Hooked

An old seaman met an old pirate in a bar, and talked about their adventures on the sea. The seaman noted that the pirate had a peg-leg, a hook, and an eye patch.

The seaman asked, “So, how did you end up with the peg-leg?”

The pirate replied, “We were in a storm at sea, and I was swept overboard into a school of sharks. Just as my men were pulling me out, a shark bit my leg off.”

“Wow!” exclaimed the seaman. “What about your hook”?

“We were boarding an enemy ship and were battling the other sailors with swords,” recalled the pirate. “In the skirmish, one of the enemy managed to cut off my hand.”

“Incredible!” remarked the seaman. “And how did you get the eye patch?”

“A seagull dropping fell into my eye,” replied the pirate.

“You lost your eye to a seagull dropping?,” the sailor asked incredulously.

“Well,” sighed the pirate, “it was my first day with the hook”
