An airplane was about to crash. There were 5
passengers on board, but only 4 parachutes.
The first passenger said, "I am Kobe Bryant, the NBA's best basketball player. I am
about to beat a rape charge and make millions in free agency. I can't afford to die."
So he took the first pack and left the plane.
The second passenger, Hillary Clinton said, "I am the wife of the former U.S
President, a Senator from New York, and a potential future president. And I am the
smartest woman in American history, so America's people don't want me to die." She
took the second pack and jumped out of the plane.
The third passenger, John Kerry, said, " I am my party's nominee for President. I
survived Vietnam and received the Purple Heart. The country needs heroes like me." So
he grabbed the pack next to him and jumped.
The fourth passenger, President George W. Bush, said to the fifth passenger, a 10-year-old
schoolgirl, "I have lived a full life, and served my country well, I will sacrifice
my life and let you have the last parachute."
The girl said, "That's okay. There's still a parachute left for you, Mr. President..
America's smartest woman took my schoolbag."
