This is my 200th post. So let me make you all smile as I am. I am sharing some light hearted humour with you :
A ship docked at a small port for replenishing rations after almost a year at sea. A sailor with home town just about half an hour away from there, requested Captain for shore leave. Captain agreed due to compassionate grounds but told him to be back next day as they would be sailing in two days. There was no sign of him next day. As the ship was about to sail after two days, he was seen running up the pier towards the ship. When he boarded, Captain asked him for reasons to be late. Here is their conversation after that –
Sailor “ It took two days for my uniform to dry.”
Captain “ But it did not rain.”
Sailor” Sir, when I reached home my wife was in shower.”
Jim walking by river bank found a man propped up against a tree with his fishing rod secured in hallow of tree trunk. He saw that fishing line was taut as fish seemed to have taken the bait. He told that man about it asking him to pull out the fish. That man asked Jim to do it for him. After the fish was pulled out and unhooked, he asked Jim to put a bait and cast the line again. Jim obliged him and continued with his walk. Later while on his way back Jim found the same situation again. And the whole process of pulling out fish and casting fresh bait was repeated. Jim could not hold his curiosity asking that man if he was so lazy why did he not bring his son along with him for fishing. He said that he did not have a son as he was not married. Jim asked him then why did he not get married. That man asked Jim if he had a pregnant woman in mind.
Dodo got married. His friends asked him about plans for honeymoon. He told of an exotic destination chosen for that. Friends were surprised as that place was known to be very expensive while Dodo was a miser. On their asking Dodo told them that he is saving 50% cost. On being asked how, he told that his wife was going alone and his business partner had volunteered to go along at his expense to look after her safety.
