While sports fishing off the Florida coast, a tourist boat capsizes. He could swim, but his fear of alligators kept him clinging to the overturned craft. He suddenly spots an old beachcomber about a hundred yards from him walking along the shore, the tourist shouts, "Are there any gators around here?!"
"Naw," the man hollers back, "they ain't been around for years!"
"Feeling safe, the tourist starts to swim leisurely toward the shore.
About half-way there he yells out, "How'd you get rid of the gators?"
"We didn't do nothin'," the beachcomber says.
"The sharks got 'em."
