Overheard in IFR Magazine's "On the Air"

Palm Beach, Florida approach was busy, as usual. My experience is that they're always 100% business and 0% humor. They must have had a new controller at the mic:

Approach:
"Mooney Three Four November, squawk VFR; frequency change approved."

Mooney 34N:
"Approach, uh, roger and I want to report that your radio has a high pitched whine."

Approach (sarcastically):
"That's because it's scared."

Unknown Third-Party Pilot:
"Hell, we're all scared!"
