There's an old sea story about a ship's Captain who inspected his sailors, and afterward told the first mate that his men smelled bad...

The Captain suggested perhaps it would help if the sailors would change underwear occasionally. The first mate responded, "Aye, aye sir, I'll see to it immediately!"

The first mate went straight to the sailors berth deck and announced, "The Captain thinks you guys smell bad and wants you to change your underwear."

He continued, "Pittman, you change with Jones, McCarthy, you change with Witkowski, and Brown, you change with Schultz."

THE MORAL OF THE STORY: Someone may come along and promise "Change", but don't count on things smelling any better.

Sorry folks...I couldn’t help myself but to post this joke from my amazing aunt who is nearly 80 yrs old. Obama wouldn’t stand a chance against her!

I change my underwear once a year, whether it’s needed or not.

Fooled me. I thought that the Captain imagined that the crew smelled bad because the Captain needed to change HIS underwear!

I thought it was clever. Please tell that “amazing aunt” that she made me laugh. ;>)

People don’t quit laughing because they get old... they get old because they quit laughing. Your aunt sounds like she continues to have the spark of youth.

Pop takes another shot, neat,

Points out the same amber

Stain on his shorts that I’ve got on mine, and

Makes me smell his smell, coming

From me...

There was a first mate from Australia
Who painted his a** like a dahlia;
..The color was fine
..Likewise the design,
The aroma? Now that was a failia.

Yes, my aunt is pretty amazing. Still power walks 2 miles per day, grows a garden, volunteers at hospital twice per week and church pretty much whenever they ask. Hope I have half her energy at her age. She’s nearlyl 80.

Heard it from my Dad back in the 50’s. The difference is that he used Russian soldiers for the venue. This is the first that I heard it originated with sailors, but I can buy into that theory. Thanks for the “rememberies”.
