The Pool

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.”

“Bonds, stocks?”

“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!”
