A captain and three of his crewmates are the only survivors of shipwreck. They are adrift on their lifeboat for many days until one of the crew dies of exposure. The other two crewmembers use their cutlasses to poke holes through him so his corpse will sink and not attract sharks. The remaining two crewmembers are starving. One morning when the captain wakes up, one crewmember has died and sunk. The remaining crewmember is cooking over a very small fire. “Captain! An albatross landed for long enough to be killed; we have food!” The meat, they agree, is the best they have ever tasted. Luckily, they are soon rescued. Many years later, the captain hears of a restaurant serving albatross. He orders it, but after taking one bite he goes home and kills himself. Why?
