...After watching the snow melt from the mountains of British Columbia for a few days, Captain Isa and the crew were bored to tears. "Captain, I say we make our way back to the open ocean and have a leisurely sail to our next destination." Rousing cheers of approval fill the air, echo off the mountain tops and deafen half the elk population. "I agree. Let's make sail because we have a quick stop in Hollywood before we begin this trip in earnest. As the ship navigates the Great Lakes, heads down to the Panama Canal, pays the passage fee in rum, sails up to sunny California, picks up some special friends and makes way across the bounding main...

"Margit, I'm off to do some fishing!" "Okay Sam, catch something good! You know how Malia loves fish for dinner. Don't fall in!!" And with that, the Norwegia Overlord rows out into the fjord in his little dinghy - his trusty fishing pole by his side. "I really needed this vacation. All that TP redesign work had my brain spinning in circles. Though, I thought the little stick guy logo was cute. Damn "Regulars" put a crimp in everything. Oh well... Fish. Must catch fish..."

As the Norwegia Overlord rows out to his favorite spot, he begins singing a little tune...

When the course is laid and the anchor's weighed
A sailor's blood begins racing
With our hearts unbound and our flag unfurled
We're under way and off to see the world
Under way and off to see the world
Hey ho we'll go
Anywhere the wind is blowing
Manly men are we
Sailing for adventure on the deep blue see
("Safely now, Mr. Overlord. Let's not get sloppy, just because we're singing!")
Danger walks the deck we say what the heck
We laugh at the perils we're facing
Every storm we ride is its own reward
And people die by falling overboard
And people die by falling overboard...

Just then.. The Norwegia Overlord realizes there is a very large ship parked in his favorite fishing spot and a whole bunch of someones are singing the same exact song...

All: Hey ho we'll go
Anywhere the wind is blowing
Hoist the sails and sing
Fozzie: Sailing for adventure on the big, blue wet thing
Bad Polly: I love to see 'em cry when they walk the plank
Morgan: I prefer to cut a throat
Mad Monty: I love to hang 'em high and watch their little feet try
to walk in the air while their faces turn blue
Morgan: Just kidding
All Three: It's a good life on a boat
Pirates: There are distant lands with burning sands
That call across the oceans
Rats: There are bingo games every fun-filled day
Donna: And Margaritas at the midnight buffet
Pirates: Margaritas at the midnight buffet
All: Hey ho we'll go
Anywhere the wind is blowing
Statler & Waldorf: Should have took a train
All: Sailing for adventure on the bounding main
Jim: The salty breezes whisper
Who knows what lies ahead
I just know I was born to live the life my father lead
Long John: The stars will be our compass
Wherever we may roam
And our mates will always be
Just like a family
And though we may put into port, the sea is always home
(Fozzie: "All right, Mr. Overlord! I didn't know you had such a good singing voice --- your welcome!")
Pirates: We'll chase our dreams standing on our own
Over the horizon to the great unknown
All: Hey ho we'll go
Anywhere the wind is blowing
Bold and brave and free
Pirates: Sailing for adventure
Rizzo: It's so nauseating
Pirates: Sailing for adventure
Gonzo: So exhilarating
Pirates: Sailing for adventure
Rats: We're all celebrating!
All: On the deep blue sea...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY SAM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Here's hoping you have a wonderful day (May 13th - see - got it right this time) filled with fishing, more fishing, Margit, Malia, more fishing and maybe some cocktails before cake.

With that, Captain Isa joins in with the cast of Muppet Treasure Island because it is karaoke night after all...

A lot of congrats to you Sam, you must have turned a few years older this year, because of all those happy birthdays by Isa

Anyway, enjoy Redang and surroundings with the wife and kids and make sure you enjoy the warm weather before returning home;)

I am loving thees part best......

It's a good life on a boat
There are distant lands with burning sands
That call across the oceans
There are bingo games every fun-filled day
And Margaritas at the midnight buffet
Margaritas at the midnight buffet
Hey ho we'll go
Anywhere the wind is blowing
Should have took a train
Sailing for adventure on the bounding main

Ah, is reminds Beerman of many beerthday past.....bingo, margaritas, burning sands.........I am almost get misty in the eye.

Many Happy Happy Days to you Master Overlord Sams. Please to bring many souvenir back from Malaysia to Land of Norwegia and surprise many residents and neighbors with exotic gifts from Land 'O Hien. Is better to leave durian in cargo hold, if plane will even accept rotting flesh fruit.

Oh, and yes, that will be Beermans speedo and chestwig hanging out to dry on laundry line in back yard of Daams-Peoples of Norwegia. I made stop by while Daams' were all distracted by birthing ceremonies. I was not able to leave any beer in fridge, it accidentally became consumed while watching "Norway's Most Intriguing Undergarment Models" on Channel 4. Somehow, I made forget clothing and wig. Oh, and you are out of mayo and cookies.
