The smartest people in the world

Little Angel (stained glass) :: All Pretty Things
A doctor, a lawyer, a little boy, and a priest were out for a Sunday afternoon flight on a small private plane. Suddenly, the plane developed engine trouble. In spite of the best efforts of the pilot, the plane started to go down. Finally, the pilot grabbed a parachute, yelled to the passengers that they had better jump, and then he bailed out.

Unfortunately, there were only three parachutes remaining. The doctor grabbed one and said "I'm a doctor, I save lives, so I must live," and jumped out.

The lawyer then said, "I'm a lawyer and lawyers are the smartest people in the world. I deserve to live." He also grabbed a parachute and jumped.

The priest looked at the little boy and said, "My son, I've lived a long and full life. You are young and have your whole life ahead of you. Take the last parachute and live in peace."

The little boy handed the parachute back to the priest and said, "Not to worry, Father. The 'smartest man in the world' just took off with my back pack."

  1. LOL my oldest was supposed to become one of those "smartest men in the world"... so glad he changed his mind. This was a great chuckle.

    1. Glad you found it funny! And even happier your oldest chose another type of work - nthing against 'the smartest people', but if they have a heart and a conscience, their stress level will probably bring them down. It's hard to be hated by virtually everyone.

  2. Ştii zicala: " Prostul, până nu-i fudul / parcă nu e prost destul " !
