Fifty Feet of Water

Many mythical years ago, word went out that within sixty days, the southern tip of Florida was about to fall away and be covered by fifty feet of water. What to do?

The scientists and the engineers and the politicians were completely baffled. The mayor of one small community decided to call together all the religious leader in the threatened area. "You must tell us how to respond to this impending 'Act of God,'" he challenged them.

One leader said piously: "The solution is prayer.  We must pray." Another suggested that a study committee be appointed.

Still another thought that evacuation was the only answer. The most learned philosopher in the group merely said, "What will be, will be."

Finally, one of the persons serving coffee spoke up, "Find out how to live under fifty feet of water!"
