A seasoned sailor walks into a tailor’s shop for a new uniform and mentions to the tailor that his chest is so sunken from years at sea that it’s hard to get the perfect fit.
The tailor thinks for a moment and then pulls out a small anchor.
“Here’s the solution,” says the tailor. “Just wear this anchor under your shirt. It’ll help stretch your chest out, and I can tailor the uniform to fit perfectly.”
After the fitting, the sailor is delighted with the results.
“Wow, this uniform fits like a glove!” he exclaims.
As he hands back the anchor to the tailor, the sailor gets curious.
“This anchor did wonders, but what if I had accidentally swallowed it?” he asks.
The tailor chuckles and replies, “Oh, no worries! Most sailors bring it back in a few days, just like everyone else.”
