Planes, No Trains, and Automobiles

Clown Coffee: See, there was a plane crash in Venezuela. That makes three plane crashes this week, which debunks your whole "flying is so much safer" theory.
Worker #3116: Well how many car accidents are there in a week?
Clown Coffee: Who cares?

Worker #3116: Clown, look here. 115 people die in car accidents every day, in the United States alone.
Clown Coffee: Baloney.
Worker #3116: There were 6,328,000 car accidents in 2003. Just in the U.S. There are cars all over the world!
Clown Coffee: Yeah, but how many millions of plane crashes were there?
Worker #3116: Millions?
Clown Coffee: Yeah.
Worker #3116: ...
Clown Coffee: ...
Worker #3116: Ha ha.
Clown Coffee: Ha ha.
