Three Australian tourists

are on the observation deck of the Empire State Building in New York, oohing and aahing at the view. Over walks an American.

'Y'know' says the American, 'the wind patterns in Manhattan are such that if you jumped off this building the wind would blow you right back up here'.

'Bulldust' says the first Australian.

So the American offers to demonstrate. He climbs up over the railing and jumps into the abyss. The Australians watch him plummet to within 10 feet of the pavement, whereupon he gracefully rises again and returns to the observation deck. The Australians are amazed!!!

'Go on mate, show us that again' urges the second Australian.

Nothing loath, the American jumps a second time. This time he gets to within 3 feet of the pavement before soaring aloft again and landing on the observation deck.

'Crikey', says the third Australian. 'I'll give it a burl'. So he climbs onto the railing, jumps, falls and splat!!!! Right into the pavement.

Another American walks over and says to the first American....

'Y'know, sometimes you can be a real bastard, Superman!'
