Do you think that it's unfair to make jokes about pilots drinking?

So often you hear jokes about them being drunk and flying! Do you think the jokes are unfounded? Below see what was said "You heard about the guy in New Jersey that was arrested for pointing a laser beam at an airliner? It was so unnerving that the pilot had to pour another scotch." - David Letterman xoxoxoxoxoxo

Raydene dear, that's the whole point of the joke, that's what makes it funny. If we take the attitude that jokes are unfair to this group or that group, then there would be no jokes now would there?

to be honest I never heard any jokes about airline pilots drinking before you put up this post. I don't think it is funny and I certainly wouldn't want to think I was boarding a plane with a drunken pilot.

The jokes are legit. They have even fallen asleep while flying.

I do not think that that is a helpful type of joke. It is contributing to the mistrust of the airline business.
