An elderly couple was on a cruise when suddenly a fierce storm descended on the ship.
They were standing on the back of the vessel, watching the moon, when a wave came up and washed the elderly woman overboard.
They searched for days and couldn’t find her, so the captain sent the elderly man back on shore with the promise that he would notify him as soon as they found something.
Three weeks went by and finally the elderly man got an email from the boat.
It read: “Sorry to inform you, but we found your wife dead at the bottom of the ocean.
“When we brought her body up on to the deck we found, attached to her butt, an oyster which had in it a pearl worth $50,000. Please advise”
The elderly man replied:
“Send me the pearl and re-bait the trap.”
