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.."
