The Giant

I looked out the window and saw a man walking down the street. He appeared to be twenty feet tall. Except for his height, there was absolutely nothing extraordinary about him. I ran outside to join the neighbors. The giant did not seem to notice us. We all stood there in awe. Soon we could hear the sirens of the police.
When they arrived the giant did not pay any attention to them. They talked to him with loudspeakers, ordering him to stop. He kept walking. A SWAT team arrived. He did not obey them either. They opened fire. He fell to the ground with the loudest thud any one had ever heard. Scientists went to work to figure out who or what this giant was. Eventually it dawned on them that this giant was God’s midget plumber.
Apparently, the Pacific Ocean was just a leak in God’s toilet. You Polynesians know what that makes you, right?
