I was in the lineup to depart LAX. A Delta jet was ahead of me and a Short Bros. 360 was ahead of Delta.

Delta (strong southern accent): "Ah, ground control, could you tell us what kind of aircraft is that ahead of us?”

Short Bros. Pilot: "Ah, we are a Short Bros 360.” 

Long silence

Delta: Ahhh OK, did ya all built that yourself?
