Due to budget constraints, the Board of the Daily Planet advised Perry White that he had to let one of his star reporters go. He was really overwhelmed about the magnitude of the decision.
“Who should go, Clark Kent or Lois Lane?” He actually did some praying, which he hadn’t done for a long time. He asked, “Please, show me a sign.”
That afternoon he was doing some shopping at Wal*Mart, and when he went to his car he suddenly saw the answer.
The next day he called Clark and Lois into the office and said, “I’m sorry, Lois, but you have to go.”
After Lois collected her things and left, Clark took Perry aside and asked, “Chief, how did you know which one of us should go?”
Perry said, “Well, that turned out to be easier than I thought. While I was parking at Walmart, I looked up and there was the sign: FIRE LANE.”
