Props to American Flyers for the joke.

NOTE: For non-airplane geeks, APU = Auxiliary Power Unit. This is basically a small, fuel powered generator that is not part of the main, propulsion based power plant. It's used to spin up some turbine engines, and to provide electric or hydraulic power in various situations (some normal, some not).

Tower: Airline XXX, it looks like one of your baggage doors is open.
Captain: (Scans FE panel) Ah, thanks tower, but you must be looking at our APU door.
Tower: Okay, Airline XXX, cleared for takeoff.
Captain: Cleared for takeoff, Airline XXX

During takeoff roll...
Tower: Airline XXX, Ahhh... It appears that your APU is leaking luggage...

here's one I like:
Control tower to a 747: "United 329 heavy, your traffic is a Fokker, one o'clock, three miles, Eastbound."
United 329: "Approach, I've always wanted to say this... I've got the little Fokker in sight."

Hah... Yah, that's a good one... or this one

A Beech Baron was taxiing at LAX back in the sixties and encountered one of the (then) new 747's.

Both pilot and co- were all eyes as both aircraft approached the same intersection.

Baron: Uh, ATC, verify you want me to taxi in front of the 747.

ATC: Yeah, it's OK. He's not hungry.
