A depressed young woman was so desperate, that she decided to end her
life by throwing herself into the ocean.
When she went down to the docks, a handsome young sailor noticed
her tears, took pity on her, and said, "Look, you've got a lot to
live for. I'm off to Europe in the morning, and if you like, I can
stow you away on my ship. I'll take good care of you and bring you food
every day." Moving closer, he slipped his arm around her shoulder and
added, "I'll keep you happy, and you'll keep me happy."
The girl nodded 'yes'. After all, what did she have to lose?
That night, the sailor brought her aboard and hid her in a life-boat.
From then on, every night he brought her three sandwiches
and a piece of fruit, and they made passionate love until dawn.
Three weeks later, during a routine search, she was discovered by the
"What are you doing here?" the Captain asked.
"I have an arrangement with one of the sailors," she explained. "He's
taking me to Europe, and he's screwing me."
"He sure is, lady," said the Captain. "This is the Staten Island Ferry."
