I think I would try my famous “Pirate joke.” It goes like this.

A pirate walks into a bar and the thing about this pirate is he has a steering wheel shoved down the front of his pants. You just have to picture that.

The pirate sits down and orders a beer. The bartender just tries to ignore the whole thing, but let’s face, it a pirate with a steering wheel shoved down the front of his pants is hard to ignore.

So the bartender politely says “Excuse me sir, I don’t wish to intrude, but sir do you realize you have steering wheel shoved down the front of your pants?”

“AAARRRGGHHH” says the pirate, “and it be drivin me nuts.”

Everybody laughs at that joke. Everybody.
