"Prosthetic leg lost at sea, returned to owner",.. darn, for a second there I thought this was a "Lassie come home" saga. Or a case of smart leg homing device. I guess roboblogger saw no need for the clarification "was" returned to owner.

An ideal alibi for the other woman, who was using it to beat over the head, would be "no, wasn't me, my leg was lost at sea".

last time I saw the movie it is in the Croc along with the clock ..........

Hook wears a big iron hook in place of his right hand, which was cut off by Peter Pan and eaten by a saltwater crocodile, who liked the taste so much that she follows Hook around constantly, hoping for more. Luckily for Hook, the crocodile also swallowed a clock, so Hook can tell from the ticking when she is near.
