Why The Ocean Is Salty

"Why is the ocean salty," the boy asked his father.

"Because," his father replied, "Many years ago, a ship with a salt making machine sank in a terrible storm."

"The crew was rescued," the father said. "But when the ship sank, there was no way to stop the machine from making salt."

"To this day, the salt machine keeps making salt, and will until that sunken ship is found, and the machine is finally turned off."


This story was told to me when I was a boy during the 1950's by my dad's friend, Bert Cohen. Print Friendly and PDF
