"We are about to crash! There are two other parachutes!" they screamed as they jumped out of the plane with their own parachutes. George Bush immediately jumped up, grabbed a bag and shouted "I'm the most important man in the world! I'm the most important man in the world! It's my parachute!"

He just put on my backpack."
