Once there were two twins, Joe and John. Joe was the owner of a dilapidated old
boat, which sank the same day that John's wife died. A few days later, a kindly
old woman saw Joe and mistook him for John.
"I'm sorry to hear about your loss. You must just feel terrible."
"Hell, no! In fact, I'm sort of glad to be rid of her. She was a rotten old
thing right from the beginning. Her bottom was all shriveled up and she smelled
like old dead fish. She was always losing her water, she had a bad crack in the
back and a pretty big hole in the front too. Every time I used her, her hole got
bigger and she leaked like crazy. I guess what finally finished her off was when
I rented her to these four guys looking for a good time. I warned them that she
wasn't very good, but they wanted to use her anyhow. The fools tried to get in
her all at once and she split right up the middle."
