Smartest Man in the World

A doctor, a politician, a priest and a little boy were out for a Sunday afternoon flight on a small private plane.  Suddenly, the plane developed engine trouble and the pilot, yelled to the passengers to grab a parachute and jump.  Unfortunately, there were only three!  The doctor grabbed one and said “I’m a doctor, I save lives, so I must live,” and jumped out.  The politician then said, “I’m a politico and politicos are the smartest people in the world. I deserve to live,” so 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.”

Moral: Your job doesn’t always define you, but being a Good Human Being Does.
