In a probable everyday situation, David Cameron, Mitt Romney, the Pope and a hippy are on a plane which is destined to crash.
There are, of course, only three parachutes.
Cameron says “Well, I’m Prime Minister of Britain so I must have a parachute”. He grabs a parachute and leaps out.
Romney then says “Well, I’m going to be President of the USA and
Leader of the Free World so I need a parachute”. He leaps out as well.
The Pope turns to the hippy and says “Well my son, I am perhaps nearer to God than you – you take the last parachute”.
To this the hippy replies: “Don’t worry Your Holiness, there are still two parachutes”
- “but how can that be?”
“Romney’s taken my backpack”.
