“Window or aisle?”/“Window or you’ll what?”

“Aisle” shouldn’t be confused with “I’ll,” but there’s an airplane joke:
 
Airline Check-In Clerk: Window or aisle?
Airline Passenger: Window or you’ll what?

 
The joke was posted on the newsgroup uk.railway on September 26, 2005, and has been credited to English comedian Harry Enfield.
