“I used to be addicted to swimming, but I’m very proud to say I’ve been dry for two years”

A joke about swimming—and drinking—was posted on Twitter by Alfie Moore on March 31, 2013:

“I used to be addicted to swimming but I’m proud to say I’ve been dry for two years #OneDayAtATime”

The joke was presented at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in August 2013.
