An elderly couple was on a cruise and it was really stormy.
They were standing on the back of the boat watching the moon,
when a wave came up and washed the old woman overboard.
They searched for days and couldn’t find her, so the captain
sent the old man back to shore with the promise that he would
notify him as soon as they found something.
Three weeks went by and finally the old man got a fax from the
boat. It read: “Sir, sorry to inform you, we found your wife dead
at the bottom of the ocean. We hauled her up to the deck and
attached to her was an oyster and in it was a pearl worth
$50,000 .. . ..please advise”
The old man faxed back: “Send me the pearl and re-bait the trap”
