One day a rich guy was having a party at his house. He was loaded,
he had everything; money, a big house in Beverly Hills, girls,
cars, planes; anything he wanted. The guy was also a little eccentric,
and he had filled his pool with crocodiles. So there he was, he and
his friends all standing around drinking and partying
next to the pool.
The guy got up on the lifeguard tower and all his friends looked
up. He called for silence and said, "The first person that swims
across my pool will get all my money."
No one moves. The guy looked over the crowd and
said, "OK, the first person that swims across my pool gets all my
money AND my house."
Still no one moves. "OK then, the first person that swims across my
pool gets all my money, my house; AND all my cars and planes."
Still, no one moves, not even a eye blinks this time. "OK then,
all my money, my house, all my cars, all my planes, all my property, all my
stocks and bonds and investments and all the girls you can handle; everything I own."
Splash! Someone was in the pool. Crocodiles were all over him, but
he rolled over like Tarzan, he's all over the place, fighting and
dodging. Finally he got out of the pool on the other side. The rich
guy jumped down from the tower and ran over to him. "That was
incredible! I never thought that I would ever see that done. Do you
want the money now or later?"
"I don't want the money."
"Do you want the house now or later?"
"I don't want the house."
"The cars and planes?"
"I don't want the cars or planes."
"I don't want that either."
"I don't want the girls."
The rich guy looked at him and asked, "Well, what do you want?!?!"
"I want the guy that pushed me in!"
