A John Deere collector went on an ocean cruise with his wife. One day, having had one beverage to many, he accidentally fell over the side while trying to play shuffleboard.
AS he was thrashing about, a great white shark noticed the commotion and began to investigate. The collector saw the shark bearing down on him, mouth open, teeth glistening. Being an old farm boy, he remembered that sometimes if you wave something at an animal, it will scare them off. He took aff his shirt and waved it at the shark. The shark immediately left the area, without even so much as a taste.
Now, you're probably thinking it was the waving shirt that saved our JD collector. Well, as it turns out, this particular collector had a big tattoo on his bicep. It had the leaping deer logo, and said John Deere - the best tractor ever.
And even a great white shark couldn't swallow that line...
