That reminds me of the story about the two sailors. They were looking at the water and one says: “It’s a lot of water out there.” And the other guy says, “Yeah, that’s just the top of it.”
Hey, those snakes out here, they can swim. Be careful of that. Those snakes can crawl over water like they’re crawling over the ground. My. And some people, they says, “You going swimming?” You’re swimming around, and then you look up… and you see this snake coming towards you. Oh, brother!
