A priest, a drunk, and a engineer are about to be executed in France during the French Revolution. The priest is first in line and the executor asks him if he wants to be looking up or down as the guillotine blade falls on him. The priest replies “I want to look up at the heavens before I die.” As a guillotine blade falls it stop inches before reaching his neck. The spectators cheer “God does not want him to die!” and the priest is free to go. Next, the drunk is asked the same question. ” I want to look up and would like to be drinking a glass of wine before I die” said the drunk. As the guillotine blade falls, it stops inches before reaching his neck and once again the spectators cheer “God does not want him to die!” and the drunk is free to go. Finally, it’s the engineer’s turn. “I also want to look up because the other didn’t die by looking up so chances are I won’t either” said the engineer. As the guillotine blade is falling the engineer suddenly says “Oh wait! I see the problem with the guillotine!”
