A MILLIONAIRE decides to throw a massive party for his 50th birthday. Once the party is full swing, he grabs the microphone. “In my garden down there I have a swimming pool with two crocodiles in it,” he announces. “If anyone can swim across that pool, I will give them any possession of mine they desire.”

So the party continues, and it appears no one is game enough to take the rich man up on his offer.

Suddenly, though, there is a great splash, and all the guests run to the pool to see what has happened.

In the pool is a man swimming for dear life, the crocodiles close behind him, snapping at his heels.

But the guy manages to reach the other end of the pool and practically jumps out of the water, terrified and exhausted.

The millionaire announces: “That man is the bravest person I have ever seen. Sir, you are entitled to anything that I have. What will it be?”

The guy grabs the microphone and says: “You can start by telling me the name of the bastard that pushed me in!”
