*groan*

A chief petty officer caught an AWOL sailor as he tried to sneak aboard
ship. Upon hearing the sailor's lame explanation, the petty officer
told him, "Sweep every link on this anchor chain by morning, or it's
the brig for you!" The sailor picked up a broom, but before he could
sweep, a tern landed on the handle. The lad picked the tern off and
tossed it overboard. The bird lit again on the broom handle, and was
again tossed away. On and on, through the night, they went through the
same routine. In the morning, when the petty officer inspected, he
found the chain still dirty. "What have you been doing all night?" he
asked angrily. "Honest, chief," came the reply, "I tossed a tern all
night and couldn't sweep a link!"
