Ham on Wry
JONES, THE SHIP'S FIRST MATE got so drunk on shore-leave that he was totally out of it for the first day when the ship resumed its cruise. The next day while he was standing watch he glanced at the ship's log and was horrified to read: ". . .unfortunately, First Mate Jones was drunk all day." Jones sought out the Captain. "Captain, in all my years of sailing, this is the first time I have ever been too drunk to serve--do you suppose you could remove the notation from the log?"
