Fwd: The Trip to Italy

Trip  to Italy
A  young New York woman was so depressed that she decided to  end her life by throwing  herself
  into  the ocean, but just before she could throw herself from  the docks, a handsome young man stopped her.

"You  have so much to live for," said the man. "I'm a sailor,  and we are off to Italy tomorrow. I can stow you 
  away on my ship. I'll take care of you, bring you food every day, and keep you happy."

  With nothing to  lose, combined with the fact that she had always  wanted to go to Italy , the woman accepted. 
  That  night the sailor brought her aboard and hid her in a small but comfortable compartment in the hold.  From
  then on, every night he would bring her three sandwiches,  a bottle of red wine, and make love to her  until
  dawn.  Three weeks later she was discovered by the  captain during a routine  inspection.
"What are you doing here?"  asked the captain.

"I have an arrangement with one of the sailors," she replied. "He brings me food and I get a free trip to Italy ."

"I see," the captain says.

Her conscience got the best of her and she added, "plus, he's screwing me."

"He certainly is,"  replied the captain. "This is the Staten Island Ferry."
