“Give a man a plane ticket and he’ll fly for a day” (joke)

A popular proverb is:

“Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and he will eat for a lifetime.”

A joke variation is:

“Give a man a plane ticket and he’ll fly for a day. Push a man out of a plane and he’ll fly for the rest of his life.”

The joke was posted on Twitter by tater tot bros on June 6, 2016.
