An airplane was about to crash. There were four passengers on board, but only three parachutes. The first passenger said, "I am Steph Curry, the best NBA basketball player. The Warriors and my millions of fans need me, and I can't afford to die." So he took the first pack and left the plane.
     The second passenger, Donald Trump, said, "I am the newly-elected U.S. President, and I am the smartest President in American history, so my people don't want me to die." He took the second pack and jumped out of the plane.
     The third passenger, the Pope, said to the fourth passenger, a 10-year-old schoolboy, "My son, I am old and don't have many years left; you have more years ahead, so I will sacrifice my life and let you have the last parachute."
     The little boy said, "That's okay, Your Holiness — there's a parachute left for you. America's smartest President took my school bag.
