Joke 153

24 Aug

Steve lived in Staten Island, NY and worked in Manhattan.  He had to take the ferry home every night.  One evening he found there was a wait for the next boat, so he decided to stop at a nearby tavern.  Before long he was feeling no pain.  When he got back to the ferry slip, the ferryboat was just eight feet from the dock.

Afraid of missing this one and being late for dinner, Steve took a running leap and landed right on the deck of the boat.

“How did you like that jump, buddy?” asked a proud Steve of a deck hand.

“It was great,” said the sailor.  “But why didn’t you wait?  We were just pulling in!”

    Being a life long New Yorker who worked in Manhattan before relocating, I was interested in this joke. Made me smile! 🙂 The ferry is fun to ride, used to get on with a friend of mine, just for the fun of seeing the city near water or visiting Staten Island.

I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
