Does your seat float?

I was trying to phase out the usual flight safety song and dance on my Delta flight to Denver tonight when I caught a very interesting piece of the presentation:

"Most of your seat cushions can be used as floatation devices ..."

Most of them? What are they going to say next -- "Most of your gas masks will work in the event that the cabin is filled with poisonous gas."? I spent a good portion of the flight looking at the passengers within sight of my seat thinking to myself, "I wonder if he's the one who's going to be mooching float time off of me and my seat if we crash into a body of water ..."
