When the cruise liner Costa Concordia ran aground last Friday rescuers wondered why Captain Francesco Schettino was one of the first people off the ship. Certainly this is a captain who doesn’t live by the motto, “The Captain Always Goes Down With His Ship”. Anyway the good captain says he fell overboard, and get this, right into a life boat. Now that’s funny! Even if it’s true that’s funny. It kind of has a certain George Costanza type quality about it.
