Lame Joke: The South Pacific Collision

Don't say we didn't warn you!

Two cargo ships collided head-on in the middle of the South Pacific. The cargo of the eastbound ship contained machine parts, hand tools and 135,000 gallons of red paint.

The westbound ship was loaded with computer parts, electronic testers and 37,000 gallons of brown paint. Thanks to superior survival training, not a man or officer was lost, even though both ships split apart and sank to the bottom.

The question is, what happened to the survivors before their rescue three days later?

The answer: They were all "marooned"!
