An airplane was captured by terrorists. When they checked out the passengers they found that only three Americans were on the flight, a West Virginian, a Californian and a Texan. The hijackers said, "We are known as the bravest and most compassionate of all terrorists, so before we tie your hands behind your back and shoot you in the head, we are going to grant you one last request."
The West Virginian says, "I always wondered if I could drink all those little bottles of booze on that cart the stewardess wheels around." The Terrorist told him to he would be allowed to try. The hijackers next asked the Californian if he had a last request.
The Californian replied, "Before you kill me I want all of us to share in this death experience together. I will tell everyone my life story. Share my hopes, fears and dreams and reflect on all I would have done if my life was not so tragically ended. We will all be able to then share as one in the experience of my death. The hijackers said he could.
Finally they asked the Texan for his last request. He instantly responded, "SHOOT ME BEFORE HE TELLS HIS STORY"
