...Following several hours of drinking brennivin in massive quantities, the crew of the pirate ship totally forgot Beerman's warning - eat the pepperoni instead of the rotten shark and pickled ram's testicles. Oops. Captain Isa has now had to wait several days for everyone to recover from food poisoning - blaming the rotten shark part of the meal. (Thankfully, she chose the pepperoni because she doesn't like fish even when it's not rotten.) Believing the ship would still arrive at it's next destination with time to spare, everyone waves farewell to Iceland. The trip across the Atlantic is uneventful, the navigator actually found Gibraltar, turned left, sailed the Mediterranean Sea and paid the Suez Canal toll with the remaining barrels of brennivin (since none of the crew ever wants to see that stuff again). Believing even more strongly that pirates around the globe would respect and stick to the Pirate Code, the Captain and crew expected no trouble as they exited the Red Sea to continue their journey. Someone didn't get a copy of the code... For several hours the ship was chased by high speed boats, circling around and around and around and around and around the island of Sucutra. Thankfully, the Somali pirate dinghies finally ran out of gas and TP pirate ship made it's getaway. Several more hours later, the ship reaches it's destination in Thailand. "Captain, that was a close call back at the Horn of Africa! I'm glad they had very small gas tanks." "Too right, mate! Someone contact the Pirate High Counsil and tell them those guys need copies of the Pirate Code Book. Didn't they see our Jack Rackham (Calico Jack to his friends) pirate flag?? I mean really! There's just no respect anymore. Well, we made it here and that's what counts. Ready crew?"

And as the crew disembarks, they... Never mind - you know what's coming...

Well he sneaks around the world from Kiev to Carolina,
He's a sticky-fingered filcher from Berlin down to Belize,
He'll take you for a ride on a slow boat to China,
Tell me where in the world is Yiren Zhang?

Steal their Seoul in South Korea, make Antarctica cry Uncle,
From the Red Sea to Greenland they'll be singing the blues,
Well they never Arkansas him steal the Mekong from the jungle,
Tell me where in the world is Yiren Zhang?

HAPPY BIRTHDAY YIREN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Here's hoping you have a wonderful birthday (February 21st) wherever you are!!! May it be filled with friends, family, food, more food, drinks, and even more drinks. Oh, and hope you get lots of new atlases to read as gifites!!!

As the crew tries to figure out where in the world is Yrien Zhang, Captain Isa heads off to call the Pirate High Counsil about being chased around in circles for no good reason.... That's after a few tankards of rum, of course....
