Daily Joke: Boat Full of People Stranded at Sea Full of Man-Eating Sharks
A boat full of people was stranded in the middle of the ocean, a few miles from shore. But the water was infested with man-eating sharks so it was a dangerous task to swim to shore.
But one man stood up and said, "I am a doctor at peak physical strength. I will swim to shore and get help." The doctor then jumped into the water and began swimming towards shore.
Unfortunately, he did not get very far before he was caught by the sharks and eaten. After a few more minutes, another man stood up and volunteered to swim to shore.
He looked at the other passengers and said, "I am an Olympic swimmer. I am much faster and stronger than the doctor. I am sure I can get to shore before the sharks get me."
So he jumped in and began to swim to shore. Although he got further than the doctor, unfortunately, the sharks caught him and ate him up! The passengers sat on the boat for another hour.
Then a third man volunteered to swim to shore. However, this time, he did not say anything. He just swam to shore. After a while, he swam back to the boat and said, "Okay, I called the coast guard. They will be here soon."
One woman finally asked him, "How did you swim to shore without being bitten by the sharks? Those other two didn't stand a chance against the sharks!"
"Well," said the man, "I am a lawyer. It was just professional courtesy."
That lawyer really sorted out those sharks! For another laugh, check out the joke below about a lawyer who was visiting a farm!
A LAWYER IN A BARN
One day a rabbi, a Hindu, and a lawyer were driving together when their car broke down on the road in the countryside. Fortunately, there was a farm close by where they could stay the night.
However, the farmer explained that he only had two spare beds inside his farmhouse and that one of them would have to sleep inside the barn.
So first, the Hindu man volunteered and said, "I am a humble man; I can sleep in the barn and still be very comfortable." So he went to sleep in the barn.
But after 10 minutes, the farmer heard a knock at the door. When he opened the door, the Hindu man was on the other side and said, "There is a cow in the barn, so I can not sleep there."
So the rabbi volunteered to sleep in the barn instead. However, a few minutes later, there was another knock at the door. The rabbi said, "I cannot sleep inside the barn, as I cannot share the same space with a pig."
So the lawyer volunteered to sleep in the barn instead. However, there was knocking at the door after a few minutes. The farmer sighed and went to open the door. It was the pig and the cow.
Wow, that lawyer even annoyed the farm animals! If you need another joke, check out this one about a lawyer who bought a new and expensive car.
