Default What's the funniest thing you heard?

Want to start an interesting post to see where it take us.

Tell us about the funniest thing you heard while on the ship? Make us laugh!

The old standard, which many CD's even work into their routines....
Does the crew sleep on the ship? I would love, just once, to see that answered by "no", without an explanation.

An Asst't Cruise Director on the Miracle 9/07, very young they called him Pee Wee. He sang this song one night during Bingo, I never forgot it. As I was getting off the ship to go home, he was by the line bidding us all farewell. Jokingly, I started singing it, then he chimed in, and then a whole lot of other people started singing (and we're all grown ups):

There's a booger in the sugar, no it's not
There's a booger in the sugar, no it's not
Oh I had a bunch for lunch
And I thought I heard them crunch
There's a booger in the sugar, no it's not[/u][/i]

I heard a lady yelling at her 3 year old if he didnt behave she was going to have the captain turn the ship around and make the kid walk the plank into the shark infested waters. That kid piped down real fast...

Every once in awhile the cruise director will list dumb questions...allegadly actually inquired by passengers. Then they gave the sardonic response.
guest =[i]"Does the crew sleep on the ship?"
crew ="Nope they swim from shore every day" :evil:

guest=Does the ship generate its own power?"
crew="No there is this REALLY long power cord" :evil:

guest=What becomes of the ice sculpture after it melts?"
crew= " We refreeze the very same water for next week" :evil:

guest=
What time is the midnight buffet?"
crew="For people like you... 2am" :evil:

guest=[i]"How far are we above sea level"
crew="if you are on the Lido deck you are about 10 decks " :evil:

I've noticed that they tend to repeat these sayings or questions from ship to ship. Almost like they are scripted for all CD to use. I wish they would be original and come up with new stuff.

Just like the newlywed game, same questions asked on every cruise. It would be better if each ship had different questions.

Well, for the newlywed game, I would think you would only go once anyway. Just teasing.

Oh yes, everything is very much according to script and each ship utilizes the same basic script. The newly-wed/not so newly-wed game never changes. Every man gets asked are you a "stretched limo", a "dump-truck" or a " Volkswagen Beatle with one flat tire".
Get's me every time !

Funny how you can pick up the familiar melody just from the words. This is one that will stick with me a long time.

Oh so your a VW Beetle but without the one flat tire.? I drive a Toyota Corolla which has a mini spare tire. The innuendos can go on forever from there.
To be completely honest, I look into a mirror and see a dump truck,...an old beat up, well driven, dump truck. It would cost a fortune in plastic surgery to make ME into a slick sports car.

Troth,

I'm with you. I consider myself a dump truck, well used, well cared for by a loving spouse. I still clean up pretty good but it would take both of our 401(k)s to make me a sports car. But you know what, as my Daddy once said, "somebody has to carry the load" so I guessa dump truck isn't all that bad

Oh I don't know they always ask the guy that car question. Maybe they should consider being an equal opportunity offender?

Carnival probably doesn't want them to deviate from the script lest they get too risque.

What's that Katlady, I was blinded by your headlights

Back to the newlywed game and other CD canned lines. Perhaps the Carnival brain trust could get together and increase the pool of acceptable lines. OR they could just trust their brains.

Lines from recent Southwest flights:
During pre-flight. "If you press the button with the light bulb, this will turn your reading light on. If you press the button with the flight attendant, this will not turn your flight attendant on."
Upon weight on wheels: "If your happy that you landed clap your hands <clap> <clap> <clap> ...

Well this didn't happen on the ship....but we were on a family cruise on the Fantasy(my wife & I, two sons and 91 year old motherin law) and returning from the Atlantis in a taxi. Remember in Nassau, they drive on the right....so we are packed in this van...wife and I in first row, Mother in law in 2nd row.....and zipping thru town as only taxi drivers can do....it's quiet in the taxi....when all of a sudden my Mother in Law yells out...."MY god man....where is your steering wheel?"....we still tease her about it.....
