A naked man is lying dead in the middle of a desert with a match in his hand. What happened?
He and his friends were on a hot air balloon when it malfunctioned. They tossed all their non-essentials overboard, then their clothing and food, but were still going to crash in the middle of the desert.
They drew straws (matches) to find someone who would jump off to lighten the weight, so the man drew the burned match and jumped off.
