Any Port in a Storm

A young naval student was being put through the paces by an old sea captain tutor.

“What would you do if a sudden storm sprang up on the starboard?” asked the captain.

“Throw out an anchor, sir.” replied the naval student.

“What would you do if another storm sprang up aft?” asked the captain.

“Throw out another anchor, sir.” answered the student.

“And if another terrific storm sprang up forward, what would you do?” asked the captain.

“Throw out another anchor.” replied the student.

“Hold on,” said the Captain, “where are you getting all your anchors from?”

“From the same place you’re getting all of your storms, sir” the naval student replied.
