There are five passengers on board, but unfortunately only 4 parachutes.
The first passenger says "I'm Shaquille O'Neill, the best NBA basketball
player. The Lakers need me, it would be unfair to them if I died".
So he takes the first parachute and jumps. The second passenger, Hillary
Clinton, says "I am the wife of the former President of the United
States. I am also the most dedicated woman in the world, a Senator in
New York and America's potential future President. She takes one of
the parachutes and jumps.
The third passenger, George W. Bush, says " I am the President
of the United States of America. I have a huge responsibility in world
politics. And apart from that, I am the most intelligent President in
the history of the country and I have a responsibility to my people
not to die". So he takes a parachute and jumps.
The fourth passenger, the Pope, says to the fifth passenger, a ten year
old schoolboy "I am already old. I have already lived my life,
as a good person and a priest I will give you the last parachute".
The boy replies "No problem, there is also a parachute for you.
America's most intelligent President has taken my schoolbag ..."
