A fighter pilot was escorting a B-52 overseas, and was thoroughly bored with flying straight, and level, for extended periods of time.... so, to add a little more interest to the trip, he started doing loops, rolls, and basically flying circles around the bomber. After getting on the radio, and deriding the bomber pilots for flying what amounts to a big truck...... the bomber pilot got on the radio, and told the fighter pilot:
I just did something that you could never even consider doing.
The fighter pilot didn't see anything different happening, the bomber was still flying straight, and level.... So he asked the bomber pilot:
Really? And just what is it you just did?
Bomber pilot comes back:
I just shut down two engines.
