The Smartest Man In The World

This has nothing whatever to do with Bigfoot. It is an old joke that I read recently and I still got a laugh out of it. Maybe some of the younger readers haven't heard it .

Kissinger, Nixon, the pope and a hippy are flying over the ocean when suddenly the pilot emerges from the cockpit announcing “The engines have conked out and we are going to crash. Unfortunately, there are only four parachutes and as the pilot, I’m taking one.” He puts on a chute, opens the door and jumps.

Nixon then declares: As President of the United States, I’m the most important man in the world and I have a responsibility to survive.”, grabs a chute and jumps.

Then Kissinger declares: “As the smartest man in the world, it would make no sense for me to die needlessly.”, grabs a chute and jumps.

Then the pope turns to the hippy and tells him “I’m a very old man. You are still young and have a long future ahead of you. Take the last chute, my son, and save yourself.”

The hippy turns to the pope: “It’s cool man. The smartest man in the world just jumped out with my backpack. Grab the other chute and let’s go!”

About Me

My photo
I've lived in the woods and came to know and understand the creatures that inhabit it. I have compassion for all God's creatures, most especially the creature known whimsically as "bigfoot", since he is more like us than any other. I am now an old man and unable to run around in the woods. If I were able I would be out there right now trying to prove his existence. I started this blog to try to express some of the ideas and speculations I have had on bigfoot. I am not into bigfoot social events. I don't gossip about other bloggers. I try to keep myself informed of events. My ideas and opinions are my own and I make no apology for them. They are not written in stone and I welcome any and all civil comments. I am looking for the truth, not fame.
