Friday Wisdom – Swimming

They kicked me off the water polo team – my horse couldn’t swim.

Turns out I’m a slow swimmer – I can only do the crawl.

My friend was doing the backstroke in the pool.  I asked him why and he said, “I just had lunch and didn’t want to swim on a full stomach.”

Elephants can go swimming anytime because they always have their trunks with them.

I read a book about swimming pools.  I was okay, started out a bit shallow, but it did have a deep end.

They ask me for a small donation to for community pool.  I gave them a gallon of water.

Did you know that hippos can swim and run faster than humans? Yup, they only way to beat them in a triathlon is on cycling part.

If I were stuck on a desert island the one record I like to have is for long distance swimming.

Why did the scientist jump in the pool? She wanted to test the water.

    I can just imagine going to fetch a gallon of water in a bucket while the other person waited at the door, expecting money. Great joke!

  3. Donation to the community pool, definitely. Elephant trunks a close second. Kindergartners would love that one. 🙂

  6. I may be going off the deep end, but I found these funny — and we all need a good laugh about now in this sink or swim world.
