While fishing off the Australia coast, a tourist capsized his boat.
He could swim, but his fear of crocodiles kept him clinging to the overturned craft.
Spotting an old beachcomber standing on the shore, the tourist shouted,
“Are there any crocs around here?!”
“Nope,” the man hollered back, “They ain’t been around for years!”
Feeling safe, the tourist started swimming leisurely toward the shore. About halfway there he asked the guy,
“How’d you get rid of the crocs?”
“We didn’t do anything,” the beachcomber said. “The sharks go ’em.”
