On a farm, an old woman sent her grandson to the pond for some water. As he dipped the bucket in, an alligator appeared from under the surface. He dropped the bucket and legged it back to his Grandma’s kitchen.
“I can’t get water from that pond,” he cried. “There’s this alligator in there!”
She laughed and said “Don’t worry about him, he’s tame. In fact, he’s probably as scared of you as you are of him.”
“In that case,” he replied, “that water isn’t fit to drink.”
