There was a competition to swim from Santa Monica to Catalina
doing only the breaststroke, and the three women who entered
the race were a brunette, a redhead and a blonde. After
approximately 14 hours, the brunette staggered up on the shore
and was declared the fastest breaststroker. About 40 minutes
later, the Redhead crawled declared the second place finisher.
Nearly 4 hours after that, the blonde finally came ashore and
promptly collapsed in front of the worried onlookers.
When the reporters asked why it took her so long to complete
the race, she replied, "I don't want to sound like I'm a sore
loser, but I think those two other girls were using their arms."
