Thanks to Thomas for this one.
All of his life George from Cape Breton had heard stories of an amazing family tradition. It seems that his father, grandfather and great-grandfather had all been able to walk on water on their 21stbirthday.
On that day, they’d walk across the lake to the boat club for their birthday cake.
So when George’s 21st birthday came around, he and his pal Corky took a boat out to the middle of the lake. George stepped out of the boat and nearly drowned! Corky just managed to pull him to safety.
Furious and confused, George went to see his grandmother. “Grandma, it’s my 21st birthday, so why can’t I walk across the lake like my father, his father, and his father before him?”
Granny shook her head in disgust, looked into George’s eyes and said, “Because your father, grandfather and great grandfather were born in January, you were born in July.”
