And Then I'm At It Again….

Sticky fingered Foggy has been 'out and about' again, foraging the Blogs in the hope of finding something I could loan to save having to do anything remotely original myself and if you think that's just so pitifully lazy, you'd be dead right.

Yet again I wasn't disappointed as I bumped into the story pasted below. Is it an old one? Could be.

With the usual thanks and apologies, in equal measure, to harleyrider1978 in the comments at Frank Davis's site.

  An airplane was about to crash; there were 5 passengers on board, but only 4 parachutes.
   The first passenger, Holly Madison said, “I have my own reality show and I’m the smartest and prettiest woman at Playboy, so Americans don’t want me to die.” She took the first pack and jumped out of the plane.
   The second passenger, John McCain, said, “I’m a senator, and a decorated war hero from an elite navy unit from the United States of America.” So he grabbed the second pack and jumped.
   The third passenger, Barack Obama said, “I’m the President of the United States and I’m the smartest ever in the history of our country. Some even call me the ‘anointed one’.” So he grabbed the pack next to him and jumped out.
   The fourth passenger, Billy Graham, said to the fifth passenger, a 10-year-old schoolgirl, “I have lived a full life and served my God the best I could. I will sacrifice my life and let you have the last parachute.”
The little girl said, “That’s okay Mr Graham. There’s a parachute left for you. America’s smartest President in the history of our country took my schoolbag.”

That is crying out to be translated into something to suit us lot stuck this side of the pond. By anyone but me I hasten to add.
