I overheard the following tower transmission after a King Air made a particularly short landing at Metro Airport near Denver. The King Air landed in less than a thousand feet and cleared the runway much earlier than the tower anticipated.

Controller (obviously stunned and in good humor) :
"King Air, would you mind telling the tower exactly what was wrong with the other 9,000 feet of our runway?"
