Barack Obama, the Pope, a professional football player, and a Boy Scout were traveling on a small plane when it experienced difficulties. Suddenly the pilot ad copilot came rushing out of the cockpit...
"The plane is going to crash. We are getting out of here." and immediately parachuted out of the plane.
The passengers looked around and found only three parachutes. Suddenly, they were alarmed...four people and only three parachutes.
The football player grabbed one of the parachutes and said, "My team needs me to win games and I need to get all those endorsements." With that he parachutes out of the plane to safety.
The three remaining passengers; Obama, the Pope and the Boy Scout look at each other when suddenly Obama exclaims, "I am the intellectual leader of the free world. Because I am so smart the world cannot survive without me." He then grabs a parachute and jumps out of the airplane.
The Pope looks sadly at the Boy Scout and says, "Child I have lived a long life, Your life is still ahead of you. Take the last parachute and save yourself."
The Boy Scout just grinned and said, Don't worry about it, Holy Father. there are two parachutes left...Obama, the intellectual leader of the free world just jumped out of the plane with my knapsack!"
