Starts at 60 Daily Joke: A man wanted to walk on water

A man from Alaska had heard stories of an amazing family tradition. His father, grandfather and great grandfather had all been able to walk on water for their 18th birthday. On that day, they’d walk across the lake to the boat club for their first legal drink.

So when the man’s 18th birthday came around, he and his friend took a boat out to the middle of the lake. The man stepped out of the boat and onto the water. But to his surprise, he fell right in and nearly drowned. His friend just managed to pull the man to safety.

Furious and confused, the man went to see his grandmother. “Grandma, it’s my eighteenth birthday, so why can’t I walk across the lake, like my father, his father, and his father before him?”

The grandmother looked at her grandson straight in the eyes and shook her head, “Oh darling, your father, grandfather and great grandfather were born in the middle of winter.”
