ATC Radio Chatter

A few short ones from Moncton ACC over the years...

VMC, pilot has the airport in sight, he's number 2 and been told there will be a delay.
"Are you ready to copy a long and detailed holding clearance, or do you want to do the honourable thing and cancel IFR?"

"ABC123, you best man the stick. There may be a hard turn coming."

Controller to controller conversation...
"I didn't hear a thing that guy said."
"Sounds like a good place for a 'roger'."

Controller to controllers around him after letting a rip-roaring, wet-sounding fart at the sector...
"Pick the bones out of that one!"
... only to find out a ladies group was right behind him on a tour of the facility.
