Take the leap

A young soldier is making his first parachute jump.

The corporal explains the procedure "You count to ten and pull the first ripcord. If the chute doesn't open, pull the second. That should do it. Then, after you land, there'll be a truck waiting to pick you up."

The soldier checks his gear, calls out the customary "Geronimo!" and jumps out of the plane. He counts to ten and pulls the ripcord.

The chute doesn’t open.

He pulls the second ripcord and the chute won't open. As he plummets downward, he thinks, "I'll bet that goddamn truck won't be there either!"
