With the second season of Alone being over, it opens up a time slot for yet another ‘thriller’ of a TV show. The contestants indicated that the mental aspect of being alone was harder that the physical problems they encountered. This reminded me of the shipwrecked man story.
A shipwrecked man sits on a log in his camp near the beach. As he is looking out to sea, he notices a small spot in the distance approaching his island. He shields his eyes from the glaring sun and says to himself, “Hmm. Not big enough for a ship.” As the spot gets closer he says, “Not even big enough for a raft.”
Sure enough, as the spot gets even closer he can see that it’s the top of a snorkel. Wearing that snorkel is a gorgeous blonde who emerges from the water wearing a skin tight wet suit. She removes the snorkel and says, “Hey buddy, when was the last time you had a good cigar?”
“”Geez, it been about five years,” he says.
She unzips a small pocket on the wet suit, pulls out and opens a waterproof case, revealing a Havana cigar along with a lighter. She lights the cigar and hands it to the man.
As she waves off his thanks, she says, “When was the last time you had a good shot of Jack Daniels?”
“Same as the cigar, five years,” he says.
She unzips yet another little pocket on her wet suit. She pulls out a bottle of JD along with a shot glass, pours him a shot and hands it to him. Instead of savoring it, he throws it back happily.
She smiles and says to him, “When was the last time you had some real fun?” and starts to unzip the long middle zipper of her wet suit.
“Oh, my God,” he says. “Don’t tell me you have a set of golf clubs in there!”
