|Santa and Banta, two sky divers having tired of all the ordinary stunts, decided to set a world record by free falling to within 100 feet of the ground before opening their chutes.|
Having jumped from 8000 feet, the two came plummeting toward the earth.
When this altimeter read 100, Banta shouted to Santa, "Now?"
"No, not now!"
"Now?" Banta screamed at 50 feet.
"Come on," Banta shrieked, "it's only ten feet!"
"For God's sake, Banta," Santa yelled, "haven't you ever fallen from ten feet before?"
