While sports fishing off the Florida coast, a tourist's boat capsized. Although he could swim, his fear of alligators kept him clinging to the capsized craft. Finally spotting a man at the shore, he shouted out to him, "Hey, are there any 'gators around here?"
"Nope," the man yelled back. "Ain't been any 'gators 'round these parts for years!"
Feeling more at ease, the tourist commenced swimming leisurely towards shore.
When he was about halfway there, he shouted out to the at the shore again, "How'd you get rid of the 'gators?"
"Oh, we didn't do nothin'," the guy yelled back. "The sharks got every last one of 'em!"
