A Presidential Joke

This one is an oldie, but a goodie.

5 Passengers, 4 Parachutes:
A plane is about to crash. There are 5 passengers, but only 4 parachutes.
The first passenger is Rush Limbaugh. He says, "I am the voice of the Conservatives. If I die, who will speak for them?" and grabs the first parachute and jumps out of the plane.

The second passenger is Hillary Clinton. She says "I am the wife of a former United States president. I'm a senator for the state of New York, and I have a good chance of being our next president." She grabs a parachute and jumps out of the plane.

The third passenger is George W. Bush. He says "I'm the president of the United States of America. I have huge responsibilities in the world. Besides, I'm the smartest president in the history of my country and can't possibly shun my responsibility to my people by dying." He grabs a pack and jumps out of the plane.

The fourth passenger, the Pope, says to the fifth passenger, a young school boy, "I am old. I've lived my life as a good person, as a priest should, and so I shall leave the last parachute to you. You have the rest of your life ahead of you."

To this, the little boy says, "Don't fret, old man. There's a parachute for each of us. The smartest president in the history of the US took my backpack!"

bwah hahaha love it.

It reminds of the idiotic assignment we had to do in 7th or eight grade like an argument between 3 people in a life boat and who should get the life vest. naturally, I pick gandhi as the famous person I want to be, and instantly realise that I cannot argue because gandhi would just give the lifevest to someone else.

how i must have exasperated my english teacher, but how she exasperated me with these inane assignments.
