A New Pirate
All his life, Pedro had wanted to be a pirate. And when he got the opportunity to interview for a position on a pirate ship, he was overjoyed.
Arriving at the quay, Pedro and the other pirate hopefuls stood around and waited for the captain to call them one by one on board for their interviews.
The captain emerged, but much to Pedro’s surprise, instead of conducting individual interviews one-on-one on board the ship, the captain bid all of the contestants to stand in a straight line, and he would come and ask them each questions, right there at the dock.
“Aye, Cap’n!” the interviewees responded loudly, all but Pedro.
Pedro was visibly upset, so the interviewee behind him in line leaned over toward to him and asked, “Ey, wot’s the matter with you, lad?”
Pedro replied, glumly “I didn’t know there was going to be an aye queue test!”
