Daily Joke: Winning a Gator Bet
A wealthy man in Florida decided that he wanted to throw a party and invited all of his buddies and neighbors.
He held the party around the pool in the backyard of his mansion. Everyone was having a good time drinking, dancing, eating shrimp, oysters and BBQ and flirting with the women.
At the height of the party, the host said, "I have a 10 ft man-eating gator in my pool and I'll give a million dollars to anyone who is brave enough to jump in."
The words were barely out of his mouth when there was a loud splash and everyone turned around and saw a man in the pool!
He was fighting the gator and kicking its hide! He was jabbing the gator in the eyes with his thumbs, throwing punches, head butts and choke holds, biting the gator on the tail and flipping the gator through the air like some kind of Judo instructor.
The water was churning and splashing everywhere. Both the man and the gator were screaming and raising hell. Finally the man strangled the gator and let it float to the top like a K-mart goldfish. He slowly climbed out of the pool. Everybody was just staring at him in disbelief.
Finally the host says, "Well done! I owe you a million dollars."
"No, that's okay. I don't want it," said the man.
The host said, "Don't be silly, you won the bet.
"No thanks. I don't want it," he answered.
The host said, "Come on, I insist on paying the wager, what you did was amazing. Instead of cash, how about a new Porsche and a Rolex and some stock options?"
Again the man said no.
Confused, the wealthy man asked, "Well, then what do you want?"
The man answered, "I want the name of the guy who pushed me in the pool."
