NASA decided to send three astronauts to space for three years. The astronauts were not allowed back to earth for the entire three years but they were all allowed to take 95 kilograms of baggage each.
The first astronaut decided to take his wife, the second decided to take along books to learn how to speak Italian, and the third astronaut decided to take cigarettes.
Three years later, when the space shuttle landed, there was a big crowd waiting to welcome them home.
First came the first astronaut and his wife, each of them holding a baby in their arms.
Next, out came the second astronaut speaking fluent Italian. They both gave their speeches and got a rousing applause.
Suddenly out came the third astronaut with a cigarette in his mouth.
He walked up to the podium, snarled to the crowd and asked, “Has anyone got a damn light?”
