There were 11 people hanging onto a rope that came down from a helicopter — 10 were men and the other was a woman.

The helicopter pilot said that there was one too many people on the rope and it would break and they would all die, if someone didn’t get off.

Just one person too many.

No one could decide who should go, so finally the woman gave a really touching speech, saying how she would give up her life to save the others, because women were used to giving up things for their husbands and children and giving in to men.

Then all the men started clapping.
