Was it the "Love Boat"?


It's sad about losing any of the sheep.

They haven't arrested the captain yet.

Seems he is on the lamb!

They are rescuing the sheep from drowning, so now they can go to slaughter!

BTW there have been large numbers of shark attacks in the Red Sea over the years. These livestock ships toss all the dead animals over the side as they're approaching port, and it's been a lamb-chop feeding frenzy for decades. We didn't have that problem in the Persian Gulf however, mostly because the local fishermen had pretty much decimated all fish stocks. Over the decade that I was scuba diving there I think I saw more sea snakes than hammour (grouper).

When asked for a comment, the owners of the ship said that they lambented the loss of the cargo.

They have now caught the captain and started questioning him. They are not happy with his responses.

Seems he is trying to pull the wool over their eyes!

Sheep dip? Wet woollies? Overturned ovines? Bad puns? What's next?

The captain fell asleep from counting sheep. I was asleep he said sheepishly.

Wonder if the captain had taken too much Lambrusco?

And was in his cabin dancing the Lambada!

Then after falling asleep he went sheepwalking!

It could be that the rudder pin sheared off!

So I herd anyway.
