When there is ever any sort of disaster and lives are at stake, it’s human nature to survive. This usually means saving the women and children before anyone else because they will ensure that the human race endures to live another day. In more modern times, some people can forget this and their own survival becomes more important than anyone else around them. This is the kind of joke that makes you wonder “what in the world is WRONG with some people?!”
A doctor, a lawyer, a little boy and a priest were out for a Sunday afternoon flight on a small private plane. Suddenly, the plane developed engine trouble. In spite of the best efforts of the pilot, the plane started to go down. Finally, the pilot grabbed a parachute and yelled to the passengers that they better jump, and he himself bailed out.
Unfortunately, there were only three parachutes remaining.
The doctor grabbed one and said “I’m a doctor, I save lives, so I must live,” and jumped out.
The lawyer then said, “I’m a lawyer and lawyers are the smartest people in the world. I deserve to live.” He also 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.”
This joke is a classic! Life just has a funny way of working things out. Some people call it “karma,” some people call it the “wheels of justice,” and some might even just blame the entire situation on “bad luck.” Well, whatever you want to call it, it worked out this time! Too funny.
