Ghost Ships

Q: Where do ghosts like to go sailing?
A: Lake Eerie!

Explanation: If you ever get the chance to go sailing, I would highly recommend it.  It is a beautiful experience to let the wind move your boat without using a motor.

Ghosts, of course, like places that are scary or frightening.  The word eerie means strange or frightening.  An eerie experience might be sitting alone in a dark house, hearing strange sounds, and seeing faint lights that look like ghosts.

Lake Erie is the 4th largest of the Great Lakes in North America.  I have never seen it, but the pictures sure look nice.

This joke is funny because it plays with the words eerie and (Lake) Erie which sound exactly the same.

Here is the song Sailing by Christopher Cross to take you on your journey:
