Overheard in IFR Magazine's "On the Air"

My airplane partner and I were on a short night hop from Lawrence, Massachusetts to Nashua, New Hampshire and had just switched to Nashua tower when we heard the following:

Mooney:
"We need to return and land."

Tower:
"What's the nature of your problem?"

Mooney:
"Every time my student touches the throttle, he gets electrocuted."

Unidentified Voice:
"That's a good training technique."
