I agree some of those were funny.  I have one to add that I heard years

This would have been in the early eighties about the time female pilots
were first coming into the military services.  It was common practice to
use the term "Popeye" when you were flying in clouds and Center advised
you on traffic.  It was a quick way of saving. "I am in the clouds and
can't see."

Well, this guy was told by Center of on-coming traffic and responded
that he was "Popeye."  Immediately this female voice came back.  "This
is Olive Oyl and I have been looking for you."
