    A sailor was caught as he tried to sneak aboard his ship at 3 a.m. The officer ordered the sailor, "Take this broom and sweep every link on this anchor chain by morning, or it's the brig for you!" As the sailor began to sweep, a tern landed on the broom handle. The sailor picked the tern off and tossed it aside. The bird returned to the broom handle, and was once again tossed aside. Through the night, the bird and sailor continued their struggle. At dawn, the officer returned. "What in the heck have you been doing all night?" he barked. "This chain is no cleaner than when you started!" "Honest, sir," came the reply, "I tossed a tern all night and couldn't sweep a link!"


    As an insomniac, I approve this joke. :rolleyes: :p :D

    Here's a seagull story from my grandfather's Navy days. One time after the ship pulled into port, he was disembarking the ship for liberty. As soon as his foor hit the end of the gangplank, a seagull divebombed him and left something nice all over the front of his shirt.. He had to turn around, go back to the ship, and change.
