An airplane was about to crash. There were 5
passengers on board, but only 4 parachutes. The first
passenger said, "I'm Kobe Bryant, the best NBA
Basketball player, the Lakers need me, I can't afford
to die." So he took the first pack and left the plane.
The second, Ted Kennedy, said, "I'm Senator of the
United States, I have a great responsibility being a
leader of this nation. So America's people won't let
me die". With that he put on a pack and jumped.
The Third passenger, a UNC* grad, said, I am the
mayor of Chapel Hill and my city couldn't survive
without me. After all - I might be the cleverest mayor
in the history of that great city. Quickly he grabbed
the pack next to him and jumped out of the plane.
The fourth passenger, an elderly man, says to the
fifth passenger, a 10 year-old school boy, "I amold and frail and I don't have many years left, as agood citizen I will sacrifice my life and let you havethe last parachute."
The boy said, "It's Ok, there's a parachute left foryou. The cleverest mayor ever has taken my schoolbackpack." ________
