Three people are passengers on a plane: a bishop, a boy scout and the quiz expert known as ‘the Brain of Britain’.

There's a BANG and suddenly the plane descends rapidly. The pilot comes racing through saying 'Engine failure! – We're going to crash soon...But there are only three parachutes…I must have one 'cos I'm the pilot and I need to report the accident.' So off he went with a parachute.

The Brain of Britain says imperiously: '...And I'm the Brain of Britain. I have vital contributions to make for the benefit of society. I must have a parachute.' So, off he went.

Finally the bishop looks at the boy scout, and says 'Look son...I've had a long and a happy life. But yours is just beginning. You must take the last parachute...And Good Luck.'

'No worry, Bishop...' the boy scout says...'we've got a parachute each. The Brain of Britain took my rucksack.'h. The Brain of Britain took my rucksack.'
