Thread Name: BS: Trump Actions and Effects
Subject: RE: BS: Trump Actions and Effects
I'll just leaven the bread with this little aside, fretting not a jot about its appropriateness:
There is a plane carrying 5 passengers: Nicola Sturgeon, Boris Johnson, Donald Trump, the Pope and a 10-year-old school boy.
The plane begins to go down and is about to crash. There are only 4 parachutes on board.
Nicola Sturgeon says "I have to live, I have the Scottish independence to sort out," and takes a parachute and jumps.
The Pope says "I have to live, I have to sort out the Catholic Church," and takes a parachute and jumps.
Donald Trump says "I have to live, I'm the smartest man in America," and takes a parachute and jumps.
Boris Johnson looks at the 10-year-old school boy and says "You can have the last parachute. I'm a lot older than you and I've lived my life, yours has yet to begin."
The school boy says "Don't worry Mr Johnson. There's two parachutes left. The smartest man in America just took my school bag."
