From: "E.W. Smith"

The latest from my Cajun friend alice in East Texas.

The men of Charlie Company had been in the field for two weeks when the
Sarge announces,

"I've got good news and bad news.  First the good news. Today we're going
to change our underwear."

The troops started cheering at the news.  "Now the bad news.  Smith, you
change with Jones.  Andrews, you change with Murphy..." 


Seems an elderly gentleman had serious hearing problems for a number of
years. He went to the doctor and the doctor was able to have him fitted
for a set of hearing aids that allowed the gentleman to hear 100%. The
elderly gentleman went back in a month to the doctor and the doctor said,

"Your hearing is perfect.  Your family must be really pleased that you can
hear again."

To which the gentleman said, 

"Oh, I haven't told my family yet. I just sit around and listen to the
conversations.  I've changed my will three times!"


A sailor meets a pirate in a bar, and they take turns recounting their
adventures at sea. Noting the pirate's peg-leg, hook, and eye patch. The
sailor asks

"So, how did you end up with the peg-leg?" 

The pirate replies "We was caught in a monster storm off the cape and a
giant wave swept me overboard. Just as they were pullin' me out, a school
of sharks appeared and one of 'em bit me leg off".

"Blimey!" said the sailor. 

"What about the hook"? "Ahhhh...", mused the pirate, 

"We were boardin' a trader ship, pistols blastin' and swords swingin' this
way and that. In the fracas me hand got chopped off." 

"Zounds!" remarked the sailor. 

"And how came ye by the eye patch"? 

"A seagull droppin' fell into me eye", answered 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."
