-- From an old carrier sailor
George, Jack and Simon were at a conference together in Chicago and they were sharing a large suite on the top of a 75 story sky scraper. After a long day of meetings they were upset to hear that the lifts
in their hotel were broken and they would have to climb 75 flights of stairs to get to their room.
George said to Jack and Simon, let's break the boredom of this horrendous climb by concentrating on something
more interesting. I'll tell jokes for 25 flights, and Jack can sing songs for 25 flights, and Simon can tell sad stories the rest of the way. At the 26th floor George stopped telling jokes and Jack began to
sing. At the 51st floor Jack stopped singing and Simon began to tell sad stories.
'I will tell my saddest story first,' he muttered gloomily, 'I left our room key in the car.'
