While sports fishing off the Florida coast,
a tourist capsized his boat. He could swim,
but his fear of alligators kept him clinging
to the overturned craft. Spotting and old
beachcomber standing on the shore, the
tourist shouted,"Are there any gators around
"Naw," the man hollered back, "they ain't
been around for years!"
"Feeling safe, the tourist started swimming
leisurely toward the shore.
About halfway there he asked the guy,"How'd
you get rid of the gators?"
"We didn't do nothin'," the beachcomber said.
"The sharks got 'em."
