A pirate had a wooden leg, a hook on one arm, and a patch over one eye.

Someone asked him how these things happened.

He said that a whale bit off his leg,...

a crocodile had chewed off his hand,...

and a bird dropping hit him in the eye.

The other guy replied that he understood about the wooden leg having had his original bite off by a whale,...

and the hook was there to replace the hand the crocodile had chewed off,...

but a patch over the eye just because of a bird dropping ...

that he didn’t understand.

The pirate said...

“Aye...when the bird dropping hit me in the eye, that was me first day with the hook.”
