An exchange overheard between departure control at a Canadian airport and a B727 pilot.
Pilot: Where’s Annule?
Dep. Control: What is it … an intersection or something?
Pilot: I don’t know.
Dep. Control: Where did you see it?
Pilot: On the screens in the terminal. Lots of airlines go there but the flight’s always cancelled.
Dep. Control: (laughter) Welcome to Canada, Monsieur. “Annule” is French for “cancelled.”
Pilot: Ah. Oui, oui.
