Jiang Zemin, George W. Bush and Tung Chee-hwa, were set to face a firing squad in a small Central American country.
Jiang Zemin was the first one placed against the wall and just before the order was given, he yelled out "Earthquake!" The firing squad fell into a panic and Jiang Zemin jumped over the wall and escaped in the confusion.
George W. Bush was the second one placed against the wall. The squad was reassembled and George W. Bush pondered what he had just witnessed. Again, before the order was given, George yelled out "Tornado!" Again, the squad fell apart and George slipped over the wall.
The last person was Tung Chee-hwa. As he was placed against the wall, he was thinking "I see a pattern here, just scream out something about a disaster and hop over the wall." He confidently refused the blind fold as the firing squad was reassembled. As the rifles were raised in his direction he grinned from ear to ear and yelled, "Fire!"
