THE DILAPIDATED OLD BOAT
Once there were twins,
Joe and John.
Joe was the owner of a dilapidated old boat.
It so happened that John's wife died
the same day that Joe's boat sank.
A few days later, a kindly old woman
saw Joe and mistook him for John.
She said, "I'm sorry to hear about your loss.
You must just feel terrible."
Joe, thinking that she was talking about his boat, said,
"Heck no, fact is I'm sort of glad to be rid of her.
She was a rotten old thing right from the beginning.
Her bottom was all shrivelled up
and she smelled like old dead fish.
She was always losing her water,
she had a bad crack in the back
and a pretty big hole in the front too.
Every time I used her, her hole got bigger
and she leaked like crazy.
I guess what finally finished her off
was when I rented her to these
four guys looking for a good time.
I warned them that she wasn't very good,
but they wanted to use her anyhow.
The fools tried to get in her all at once and she split
right up the middle."
The old lady fainted.
