Two wildlife biologists are following the tracks of a radio-collared grizzly bear when, all of a sudden, the immense animal crashes out of the brush and heads right for them. Scrambling up the nearest tree, they find the bear is climbing up the trunk after them.
The first biologist takes off his heavy hiking boots and pulls a pair of sleek running shoes from his backpack. His colleague gives him a puzzled look and says, “What are you doing?”
He says, “I figure when the bear gets close to us we’ll jump down and make a run for it.”
“Are you crazy? We both know you can’t outrun a fully grown grizzly bear.”
“I don’t have to outrun the bear. I only have to outrun you.”
