There was a competition to cross the English Channel doing only the breast stroke. Just three women entered the race: A brunette, a redhead, and a blonde.After approximately 14 hours the brunette staggered up on the shore and was declared the fastest swimmer. About 40 minutes later the redhead crawled up on the shore and was declared to be the second place finisher. Nearly 48 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 other two girls were using their arms."
