Food For Thought For Wednesday, December 7th, 2011


A minister, a boy scout, and a computer executive were the only passengers on a plane.  The pilot came back and said that the plane was going down but there were only three parachutes and four people.

The pilot said, "I should have one because I have a wife and three small children" and he jumped.

The computer executive said, "I should have one of the parachutes because I am the smartest man in the world and they still need me."  He jumped.

The minister turned to the Boy Scout and said with a sad smile "You are young and I have lived a good life, so you take the parachute and I’ll go down with the plane."

The Boy Scout said, "Relax reverend, the smartest man in the world just picked up my knapsack and jumped out of the plane."
