Mismatch.

The FAA has a device for testing the strength of windshields on airplanes.
They point the device at the windshield of the aircraft and shoot a dead turkey, at about the speed the aircraft flies. If the windsheild doesn't break, it's likely to survive a real collision with a bird during flight.

Engineers had recently built a new locomotive that could pull a train faster than any before it. They were not sure if the windsheild was strong enough, so they borrowed the testing device from the FAA.

The Engineers reset the device to the maximum speed of the locomotive, loaded the dead turkey, and fired. The bird went through the windshield, broke the engineer's chair, and made a major dent in the back wall of the engine cab.

The engineers were quite surprised with the results, and they asked the FAA to check the test to see if everything was done correctly.


The FAA checked everything, and suggested they might want to repeat the test using a thawed turkey.
