    The Business of the commander-in-chief is first to bring an enemy fleet to battle on the most advantageous terms to himself, (I mean that of laying his ships close on board the enemy, as expeditiously as possible); and secondly to continue them there until the business is decided.

    An old sea captain was sitting on a bench near the wharf when a young man walked up and sat down. The young man had spiked hair and each spike was a different colour … green, red, orange, blue, and yellow.

    After a while the young man noticed that the captain was staring at him.

    “What’s the matter old timer, never done anything wild in your life?”

    The old captain replied, “Got drunk once and married a parrot. I was just wondering if you were my son!”

    A thirsty sailor runs from his boat to the nearest bar and shouts to the bartender, “Give me twenty shots of your best scotch, quick!”

    The bartender pours out the shots, and the sailor drinks them as fast as he can.

    The bartender is very impressed and exclaims, “Wow. I never saw anybody drink that fast.”

    The sailor replies, “Well, you’d drink that fast too, if you had what I have.”

    The bartender says, “Oh my God! What is it? What do you have?”

    “Fifty cents!” replied the sailor.

    The Sailor and the computer

    A retired sailor purchased a computer and began to learn all about computing. Being a sailor, he was used to addressing his ships as "She" or "Her". But was unsure what was proper for computers.

    To solve his dilemma, he set up two groups of computer experts: one group was male, and the other group was female.

    The group of women reported that computers should be refereed to as "HE" because:

    1. In order to get their attention you have to turn them on. 2. They have a lot of data but are still clueless. 3. They are supposed to help you solve problems but half the time they are the problem. 4. As soon as you commit to one, you realise that if you had waited a little longer, you could have had a newer and better model.

    The group of men reported that computers should be refered to as "SHE" because:

    1. No one but the creator understands their logic. 2. The native language they use to talk to other computers is incomprehensible to anyone else. 3. Even your smallest mistakes are stored in long term memory for later retrieval. 4. As soon as you make a commitment to one, you find yourself spending half your paycheck on accessories for it.

    A doctor, a dentist and a lawyer were in a boat together when a wave came along and washed them all overboard.

    Unable to get back into the boat, they decided two would hold on to the boat and the third would swim to shore for help.

    They noticed that there were hundreds of sharks between them and land.

    Without a word the lawyer took off! As he swam the sharks move aside.

    The dentist yelled, “It’s a miracle!”

    “No”, said the doctor, “That’s professional courtesy!”

    A woman was nearing the end of her tether – every night her husband was snored so loudly that it kept her awake.

    She decided to call the family doctor to see if there was anything that could be done to relieve her nightly suffering.

    “Well, there is one operation I can perform that will cure your husband of his snoring,” said the doctor, “but I must warn you that it is rather expensive. It
    will cost you a deposit of 15,000, and payments of 1,000 for 48 months, as well as money for extras.”

    “Good grief!” exclaimed the woman. “That sounds like I’m buying a yacht!”

    “Hmm,” the doctor murmured, “too obvious, huh?

    Why does the Norwegian navy have bar codes on the side of their ships?

    So that when the ships come back into port they can Scandinavian!

    A pair of a novice sailors’ best mate died, and, in his will, specified that he wanted them to bury him at sea.

    So, the pair set out from shore in a rowboat with the body. They had rowed out a little way when one got out of the boat and stood knee deep in water.

    “We need to go out further,” he told the other. So they rowed out another fifty yards, and the same sailor jumped out again to find the water reached his chin.

    “We need to go out further,” he said again.

    About 150 yards from shore, he jumped out of the rowboat again and disappeared under water. After five minutes, he reappeared coughing and spluttering, and said to the other: “Thats far enough; hand me the shovel.”

    The one about the magician and the captain’s parrot:

    A magician was working on a cruise ship in the Caribbean. The audience would be different each week, so the magician allowed himself to do the same tricks over and over again. There was only one problem: The captain’s parrot saw the shows each week and began to understand how the magician did every trick. Once he understood he started shouting in the middle of the show:

    “Look, it’s not the same hat.”

    “Look, he is hiding the flowers under the table.”

    The magician was furious but couldn’t do anything; it was, after all, the captain’s parrot.

    One day the ship had an accident and sank. The magician found himself adrift on a piece of wood in the middle of the ocean with the parrot, of course. They stared at each other with hate, but did not utter a word. This went on for a day, then another, and another.

    After a week the parrot said: “OK, I give up. What’d you do with the ship?”

    The Business of the commander-in-chief is first to bring an enemy fleet to battle on the most advantageous terms to himself, (I mean that of laying his ships close on board the enemy, as expeditiously as possible); and secondly to continue them there until the business is decided.

    A sailor brings his boat up to a restaurant dock to eat lunch.

    The dockhand says, “I’m sorry, sir, but I can’t let you dine here today. This establishment has a necktie policy, and you are not wearing one.”

    “Of course I don’t have a tie on,” replied the sailor, “I’m on a boat!”

    “Well, go down below and put one on,” said the dockhand.

    “I don’t HAVE one!” shouted the sailor.

    The dockhand, not wanting to turn away a customer, said: “Well, why don’t you just find something that approximates a tie. That should be OK.”

    After some time, the sailor comes out with a pair of jumper cables. “This is all I could find to put around my neck,” he said.

    Sighing, the deck hand said: “OK, I’ll let you in with those, but just don’t start anything.”

    Good to see that we are getting back to normal as I hope is Mrs Gelf after her illness.

    Q: “What do you call a sail with only two corners?”

    A: “I haven’t got a clew!”


    [In nautical language a clew is the lower corner(s) of a sail to which a sheet is attached for trimming the sail (adjusting its position relative to the wind); the metal loop or cringle in the corner of the sail, to which the sheet is attached. On a triangular sail, the clew is the trailing corner relative to the wind direction. ]
