One day long ago. There was a king who gathered all the people of the land. He said if anyone could swim across the lake (with crocodiles) would have their choice of : a castle, money, or his daughters hand in marriage.
One man jumped up and yelled "I can do it!" He tried and failed. Another man said "I can do better than that." So he jumped in and didn't make it either. Next the crowd heard a splash. A man swam all the way across the lake. The king asked him "Which one would you like? A castle, money, or my daughters' hand in marriage." The man replied "I want the sorry son-of-a-bitch that pushed me in!"
