The leaders of France, America, Russia and Iran had gathered for a secret conference.
The international political situation had deteriorated to such an extent that there was a real risk of nuclear war. In a last ditch attempt to avert catastrophe, the great men had decided to lay their differences aside and sit down together for a chat.
No location on earth could have been safe enough for this meeting.
So it was being held on the American Air Force One presidential plane flying at 30,000 feet above the Atlantic ocean.
President Nicholas Sarkozy, President Barack Obama, President Vladimir Putin and President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad were seated around the conference table.
For security reasons the only other human being on board was the pilot.
The great men seemed relaxed and smiling, even though the stakes were astronomically high.
The fate of humanity rode on this meeting.
But before the leaders could seriously get down to business, the pilot's voice crackled the intercom.
"We've had an electronic systems failure," he screamed. "Unless we lose weight we're going down. We're all gonna die."
The four Presidents scrambled from their seats and began throwing everything moveable off the plane.
"That's good," screamed the pilot over the intercom. "But it's not enough. We're still going down."
At this, President Nicholas Sarkozy stepped to the open emergency door.
He turned back to look at the others.
"Vive la France," he said simply.
And jumped out.
"Still not enough," screamed the pilot.
President Ahmadinejad stepped up to the door.
"Allah u akbar," he said with a jaunty little grin.
And jumped out.
"Still not enough," screamed the pilot.
President Putin stepped to the door.
"God bless America," he said.
And chucked out Barack Obama.
