A hitchhiker, George W. Bush, and a pilot were flying through some rough weather. All through the flight, Bush kept telling the hitchhiker how smart he was, almost as though he were the smartest man in the world. ON and on, boring the pilot and hitchhiker nearly to sleep.
Suddenly, a bolt of lightning hit the plane, and one of the engines began to fail. The pilot exclaimed that they only had 2 parchutes for the flight, and Bush grabbed a pack, fastened it to his back, and said, "My mind is too important for me to die now!" He jumped out of the plane and was whisked behind it.
The pilot looked at the hitchhiker and said that he really didn't want to die, but it was his duty to go down with the plane if someone had to do it.
"Don't worry about it, my man," said the hitchhiker. "The smartest man in the world just jumped out with my backpack."
