Whodunnit: ‘Mate, That’s Not True’

GDJ Vintage Cruise Ship

The captain of a ship flying the Japanese flag sailing across the Pacific takes off his expensive solid-gold chain and bracelet and goes to take a shower in the crew quarters.

When he comes out ten minutes later, he finds the chain and the bracelet missing

He summons the rest of the crew sharing the quarters and asks them their whereabouts during the time he was in the shower.

The cook: ‘I was in the cold room to pick up meat for lunch.’

The engineer: ‘I was in the engine room to check out things.’

The helper: ‘The flag on the mast was upside down. I was setting it right.’

The mechanic: ‘I was resting in my bed after the night shift.

How did the captain spot the liar right away?


As always, it’s given away in the ‘Comments’.
