Too Much of a Good Thing

When the ship's cook had toothache and went to
the dentist, the crew and her captain ate at a hamburger
joint near the docks and they loved it.
As it appeared that the cook needed a new set of teeth
that would take days; the captain hired the short-order cook
at the joint. It started out so great, burgers every day,
sometimes, with cheese, bacon and eggs…always with fries.

After a week, the crew grew restless, hamburgers again!
Can't this man cook anything else? They spoke longingly
about juicy beef steaks, baked fish, pot-roast and soups,
and the short-order cook was an unhappy man.
The captain knew he had a mutiny in the making and sent
the ship's cook a message: “Teeth or no teeth you are
urgently needed, please join the ship in Panama City.
