What sort of standards are these oil tankers built on?

Oh, very rigorous, maritime engineering standards.

What sort of thing?

Uhh, the front are not supposed to fell off for a start.

What other things?

Well, there are regulations governing the materials they can be made of.

What materials?

Well, cardboard's out.

And?

No cardboard derivatives.

Like paper?

No paper, no string, no cello tape.

Rubber?

No, rubber's out. Umm... they've got to have a steering wheel. There's a minimum crew requirement.

What's the minimum crew?

One, I suppose.

Why did the front fell off?

A wave hit it.

A wave hit it?

A wave hit the ship!

Is that unusual?

Oh, yea, it's the sea - chance in a million.

...
...
...

Well, what's out there?

Nothing's out there.

Well, there must be something out there.

There is nothing out there. All there is is sea, and birds, and fish.

And?

And 20 000 tonnes of crude oil.

And what else?

And a fire.

Anything else?

And the part of the ship where the front fell off. But there's nothing else out there.

"It's a complete void."

I've watched that one several times but it's still just as funny as the first time around.
