The Smartest Woman – –


A plane was about to crash with 5 passengers on board, but only 4 parachutes.

The 1st passenger, George W. Bush said, “I’m the President of the United States. I have a great responsibility being the leader of nearly 300 million people.” So he takes the first parachute and jumps out of the plane.

The 2nd passenger said, “I’m Chris Webber, one of the world’s greatest Basketball players, so I can’t afford to die.” So he takes the second parachute and leaves the plane.

The 3rd passenger, Hillary Clinton said “I’m the wife of the former United States President, and a New York Senator, and I’m the smartest woman in the world.” So she takes the third parachute and exits the plane.

The 4th passenger, an old man says to the 5th passenger, a 14 year old boy scout, “I’m old and frail and don’t have many years left, so you take the last parachute”.

The boy scout replied, “It’s OK, there’s a parachute left for you. The world’s smartest woman has just jumped out with my haversack!
