His usual love of leg-pulling

“Shackleton, with his usual love of leg-pulling, said with a twinkle in his eye, ‘We’ll hide this stuff, go in and tell ’em you saved my life from a sea-elephant that tore your blouse off and badly wounded you—to account for the blood.’ …Of course our tale was not believed.”

— Frank Worsley
