Two old seadogs were mulling over old times in the Black

Dog Public House. One had a wooden leg and the other had

an eye patch and a hook on the end of his arm.

“So how did you lose your leg?” asked one-eyed Jack.

“It were back in ‘49. Our ship went down in rough seas off the

coast of China and some bloody big shark came along and bit

it off. The bastard! So what about you and your hook?”

“That was down to Hardacre’s lads. They chased us halfway

across the channel before boarding us. But we put up a great

fight. Shook the beggars off in the end. Just a shame it wasn’t

before one of them cut my arm off.”

“And what about the eye patch?”

“Seagull shit.”

“What! I don’t believe it.”

“As true as I’m sitting here,” said Jack. “I happened to look

up at the sun and this seagull shat in my eye.”

“And that’s what made you blind?”

“No, but it was only the second day with my new hook.”
