What kind of boat is this?

What kind of boat is this? (Photo credit: gerriet)

Today’s joke was inspired by an interesting post I read last night, written by Vastly Curious.


An old sea captain was sitting on a bench near the wharf when a young man walked up and sat down. The young man had spiked hair and each spike was a different colour…green, red, orange, blue and yellow. 

After a while the young man noticed that the captain was staring at him.

“What’s the matter old timer, never done anything wild in your life?”

The old captain replied, “Got drunk once and married a parrot. I was just wondering if you were my son.”

    Too funny, especially if you live with parrots and have a granddaughter who paints her nails black. Dianne
