One day in a tavern a sailor and a pirate were comparing stories of their adventures. The pirate had a peg leg, one hook for a hand and an eye patch. The sailor asked about his peg leg. “I lost it in a shark attack”, the pirate said.

“What happened to your hand?”

“That I lost in a sword fight”, the pirate answered. And when he was asked about his patch, he explained a seagull dropping fell into his eye.

Astonished, the sailor said, “You mean to say that you lost your eye because of a seagull?”

“Well”, the pirate replied, “it happened the first day I had the hook”.
