Shuki’s in the Pool

February 9, 2020 | by Aish.com

A wealthy Texan had an impressive ranch. He had a huge swimming pool where he kept a shark. The rich Texan loved to throw lavish dinner parties and would invite his guests up around the pool afterwards. Then he would say to them, "If any of you will swim a length of this pool then I will give you one of three things: $10 million, or half of my estate, or the hand of my daughter in marriage." Then he would add, "But I must warn you before you do so, there is a shark in the pool."

One evening a young Israeli named Shuki Hadari who had just finished his army service scored himself an invite to one of the Texans famous parties. After the Texan gave his usual spiel, there was a splash, Shuki was in the water and swam the entire length of the pool chased by the shark. Shuki got out of the pool just in time as the shark thudded into the wall.

The Texan said, "Congratulations you are the first person who has ever done that!! Now what would you like? Would you like $10 million?"

Shuki gasped, "No."

"Would you like half of my estate?"

"No," Shuki replied.

"Ahh, you want the hand of my daughter in marriage?" asked the Texan.

Exasperated, Shuki said, "No!"

So the Texan said to him, "Well what do you want?"

Shuki said, "I want the name of the guy who pushed me in."
