A blonde was feeling so depressed that she decided
to end her life by throwing herself into the Hudson
River. She went down to the docks and was about to
leap into the frigid water when a handsome young
sailor saw her teetering on the edge of the pier
He took pity on her and said, "Listen, you've got 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 slipped his arm around her
shoulder and added with a wink, "I'll make you
happy, and you can make me happy."
The blonde nodded yes through her tears. After all,
what did she have to lose? That night, the sailor
brought her aboard and hid her in a lifeboat, along
with blankets and food. From then on, every night he
brought her sandwiches, water, wine and fruit and
they would make mad, passionate love until dawn.
Three weeks later, during a routine inspection, she
was discovered by the Captain. "What the hell are
you doing here?" the Captain demanded angrily.
"I have an arrangement with one of the sailors," she
explained. "I get free food and a trip to Europe.
Meanwhile (she says coyly) he's taking advantage of
me so to speak (wink, wink)."
"He sure as hell is, lady," the Captain said, "This
is the Staten Island Ferry."
