“Who are the world’s fastest readers?"/"9/11 victims. They went through 87 stories in 10 seconds.”

Jokes about the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on New York City’s World Trade Center are numerous, although not politically correct. One popular riddle is:

Q: Who are the world’s fastest readers?
A: 9/11 victims. They went through 87 stories in 10 seconds.


The number of stories and the number of seconds varies. “How do you know 9/11 victims were good readers? .................................They made it through 110 stories in under 10 seconds” was posted on Twitter on August 3, 2011.

The 9/11 joke has been printed on many images.


Wikipedia: September 11 attacks
The September 11 attacks (also referred to as 9/11) were a series of four coordinated terrorist attacks by the Islamic terrorist group Al-Qaeda on the United States on the morning of Tuesday, September 11, 2001. The attacks consisted of suicide attacks used to target symbolic U.S. landmarks.

Four passenger airliners—which all departed from airports on the U.S. East Coast bound for California—were hijacked by 19 al-Qaeda terrorists to be flown into buildings. Two of the planes, American Airlines Flight 11 and United Airlines Flight 175, were crashed into the North and South towers, respectively, of the World Trade Center complex in New York City. Within an hour and 42 minutes, both 110-story towers collapsed, with debris and the resulting fires causing partial or complete collapse of all other buildings in the World Trade Center complex, including the 47-story 7 World Trade Center tower, as well as significant damage to ten other large surrounding structures.
