croc in a pool

One day, a wealthy man announced during a party that if any man present dared to swim across his swimming pool, which contained more than twenty crocodiles, he would be awarded with his choice of a million dollars or the hand of his beautiful daughter.

After a lengthy period of silence, the host observed a young man swimming across the pool with incredible speed, avoiding the crocodiles with every stroke. As the man climbed from the pool, everyone began clapping and cheering.

The host was noticeably impressed with the young man’s bravery. He congratulated him and then asked what the young man desired as his prize – the money or his daughter.

To this, the young man replied, “Sir, I want neither your property, nor your daughter, I just want to kick the ass of the man who threw me in the water.”
