    It was a reunion of one of the last Diesel submarines that had seen much action. They started building nuclear subs and the Diesels were fading from the fleet rapidly. *The Com- manding Officer was asked to be the main speaker. *He agreed and requested that his old Executive Officer and COB (Chief of the Boat) be seated on either side of him He wanted this so during the meal he could reminisce and find out what the two had been doing since he had seen them last.

    The CO was in such a hurry to get to his engage- ment that when he arrived and sat down at the head table, he suddenly realized that he had forgotten his false teeth. **

    Turning to the COB seated next to him, he complained, "I forgot my teeth, what am I going to do now!?" **

    The COB said, "No problem." He reached into his pocket and pulled out a pair of false teeth. "Try these," he said. **

    The CO tried them on. "Too loose," he said. **

    The COB then said, "I have another pair -- try these." **

    The CO tried them on and responded, "Too tight." **

    The COB was not taken back at all. He said, "I have one ** <BR>more pair. Try them."**

    The CO said, "They fit perfectly." **

    With that, he ate his meal and gave his speech. After the dinner meeting was over, the CO turned to thank the COB who had helped him. **

    "I want to thank you for coming to my aid as you did on many occasions while we both served in the Pacific. *I'm glad you continued your education and became a Dentist. *Where is your office? *

    The COB replied, "I'm not a dentist. I'm an undertaker." **

    You gotta love them Chief Petty Officers -- especially COBs on submarines!!!
