Yarrrrrgggggghhh! Ahoy, we set sail for the TP adventure of a lifetime. We, the suppressed 'working' class have boarded our nearly large enough raft with a poor looking sail and hope to make it to the next town... and then its on to Bermuda! Why Bermuda... well we probably won’t make it judging by the look of this 'raft' but never mind that. All aboard! Please remember to keep a weight balance as these 50 gallon drums are the only things keeping us afloat (gee, might want to find some new ones... over even a suitable sailing vessel). That and the large tankards of booze we just commandeered from the local tavern. Who's with me?

We're sailing North, South, East, West
and over the Irish sea!
A bottle of rum
to fill my tum
and that's the life for me!

We're rascals, scoundrels, villans, and knaves,
Drink up, me 'earties, yo ho.
We're devils and black sheep, really bad eggs,
Drink up, me 'earties, yo ho.

Aaaarrrggghhhhhhh!!!!!!! Count me in on this voyage!! Do we get to pillage and stuff if we make it to Bermuda or even the next town? Ooooohhhh.... It looks like the raft is sinking quite quickly... Lagered - using full 50 gallon barrels of beer probably wasn't the smartest idea. What happened to all the wood casks for the beer? I bet you sold them to Jack Daniels so you could buy this sad so-called raft. Seems you got the short end of the stick from that scurvy dog. What are we suppose to do with these paddles? Where are the sails? (Thank God T went to dragonboat practice last night. At least one pirate knows how to row, row, row this "boat".)

Isa wanders off to find her tricorn with the pretty red and blue feathers, a pirate deck chair and a bottle of rum...

I did have DB practice--and now my Pirate arse is killing me! Dang wooden benches. Someone get me a Pirate donut pillow so I can whip these lazy rowers into place! Hee-ahh!

Yarrrggggh! Aye, we need to drink up the full beer barrels to assure we stay afloat or we'll have to plunder the hillsides (or local home depot) for other floatation devices. Yes, they paid some decent money for the wood kegs but i'm afraid the raft is all we have. The sails are made of beer lables sewn together but we'll pick up some real sails down the river in a post bartime raid of 'sails are us.' although she's a bit rough, the 'Spirit of the Cha' is seaworthy unless you go asking those pesky department of natural resources and other water patroling agencies. Nevermind them, they're just jealous of our quest! No worries mates, they'll come to know the pirates of the party barge brigade soon enough.

now, take everything and give nothing back! Ahoy!

Raise the Rudder and Shiver Me Giblets.
Be thankful it's 2008 amd not 1808 when the Royal Navy had a penchant for Rum, Sodomy and the Lash (or was it rum, bum and baccy?)
No 'Golden Rivet' jokes please

Yes, I think we can all be glad for that. However, what you do while plundering the hillsides when stop is your own business. Just make sure you make it back before we set sail again.

Forget the Golden Rivet! The way the Spirit of the Cha is taking on water (or should I say, sinking beneath it), the rivet will be long gone before anyone finds it. We really need to drink more beer to keep this sad sight of a sailing vessel afloat!! We're also running out of beer labels making repairs of the sail a bit more difficult. (Who knew we had a crew of beer label collectors on board.) I was so looking forward to the Golden Shellback initiation but we'll be lucky to make it to Miami Beach. Can we mutiny yet??? I think putting Lagered up in front of King Neptune's court could be fun!! (Shotgun!!!)

Guess wotthefiqh is in charge of the music since he's the only one who brought a CD along.

Isa wanders off again, humming the tune to Navigator...
