A C-130 was about to crash in Tacloban; there were 5 passengers on board, but only 4 parachutes. The first passenger said, “I am President Aquino, the chosen one. The Philippines needs me, I can’t afford to die.” So he took the first parachute and left the plane. The second passenger, Mar Roxas, said, “I am the next president of the Philippines, so Filipinos don’t want me to die.” He took the second parachute and jumped out of the plane. The third passenger, Dinky Soliman, said, “I’m the Secretary of DSWD, a lot of people depend on me.” So she grabbed the parachute next to her and jumped. The fourth passenger, Dick Gordon, said to the fifth passenger, a 10-year-old Boy Scout, “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 Boy Scout said, “That’s okay, Mr. Gordon. There’s a parachute left for you. President Aquino grabbed my SCHOOL BAG.”
A post from FB.
"My father and I used to tussle about me becoming an actor. He’s from strong, Presbyterian Scottish working-class stock, and he used to sit me down and say, ‘You know, 99 percent of actors are out of work. You’ve been educated, so why do you want to spend your life pretending to be someone else when you could be your own man?’"
