Seems almost delusional to me, but whatever, the guy was fine to fly with otherwise!
Flew with a captain once, who, on take off let out a loud "UH OH!".

After sucking the wheels up, I asked what on earth was wrong, wondering what it could possibly be since everything appeared normal.

"The EGT was at 666!!" Dude was serious.

Every chance I got I tried to get that EGT back at 666 just to drive him nuts.

It was a lot funnier single seat, but I used to always say "I don't like the way that looks" right as I started rolling for takeoff. Figured if something happened and I morted the accident board would drive itself insane trying to figure out wtf I was talking about.

One of the Apollo astronauts revealed a radio prank from the Moon that they decided not to pull, by transmitting: “Uh-oh, what’s that thing? It’s coming this way! Aieeee!” ....... then silence.

And here I thought it was, “The little green men have us surrounded and are saying, ‘Take us to your leader.’”

That reminds me of a story from years ago:

727 Captain tells the S/O, "When we're cleared for takeoff, I want you to raise your desk lid up and hold it until I rotate the plane, then drop it. Don't say a word."

S/O asks, "Why?"

Captain: "If we crash, it'll take 'em forever to figure out what that noise was."

Poor pilots. They think the NTSB is too stupid to figure out the noises the pilots themselves choose to make. Rest assured, they will. And it will be embarrassing. Aircraft crashed with a probable cause [blah blah]. “Contributing to the accident was the early onset of Tourette Syndrome for the Captain which caused numerous foot stomping on the cockpit floor prior to takeoff..”
