Spotting an old beachcomber standing on the shore, the tourist shouted, “Are there any barracuda around here?”
“Naw,” the man hollered back, “they ain’t been around here for some time!”
Feeling safe, the tourist started swimming leisurely toward the shore.
About halfway there the swimmer yelled, “How’d you get rid of them?”
“We didn’t do nothin,'” the old beachcomber said.
“Wow,” said the tourist.
The beachcomber added, “The sharks got ’em.”
