A tourist was fishing off the coast of Florida when his boat capsized.
… He could swim, but he was afraid of alligators and clung to the side of the overturned boat.
Seeing an elderly beachgoer standing on the shore, the tourist shouted, “Are there any alligators around here?”
“No,” the man shouted back. “There haven’t been any for years!”
Feeling safe, the tourist calmly began to swim toward the shore.
Halfway there, he heard the old beach man yell,
“Better watch out for the sharks, they’re hungry now that there are no crocodiles to eat!”
