|A minister, a lawyer, and a boy scout are the only passengers on a small plane that develops engine problems.
The pilot emerges from the cockpit and announces, “Real problems; going down can`t possibly land. We must bail out! But we only have 3 parachutes!"
He reaches into the back of the plane and grabs one of the 3 chutes, announcing,
"I m a married man with 3 kids to support, so I must save myself." Out he bails.
The lawyer then yells, "I have the greatest mind on earth, and the world can`t afford to lose my great intellect." He struggles into the back and grabs for a chute. Out he goes.
The elder minister smiles at the boy scout, "Son, I ve lived much of my life already, so why don`t you....."
"Nothing to worry about, Reverend," interrupts the scout, "the Greatest Mind on Earth just bailed out wearing my backpack!"
