Now THAT'S Humor

From an e-mail I received from a colleague today.

Here's a dilemma for you....

With all your honour and dignity what would you
do? This test only has one question, but it's a
very important one. Please don't answer it
without giving it some serious thought. By giving
an honest answer you will be able to test where
you stand morally. The test features an
unlikely, completely fictional situation, where
you will have to make a decision one way or the
other. Remember that your answer needs to be
honest, yet spontaneous. Please scroll down
slowly and consider each line - this is important
for the test to work accurately. You're in
Florida...In Miami, to be exact. There is great
chaos going on around you, caused by a hurricane
and severe floods. There are huge masses of water
all over you.

You are a CNN photographer and you are in the
middle of this great disaster. The situation is
nearly hopeless. You're trying to shoot very
impressive photos. There are houses and people
floating around you, disappearing into the
water. Nature is showing all its destructive
power and is ripping everything away with it.
Suddenly you see a man in the water, he is
fighting for his life, trying not to be taken
away by the masses of water and mud. You move
closer. Somehow the man looks familiar.

Suddenly you know who it is - it's George W.
At the same time you notice that the raging
waters are about to take him away, forever. You
have two options. You can save him or you can
take the best photo of your life.

So you can save the life of George W. Bush, or
you can shoot a Pulitzer prize winning photo, a
unique photo displaying the death of one of the
world's most powerful men.

And here's the question (please give an honest

Would you select color film, or rather go with
the simplicity of classic black and white?
