...With the help of time-lapse photography, some super secret pirate magic and the St. Lawrence Seaway, the ship breaks through the ice of Lake Ontario and stealthily docks in Toronto Harbour. Having not been this far north before, except for Norway but how soon the crew forgets, they are reluctant to come out of their cabins. Through chattering teeth and from under the assorted blankets, a muffled sound resembling something like a tune can be heard...

生日快乐 Q'

Once again unsure of the translation (who really trusts babelfish to get it right), the crew quickly applaudes their attempt at singing to Q' and quickly disappear back under their covers. Slowly, a hand is raised from one of the bunks and a question asked... Were their pirates in Toronto? Did they leave any rum behind? Do we get to pillage something so we can stay warm? Are we leaving soon? I have to pee....

HAPPY BIRTHDAY Q'!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Here's hoping you have a wonderful birthday (May 22nd) filled with wine, women and song!!! Okay, make that one woman now that you've tied the knot. May Simone make all your wishes come true!!!!!!

...In grand Chinese style, the crew begins setting off the celebratory fireworks only to realize they should have lit them one by one rather than a box at a time. Last seen, the pirate ship was quickly sailing out of Toronto Harbour in a blaze of glory. Hopefully, someone will launch a rescue mission soon....

Nope - next tropical birthday isn't until June 9th. You'll just have to wait. Besides, we just got back from Auckland on the 18th.

..........hobbling across the poop deck of the famed pirate barge, out of the shadows, draped in a fine re-creation outfit of Long John Chestwig, comes Beerman, complete with mostly alive parrot perched on his right shoulder.........

Yaarrghhh, Q me Matey....'tis I, Beerman, Here to make Happy at ya on this, yer Most Happy of Happy Days. Yarghhhh. (parrot squawks)

So, ye fancy yerself gettin' a year older do ye? Well, ye'll have to be put through the test 'o manhood afore ye get to open yer presents fer this yar. Ye'll have to answer these 3 questions put to ye, then ye can have yer cake (if'n ye answer correctly, of course)....(parrot squawks).

    1. What be yer name?

    2. What be yer quest in life?

    3. What be the airspeed velocity through the right anterior duct fan of a Rolls Royce Eurojet EJ200 Turbofan at 32,00 feet?

Yaarrrgghhh, if'n ye answer these questions correctly, ye get to gradulate to another year. If'n ye cannot answer the questions correctly, ye have to move to Cleveland and take up the Insurance business (parrot squawks)

....and in a blindingly fast hobble for a guy with a parrot on his shoulder, Beerman assumes the helm of the pirate ship, which is headed for Florida and warmer waters........yaarghhh, the timbers be shiverin'........(parrot squawks)
