Yes, I know this is an old joke, but the video just makes it funnier!!!

It’s your call!

FUNNY!!!!

That was great.  I always thought the joke was sort of lame until I could actually see it acted out.

I love the joke, but it bothers me every time that the lighthouse guy never tries to say anything about being a light house earlier.  I dunno, but it’d seem like a better joke to me if the captain kept interrupting him or something. 

Wow, it kind of sucks to analyze jokes… I’ll stop now.

I’ve heard this both as a joke and as an urban myth and there is more than one version. Snopes probably knows which came first.  Also, I’m fairly certain the video was linked to on the old forum, maybe a year or two ago.

According to snopes, it seems to have started out as a joke and then became an urban myth.

Totally, Smerk!!!

You hear the big guy talking to the young guy in German (maybe?) then someone comes over the radio, “Mayday mayday, hello can you hear us?  Can you hear us, can you…::static::...over”  ::static crackles::  “We are sinking, we are sink…::blip::static::...”

German kid - “Allo?  Zis is the German Coast Guard.”

::static::feedback::  “We are sinking!”

German kid - “What are you sinking about?”
