The Ocean Pearl

An elderly couple was on a small cruise ship. They were standing on the back of the boat watching the moon, when a freak wave came up and washed the old woman overboard. Rescue teams searched for days but couldn’t find her. The captain promised that he would notify the old man as soon as they found something.
Three weeks went by and finally the old man got a fax from the captain. It read: “Sir, I am deeply sorry to inform you, we found your wife on the ocean floor. When we recovered her remains, there was an oyster attached to her bottom, and inside the oyster was a pearl estimated to be worth $50,000. Please advise.”
The old man faxed back: “Send me the pearl and re-bait the trap.”
