The smartest man in the world…
Donald Trump, Boris Johnson, Angela Merkel, Pope Francis and a ten-year-old schoolgirl are on a plane that is going down. There are only four parachutes.
Johnson declares, “Britain can’t survive Brexit without me,” and grabs one and jumps.
The Pope declares, “More than a billion Catholics need me,” and grabs one and jumps.
Trump declares, “I know more about our defences than the generals, I know more about the pandemic than the doctors, I’m the smartest person in the world and my country needs me.” He grabs the nearest pack and jumps.
Merkel looks at the young girl and says, “You take the last one, you have a whole life ahead of you.”
The girl replies, “It’s OK, there’s two parachutes left, the smartest man in the world took my backpack.”
