A shipwrecked sailor spent several years on a deserted island. One morning he was thrilled to see a ship offshore and a small boat pulling out toward him!
When the boat arrived, its occupant handed the marooned sailor a bundle of newspapers and said: “With the captain’s compliments. He said to read through these and let us know if you still want to be rescued.”
Why is it unwise to share your secrets with a clock? Well, time will tell.
