A seagull crapped in my eye

A sailor and a pirate are talking each a bar. Their chat soon turns to their sea adventures. The sailor tells of his days fighting wars with the navy, and the pirate tells of robbing ships and killing his enemies. The sailor notices that the pirate has an eye patch, a hook and a peg leg, and asks, “How did you get the peg leg?”

The pirate replies, “When I was thrown off my ship and floated for two days until my crew rescued me, my leg was bitten off by a shark as I was being pulled out of the water.”

The sailor, impressed, says, “Wow! That”s very exciting. But what about the hook?”

The pirate smiles, shining the hook on his coat sleeve. “When I was sword-fighting with an enemy pirate for treasure, he took it right off.”

The sailor”s eyes are wide with awe at how tough this pirate is, and he asks, “How did you get the eye patch?”

“Well,” says the pirate, shifting in his seat a bit, “a seagull pooped in my eye.”

The sailor looks puzzled. “You lost an eye from seagull poop?”

The pirate sighs and shakes his head. “It was my first day with the hook.”
