The captain got stuck in the bathroom because of a jammed lock and yelled for help....The coastguard is

investigating whether the captain’s action amounted to criminal endangerment....” “Hello, Sea Queen Wheelhouse, dis is Olaf speaking.” “Olaf, dis is yew captain, I’m stuck in the bathroom. I can’t get out. Send somebody come and get me.” “Is dis a yoke? Who is dis really? I gonna get the captain.” “No, I’m not yoking, Olaf!  Dis is yew captain. Yew don’t recognize my voice?” “Vell, yew never call me from the bathroom. Always yew call me on de deck, and yew don’t never call me Olaf, always you call me ‘Godammit.’” “Godammit, Olaf, dis is the captain. Send Sven to the bathroom to get me out!!!” “Oh yah, now yew sound like de captain. Listen, I bring dis phone to Sven.
