Wait... what's that I see off in the distance. Is it...? Yes! It's Crocket and Tubbs (aka Mikey and Jase, aka the Two Musketeers, aka the ambiguously g-- never mind).

With those whitey-white suits and pink t-shirts with sockless loafers, looks like they're on a quest to catch our Pirate ship. Quick! Man the... you know, the gun thingies. All hands on deck! Someone cue a Foreigner song!

there shall be no such mutiny on this boat!

(lagered stumbles and falls onto his Captains chair after aiding beerman in the quest to lighten the raft by drinking ourselves to safety. After realizing they had only just begun the party by the time the safe level had been reached, they continued until they were able to take on the Miami Vice themed dressed duo of Mikey and Jase whom made it on despite tways desperate efforts to fend them off with various pool toys called 'noodles.' For some reason wotthefigh continues to hum pirate songs or the theme to mission impossible. While performing the sacred task of keeping the vessel afloat beerman added a rudder while tapping keg "floatation device" thus greatly improving the steering capability of the Spirit of the Cha. Luckily enough, once on board the white jackets of the Miami Vice duo proved to be adequate sail covering to get us further down the channel)

Okay - the mutiny is on hold after that valiant (and mostly successful) attempt to keep the Cha from becoming just more trash lying around on the bottom. I still look better in my feathered tricorn than whatever it is that you are wearing on your head right now. Are those someone's tighty-whities?? Oh Lagered, have you no self-respect?? Bet you don't even know where that underwear has been. Then again, since they are now on your head, maybe you do... (Eeewwww!!!!)

I'm sorry to report that we have had to "lighten the load" by tossing Tubbs' (Jase's) floozies over the rail. Okay, not really a rail since this is only a raft, after all. But, they are now dog-paddling their way back to shore. (They didn't want to be late for the next episode of "American Idol" so they just had to go. You just can't trust Tubbs to leave the floozies at home.)

Wotthefiqh humming the "Mission Impossible" theme? Never!!! Last heard, he was humming ABBA's "Dancing Queen" and trying to get Beerman to dance. Anyone have a copy of Waltzing Matilda? (Beerman doesn't like ABBA.)

Well, not so much a ship as an overloaded pile of driftwood lashed together with baling twine, floating on beer barrels and using 1980s (Miami Vice) white linen as a sail. But, we call it home!

Oh Rob judging from Isa's description of the "pirate ship" lm not so sure l want to get on it - not very watertight by the sounds of it and as for the "characters" to be found on board - dubious to say the least - SO can l catch a lift on your frigate - l'll bring my whip!!!!!!

I may want to "jump ship" too!!! Since it's a Naval frigate, I have a better chance of earning my Golden Shellback status. (Never been across the equator at the 180th meridan.) Plus, I have this lovely tricorn with red and blue feathers. Perfect for every naval occassion. I don't swab decks or wash porthole windows, though. I do make a mean "shit on a shingle" - okay, it's just chipped beef or hamburger in gravy over toast. Still tastes good! (I also know where to get a few extra bottles of rum....)

Rob, I shall board the navy frigate as well. I'm not boarding that raft where the sail is actually made from their used-and-unwashed-tighty-whities-(which explains the multiple holes)-but-claimed-to-be-beer-labels sewn together.
