A seaman meets a pirate in a bar, and take turns boasting of their adventures on the high seas. The seaman notes that the pirate has a peg-leg, a hook, and an eye patch.
The seaman asks “So, how did you end up with the peg-leg?”
The pirate replies “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!” said the seaman. “What about your hook”?
“Well…”, replied the pirate, “While my men and I were plundering in the middle east, I was caught stealing from a merchant and the punishment for theft in the middle east is the loss of the hand that steals”
“Incredible!” remarked the seaman. “How did you get the eye patch?”
“A sea gull dropping fell into my eye.”, replied the pirate.
“You lost your eye to a sea gull dropping?” the sailor asked incredulously.
“Well…”, said the pirate, “…it was my first day with the hook.”
