The Same Enda is Still With Us.

KennyMy intention in starting this blog 6 years ago was so that I could look back at what I was musing about on this day in past years. This day last year I had recorded this little gag:

Enda Kenny,
He's not my favourite person so I like this little gibe about our PM I found on Facebook today:
An airplane was about to crash; there were 5 passengers on board, but only 4 parachutes.

The first passenger said, "I am President Obama, the chosen one. The world needs me, I can't afford to die." So he took the first parachute and left the plane.

The second passenger, Enda Kenny, said, "I am the Prime Minister of Ireland and I am the smartest man in Ireland's history, so Irish people don't want me to die." He took the second parachute and jumped out of the plane.

The third passenger, John Kerry, said, "I'm a Senator, and a decorated war hero from the Army of the United States of America ." So he grabbed the parachute next to him and jumped.

The fourth passenger, ex-President George W. Bush, said to the fifth passenger, a 10-year-old schoolgirl, "I have lived a full life, and served my country the best I could. I will sacrifice my life and let you have the last parachute."

The little girl said, "That's okay, Mr. President. There's a parachute left for you, Ireland's smartest man took my schoolbag."


Big smile and laughter here!
I remember that as a Henry Kissinger joke.
it's funnier if the schoolgirl is identified as irish as well :)
Thanks for the laugh on a cold grey day
Hahahaha! :D
That one goes back a long way in various forms! :o)

Yes. i remember the schoolgirl as a "hippie" 1960s
The reason that this version is less funny, aside from the fact that i'm not Irish, is that is is told by an American conservative. Such people are totally lacking in anything that i can identify as "humor."
Much the same as our Tories here in the UK then.

For myself, I'll stick to being a Socialist- we at least see the joke! :o)

Only I find it hard to believe that Bushie II would be selfless. :p
Hugs, Jon
It may have been around in various for ages for a while - but I have never heard it before, so it made me smile.
I don't know your prime minister, but I enjoyed the laugh.
That made me laugh!!
