punning again

Postby Bailey » Thu Aug 09, 2007 7:07 pm

The engineer of a train passing through Poland could see no lights because the power had been knocked out by a severe ice storm.

"We're running out of coal," he said to his trainman, "but I think we're coming to Gdansk or Danzig, or whatever they call it now. Let's stop and send the porter out to buy some more fuel."

The train stops and the trainman gets out to investigate.

"Can you see a sign on the depot that says Gdansk in this dim light?" calls the engineer.

The trainman replied, "It appears to be Danzig in the dark."

And the engineer shouted, "Buy coal, Porter!"
