Airline mechanics with a sense of humor

This one made me laugh out loud.

Qantas pilots fill out complaint sheets which they give to the mechanics. They fix the problems and return the sheet before the next flight. The pilots have fun flying, so it is only fair that the mechanics have fun filling in the forms.

P = The problem logged by the pilot
S = The solution and action taken by mechanics

P: Test flight OK, except auto-land very rough.
S: Auto-land not installed on this aircraft.
P: Evidence of leak on right main landing gear.
S: Evidence removed.
P: Aircraft handles funny. 
S: Aircraft warned to straighten up, fly right, and be serious.
P: Target radar hums.
S: Reprogrammed target radar with lyrics.
P: Mouse in cockpit.
S: Cat installed.
P: Noise coming from under instrument panel. Sounds like a midget pounding on something with a hammer.
S: Took hammer away from midget
