Amazing Bathing Suit
by Michael A.
Charlie was certain he
invented a shark-repellent bathing suit. After
dipping his polka dot bathing suit in a mixture
of chicken soup and dill pickle juice, he put it
on, then jumped into the most dangerous shark-infested
area of the Pacific.
Within minutes, ten great
white sharks sensed his presence and raced toward
him. The moment they spotted his bathing suit,
they screamed and swam away at top speed. Later
that day, the Coast Guard found their carcasses
floating on the surface. Autopsies indicated the
sharks had been scared to death.
BBC offered Charlie a
million euros to repeat the test on live
television. The event was advertised around the
clock for a week in advance.
On the appointed day,
Charlie jumped into the ocean wearing his amazing
bathing suit. Billions of TV watchers held their
breath as underwater cameras showed dozens of
great whites rushing toward Charlie. Everyone
cheered when the sharks screamed, broke off their
attack, and headed in the opposite direction.
The next day, BBC televised
Nobody knew Loch Ness
Monsters considered polka dot bathing suits
dipped in chicken soup and dill pickle juice as
gourmet treats, and that theyd swim
thousands of miles just to eat one.
