The Firing Squad




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

Placed against the wall and just before the order was given he yelled
out, "Earthquake!" The firing squad fell into a panic and Clinton jumped
over the wall, escaping in the confusion.

Al Gore was the second one placed against the wall. The squad was
reassembled and Al pondered what he had just witnessed. Again before the
order was given, Gore yelled out, "Hurricane!" Again the squad fell apart
and Gore 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 something about a
disaster and hop over the wall."

He confidently refused the blindfold as the firing squad was reassembled.
As the rifles were raised in his direction he grinned from ear to ear and
yelled, "Fire!"
