Diving Contest

Category: Rated G

Brian received this one from Paul Thomas.


The rich man aboard his sailing ship in New York’s East river watched the poor kids diving off a pier. He paid particular attention to one of the divers because of his apparent ability. He went to the pier and invited the outstanding diver to his ship for a diving contest.

When the young guy got there, he found six other divers that were in the contest. As the contest wore on, it came down to the poor boy and one other diver. They climbed to the top of the highest point on the mast and prepared to dive. Just as the poor boy dove, the wake from a passing ship caused the sailing vessel to roll and he landed on the deck instead of in the pool. All rushed over to him to see how he was. The poor boy said, “Not to worry, I’m used to hard ships.”
