Edit: This joke is best told out loud
A billionaire throws a party for the whole town. He has everything a billionaire could possibly have including: tennis courts, go cart track, mini-golf, private airplane, and a huge mansion. The main attraction however is the biggest swimming pool you’ve ever seen, and inside that pool, the worlds biggest alligator.
At the end of the party he makes a announcement, ‘Before everyone leaves Id like to make a challenge, Whoever can swim across my swimming pool without getting eaten by the alligator can have one of three things. (1. A billion dollars) (2. Half my estate) (or 3. My daughters hand in marriage). No one however has the guts to do so and the party ends and everyone goes home.
The very next year he throws another party’s just like the first and at the very end he challenges someone to the same challenge as before. However no one has the guts the 2nd year either and everyone leaves.
The third year comes and he decides to throw one more party, and at the end of the party he gives his challenge one more time. Just as he is finishing saying what he will give the lucky guy who can swim across, He hears a splash of someone jumping in. He looks over to see this guy swimming as fast as he possibly can across the pool with the alligator chasing after him. Everyone in town is cheering him on as the alligator is snapping it’s jaw at his feet. The man reaches the end of the pool and 3 men pull him up as the alligator snaps his shoe off.
The billionaire rushes over and he exclaims, ‘THAT WAS THE BRAVESET THING I HAVE EVER SEEN IN MY LIFE!!! Which choice do you want out of the three?!?! The man is breathing so heavily he can’t speak. The bilionare asks, ‘Do you want a billion dollars?’ The man replies with heavy breathing ‘No no No’. The billionaire responds with ‘You’re a smart man you must want half my estate’. The man replies with heavy breathing still ‘No No gasp No’. The billionaire goes ‘Ok you are even smarter than I thought. You may have my daughters hand in marriage.’ The man replies still breathing heavily ‘No No I don’t want your daughter’. The billionaire now confused asks ‘Than what do you possibly want?!?!?!’ The man replies back with, ‘I, I just want the na, name of the gu, guy who pushed me in.
