Sea Stories

A newbie meets an old salt on the dock and they start talking about adventures at sea. Noting the aging skippers peg-leg, hook and eye patch. The newbie asked, " so how did you end up with the peg leg?"

The raggie replies, "We were caught in a huge storm off the cape and a giant wave swept me overboard. Just as me crew was pullin me out a school of sharks appeared and one of 'em bit me leg off."

"Blimey" said the newbie, "What about the hook ?"

"Ahhhh...." mused the old salt, "We were sailin' up the amazon. I reached over to haul up the anchor and a crocodile bit me hand clean off"

"Blimey" remarked the newbie, "How about the eye patch ?"

A seagull droppin fell into me eye", answered the abashed raggie .

"You lost your eye to a seagull dropping ? " the questioner asked incredulously.

"Well....." said the old salt, "It was me first day with the hook"

Just thought you guys would get a good chuckle out of this. I know I did !!
