> THE BOAT RIDE
>A depressed young woman was so desperate, that she decided
>to take her own life by throwing herself into the ocean. When
>she went down to the docks, a handsome young sailor saw her tears,
> took pity on her, and said,"Look you have a lot to live for.
>I'm off to Europe in the morning,and if you like, I can stow you
>away on my ship. I'll take good care of you and bring you
>food every day."
>Moving closer he puts his arm around her and added, "I'll keep
>you happy and you'll keep me happy."
>The girl nodded yes and thought what did she have to lose?
>That night, the sailor brought her aboard and hid her in a
>lifeboat. From then on, every night he brought her three sandwiches
>and a piece of fruit, and they made passionate love all night.
>Three weeks later, during a routine search, she was discovered
>by the captain.
>What are you doing here?" the captain asked.
>"I have an arrangement"with one of the sailors, he's taking
>me to Europe
>"Europe madam," said the captain "This is the Staten Island Ferry, "
>NOTE: (The Staten Island Ferry is a 20 minute boat ride between Manhattan
>and Staten Island which goes back and forth every hour)
