A group of ship passengers find themselves on a dingy after their cruiser sinks. Suddenly there are sharks circling everywhere. One of the survivors dives into the water and a few minutes later the sharks disappear and he reenters the dingy. The curious observers asked, "What did you do to get rid of the sharks?"
