DRESR intersection. Routine clearance was "NXXXXX, cross DRESR at FL 240".

    As I was coming off OMA one night I heard a guy at Sioux City getting a clearance to Dickinson. Had to look it up on flightaware afterword to be sure.

    A coworker at my old job would order a Guinness, Peroni, Stella, etc... then he would have too much fun when I'd order a Miller. Loudly, very loudly he would say things like:

    You know, for the same price you could order a real beer?

    Does that count as alcohol? Does the eight hour rule even apply if you drink that?

    If you'd like, I could urinate in a frosty glass and save you $5.

    Even if you to to class it up and call it Milwaukee Chardonnay, it still sounds like trash.
