There were three women competing in the recent Breast Stroke division of an English Channel swim, a brunette, a redhead and a blonde.
It was a fierce race with the brunette and the redhead exchanging the lead across the long stretch of water. As they stroked closer and closer to the shores of France, the blonde fell further behind.
Finally, the brunette came in first, with the redhead a close second. Everyone cheered and the two women congratulated each other on such a fine race. But the blonde swimmer was still nowhere to be seen.
Much, much later, the blonde woman finally reached shore completely exhausted.
After being revived with blankets and coffee, she agreed to speak to the eager press.
"Can you please tell us what caused you to finish so far behind the other racers in today's race?" the first reporter asked.
The blonde shook her head, then remarked, "I don't want to complain, but I think those other two girls used their arms!"
