Parsi Ingenuity

An airplane is flying over the United States at night. The pilot says “Ladies and Gentlemen, we have lost an engine, and need to lighten our load, we have dumped all excess fuel, but the plane is losing altitude. All baggage is being jettisoned.”

A little later, the pilot says “Ladies and Gentlemen, we’re still losing altitude, we must throw all luggage that is in the cabin”.

Despite more things being thrown out the plane continues its descent.

Pilot : “Still going down – we must throw out some people”.

There’s an audible gasp from the passengers!

Pilot : “But to make this fair passengers will be thrown out in alphabetical order….. so A…. any Africans on board?” No one moves.

Pilot : “B…any Blacks on board?” No one moves.

Pilot : “C….any Caribbean’s/Chinese on board?

He goes down the list.. “Eskimos.. …Jews..?

Still no one moves.

Little Parsi Boy : – (asking his dad) “Dad,… what are we?”

Dad : “Tonight son, remember we are Zoroastrians…”
