Humor: Hot Air Balloon

Posted by cann0nba11 on May 27, 2009

A woman in a hot air balloon realized  she was lost. She lowered her altitude and spotted a man in a boat  below:

“Excuse me, can you help me? I  promised a friend I would meet him an hour ago, but I don’t know  where I am.”

The man consulted his portable GPS and replied,  “You’re in a hot air balloon, approximately 30 feet above ground elevation of  2,346 feet above sea level. You are at 31 degrees, 14.97 minutes  north latitude and 100 degrees, 49.09 minutes west longitude.”

She rolled her eyes and said, “You must be a Republican.”

“I am,” replied the man. “How did you know?”

“Well,” answered the balloonist, “everything you told  me is technically correct. But I have no idea what to do with your information, and I’m still lost. Frankly, you’ve not been much help to me.”

The man smiled and responded, “You must be an Obama Democrat.”

“I am,” replied the balloonist. “How did you know?”

“Well,” said the man, “you don’t know where you are or  where you are going. You’ve risen to where you are, due to a large  quantity of hot air. You made a promise you have no idea how to keep, and you expect me to solve your problem. You’re in exactly the  same position you were in before we met, but somehow, now it’s my fault.”
