The Harm We Do to Ourselves – A Pirate Story

A seaman meets a pirate in a bar, and talk turns to their adventures on the sea. The seaman notes that the pirate has a peg-leg, a hook, and an eye patch. The seaman asks “So, how did you end up with the peg-leg?”

The pirate replies “We were in a storm at sea, and I was swept overboard into a school of sharks. Just as me men were pulling me out, a shark bit me leg off”

“Wow!” said the seaman. “What about your hook”? “Well…”, replied the pirate, “We were boarding an enemy ship and were battling the other sailors with swords. One of the enemy cut me hand off.”

“Incredible!” remarked the seaman. “How did you get the eyepatch”? “A seagull dropping fell into me eye.”, replied the pirate. “You lost your eye to a seagull dropping?” the sailor asked incredulously.

“Well…”, said the pirate, “…it was me first day with the hook.”
