A pirate walks into a tavern and the tavern master says, "Hey, I haven't seen you in a while. What happened? You look terrible!"

"What are yeh meaning?" the pirate replies, "I find meself fine."

The tavern master says, "But what about that wooden leg? You didn't have that before."

"Well," says the pirate, "me an' t' shipmates were under fire from t' Queen Anne's Revenge one night when this cannon ball comes along an' blasts me leg clean off. One Legged Billy whittled me this wooden leg and once I was used to it, I found meself thinkin' it's just as good as t'other one, really."

"Yes," says the tavern master, "But what about that hook? Last time I saw you, you had both hands."

"Well," says the pirate, "two months after I lost me leg, me an' me shipmates boarded the ship of t' Dread Pirate Roberts. After some time I found meself crossing swords with Roberts himself an before the fight was over me hand was sliced clean off at the wrist. Captain Jack rigged this hook up fer me, and I found that in time I got used to it, really."

"Oh," says the tavern master, "What about that eye patch? Last time you were in here you had both eyes."

"Well," says the pirate, "One day when we were at sea, some o' them nasty gulls were flying over the ship. I looked up at that moment to shout to Scurvy Pete as he were in the crow's nest, and one of them shat right in me eye."

"So," replied the tavern master, "what happened? You couldn't have lost an eye just from some bird shit!"

"Well," says the pirate, "I wasn't quite used to me hook yet."
