Bill Clinton, Al Gore, and George W. Bush were set to face a firing
squad in a small Central American country. Bill Clinton was the first
one placed against the wall and just before the order to shoot him was
given, he yelled out, “Earthquake!”
The firing squad fell into a panic and Bill jumped over the wall and
escaped in the confusion.
Al Gore was the second one placed against the wall. The squad was
reassembled and Al pondered what his old boss had done. Before the
order to shoot was given, Al yelled out, “Tornado!” Again the squad
fell apart and Al slipped over the wall.
The last person, George W. Bush, was placed against the wall. He was
thinking “I see the pattern here, just scream out a disaster and hop
over the wall.”
As the firing squad was reassembled and the rifles raised in his
direction, he grinned and yelled, “Fire!”
I love it.
