Satiric radio commentary for the 90s from the man who drained Lake Michigan and filled it with hot chocolate!!!

One Swimmer's Victory...

Stan Freberg here. The first woman to swim from Cuba to Florida through shark-infested waters has made it alive. Some comments, after this. [:60 SPOT BREAK]

Freberg here. Yes, an Australian woman, Susie Maroney, 22, swam into the record books by leaving Cuba in her bathing suit, and 24 and a half hours later, staggering up onto the Florida Keys. She swam enclosed in a moving steel cage, to protect her from woman-eating sharks, but still put up with stinging jellyfish, and hallucinations.

But let's look at this from the shark's point of view: "Hey, Fred, could you go for a little marathon swimmer?" The other shark says, "Uh, I don't know. What does it taste like?" "Aaahhh...tastes like chicken!" "Yeah, but they've changed the container it comes in. Too hard to get to it. Lucky if you don't break your teeth!" "Yeah. Why can't they just leave things the way they were?"

Hmm. I guess one swimmer's victory is another shark's frustration.
