The Battleship Banter

On a dark night the captain of a ship saw faint lights in the distance. Envisioning a possible collision he immediately told his signalman to send a message to the oncoming ship. “Alter your course ten degrees south.” Promptly a return message was received. “Alter your course ten degrees north.”

Angered by the fact that his command had been ignored, the captain sent a second message. “Alter your course ten degrees south. I am a captain!” Soon another message was received. “Alter your course ten degrees north. I am a seaman third class Jones.”

Immediately the captain sent a third message, knowing the fear it would evoke. “Alter your course ten degrees south. I am a battleship!” Then the reply came. “Alter your course ten degrees north. I am a lighthouse.”
