And we like this. Ahhhhhhh!

“There's a young deck hand on a pirate ship for the first time.
Since he's the new guy on board, his job is swabbing the deck. The young man is excited about his adventure on board and
enamored with the old, salty pirate captain–a rough old man with a peg
leg, an eye patch and a hook for a hand. After a few weeks on board,
the young deck hand gets up the courage to talk to the captain for the
first time.

He asks the captain, “What happened to your leg that you have to walk on a peg leg?”

The captain replies, “Arrrgh! We was sailing around the shore in the
Caribbean and while I was pillaging a settlement, I came upon a nasty
alligator who bit me leg off at the knee.”

“Wow! That's an incredible story,” said the boy and left the captain alone not wanting to be a nuisance.

A few days later, the young man is on deck with the captain again and
asks, “If you don't mind me asking, what happened to your hand?”

The captain sneered and said, “We was on the open sea chasin' the
mightiest killer whale you ever saw when the monster turned back on us
and tore me hand off, causing me to have to use this hook.”

Feeling good about talking with the captain, the young deck hand continued, “And what happened to your eye?”

The captain laughed and said, “A seagull pooped in it.”

“Really?” said the boy, “you lost your eye because a seagull pooped in it?”

“Aye,” said the captain, “It was me first day with the hook.”
