A beautiful young New York woman was so depressed that she decided to end her life by throwing herself into the ocean.
But just before she could throw herself from the docks, a handsome young sailor stopped her.
"You have so much to live for,"
said the sailor.
"Look, I'm off to Europe tomorrow and I can stow you away on my ship.
I'll take care of you, bring you food every day, and keep you happy."
With nothing to lose, combined with the fact that she had always wanted to go to Europe, the woman accepted.
That night the sailor brought her aboard and hid her in a lifeboat.
From then on, every night he would bring her three sandwiches and make love to her until dawn.
Three weeks later she was discovered by the captain during a routine inspection.
"What are you doing! here?"
asked the captain.
"I have an arrangement with one of the sailors,"
"He brings me food and I get a free trip to Europe.
Plus he's screwing me."
"He certainly is,"
replied the captain.
"This is the Staten Island Ferry."
