From "Dead Like Me" -

Once upon a time, there was a traveller on horseback who finds himself facing a swamp, and he doesn't know whether to go around or try to wade through. The traveller asks a local boy: "Tell me, local boy. Does the swamp have a hard bottom?"

And the boy tells him that it does.

So the traveller guides his horse into the swamp, and they begin to sink deeper and deeper into the muck. He shouts to the boy: "I thought you said it has a hard bottom!"

And the boy says: "It does, Mr. Traveller. You're just not there yet."
