The Captain of a Canadian Ship in Esquimalt was about to start the morning briefing to his Staff.

While waiting for the coffee machine to finish its brewing, he decided to pose a question to all assembled.

He explained that his wife had been a bit frisky the night before and he failed to get his usual amount of sound sleep.

He posed the question of just how much of sex was ‘work’ and how much of it was ‘pleasure?’ The X.O. chimed in with 75-25% in favour of work.

A Lieutenant (N) said it was 50-50%. The Captain’s Aide, a Sub Lieutenant responded with 25-75% in favour of pleasure, depending on his state of inebriation at the time.

There being no consensus, the Lieutenant turned to the Leading Seaman who was in charge of making the coffee. What was HIS opinion? With no hesitation, the young Leading Seaman responded, “Sir, it has to be 100% pleasure.”

The Lieutenant was surprised and, as you might guess, asked why?!?

“Well, Sir,” began the Leading Seaman, “if there was any work involved, the officers would have me doing it for them.”

The room fell silent.

God Bless the Canadian Navy.


Got something to say?
