Goober visits with an old friend in a new profession

Welp, I ran into an old friend of mine and I found out he's been workin' in the Caribean Sea as a pirate. I hardly recognized him cause he wuz so beat up.

I said, "Hey, I haven't seen you in a while. What happened? You look terrible!"

"What do you mean?" said the pirate. "I feel fine."

"What about the wooden leg? You didn't have that before."

"Well, we were in a battle and I got hit with a cannon ball, but I'm fine, now."

"Well, OK, but what about that hook? What happened to your hand?"

"We were in another battle. I boarded a ship and got into a sword fight.

My hand was cut off. I got fitted with a hook. I'm fine, really."

"What about that eye patch?"

"Oh, one day, we were at sea, and a flock of birds flew over. I looked up and one of them pooped in my eye."

"You're kidding," I said. "You couldn't lose an eye just from some bird poop."

"It was my first day with the hook."

Ouch!
