    Tragedy



    The Reverends Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton, while
    visiting a primary school class, found themselves in
    the middle of a discussion related to words and their
    meanings.

    The teacher asked both men if they would like to lead
    the discussion of the word 'tragedy'. So the
    illustrious Rev Jackson asks the class for an
    example of a 'tragedy'.


    One little boy stood up and offered: 'If my best
    friend, who lives on a farm, is playing in the field
    and a runaway tractor comes along and knocks him dead,
    that would be a tragedy.'

    No,' says the Great Jesse Jackson, 'that would be an
    accident.'

    A little girl raised her hand: 'If a school bus
    carrying 50 children drove over a cliff, killing
    everyone inside, that would be a tragedy.'

    I'm afraid not,' explains the exalted Reverend Al.
    'That's what we would call a great loss. ' The room
    goes silent. No other children volunteered.


    Reverend Al searches the room. 'Isn't there someone
    here who can give me an example of a tragedy?'

    Finally at the back of the room little Johnny raises
    his hand. In a stern voice he says: 'If a plane
    carrying the Reverends Jackson and Sharpton were
    struck by a missile and blown to smithereens that
    would be a tragedy.'

    Fantastic!' exclaims Jackson and Sharpton, 'That's
    right. And can you tell me why that would be a
    tragedy?'

    'Well,' says little Johnny, 'because it sure as hell
    wouldn't be a great loss, and it probably wouldn't be
    an accident either.
