A Mariner was out in a rowboat with his wife when she fell
overboard. Despite his best efforts, he couldn't find her,
so he rowed back home.
The next day, his friend showed up at the dock and said,
"Clyde, I found your wife. She got tangled up in my trap
lines and she's got thirty lobsters sticking to her. What
should I do?"
"Quick, pull off the lobsters and set her again!"
How inappropriate to call this planet Earth when it is quite clearly Ocean.
