An elderly couple were on a cruise and it was really stormy. They were standing on the back of the boat watching the moon, when a wave came up and washed the old woman overboard.
They searched for days and couldn't find her, so the captain sent the old man back to shore with the promise that he would notify him as soon as they found something. Three weeks went by and finally the old man got a fax from the boat. It read: "Sir, sorry to inform you that we found your wife at the bottom of the ocean. She had passed away. We hauled her up to the deck and attached to her backside was an oyster and in it was a pearl worth $50,000. Please advise."
The old man faxed back: "Send me the pearl and re-bait the trap."
A man went to his doctor and said, "Help me, doctor. I think my eyesight is getting worse."
The doctor asked the man to look out the window. "Tell me what you see," he said, pointing.
"I see the sun," the man replied.
The doctor turned to him and asked, "Just how much farther do you want to see?"
