An able-bodied seaman meets a pirate in a bar,and they take turns recounting their adventures at sea.
Noting the pirate`s peg-leg, hook, and eye patch the seaman asks, "So, how did you end up with the peg-leg?"
The pirate replies, "We was caught in a monster storm off the cape and a giant wave swept me overboard. Just as they were pullin` me out a school of sharks appeared and one of `em bit me leg off".
"Blimey!" said the seaman. "What about the hook"?
"Ahhhh...," mused the pirate, "we were boardin` a trader ship, pistols blastin` and swords swingin` this way and that. In the fracas me hand got chopped off."
"Zoinks!", remarked the seaman. "And how came ye by the eye patch?"
"A seagull droppin` fell into me eye," answered the pirate.
"You lost your eye to a seagull dropping?" the sailor asked incredulously.
"Well..." said the pirate, ".. it was me first day with the hook.."
