An aircraft is about to crash. There are five passengers on board, but unfortunately only four 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.”
