A pilot, Michael Jordon, Bill Gates, the Pope, and a pizza delivery man were all in a plane together traveling through stormy conditions.
Suddenly, the pilot came running back to the passengers and announced that lightning had hit the plane, and they were going to crash in a matter of minutes. There are only enough parachutes for four of the five of us, he announced. Since I’m the pilot, I get one! After saying this, the pilot grabbed a parachute and jumped out of the plane.
I’m the world’s greatest athlete, proclaimed Michael Jordon. This world needs great athletes, so I must live. Michael Jordon then grabbed a parachute and leaped out of the plane.
I’m the smarest man in the world, bragged Bill Gates. The world needs smart men, so I must also live! Bill Gates grabbed a parachute and jumped out of the plane.
At this point, the Pope began to speak. I have lived a long life compared to you, and you may take the last parachute. I will go down with the plane.
You don’t have to stay here! The world’s smartest man jumped out of the plane with my backpack.
