An airplane was about to crash; there were 5 passengers on board, but
only 4 parachutes.
The first passenger said, "I am President Obama, the chosen one. The
world needs me, I can't afford to die." So he took the first parachute
and left the plane.
The second passenger, Nancy Pelosi, said, "I am the Speaker of the
House. And I am the smartest woman in American history, so America 's
people don't want me to die." She took the second parachute and jumped
out of the plane.
The third passenger, John Kerry, said, "I'm a Senator, and a decorated
war hero from the Navy of the United States of America ." So he
grabbed the parachute next to him and jumped.
The fourth passenger, ex-President George W. Bush, said to the fifth
passenger, a 10-year-old schoolgirl, "I have lived a full life, and
served my country the best I could. I will sacrifice my life and let
you have the last parachute."
The little girl said, "That's okay, Mr. President. There's a parachute
left for you. America 's smartest woman took my school bag."
