...The Captain and crew were able to relax for a few days at Penguin's Point Coffeehouse while Wouterrr-rrrrr spent the time grinding the coffee beans to restock the pirate ship's coffee cans. It's a time consuming business as the mix of coffee beans and fish scales has to be just right. Too many scales and they stick to your tongue - too few and you lose that delicate saltwater aroma. Alas, the chore was done, the Captain and crew bade farewell and a few sneaky penguins stowed away in the crew's bathtub. (Seems the crew forgot they even had a tub.) It has taken a few more days to come close to their next destination. Not only did they have to brave some bad weather off the cape, the penguins kept wanting to play on all the passing icebergs. Who could say no to those little tuxedoed troublemakers...

"Captain! I think we've finally arrived in the vicinity of our next stop!" "What makes you say that, matey?" "Well Captain, that big sign sticking out of the ocean said Port Phillip - 20 kilometers." "Right! Then I guess we are approaching our destination after all. Good show, mate!" "Captain, the penguins want to go for a swim before reaching land." "Hmmm, I don't think that's a good idea. There be great whites under those waves and the tuxedoed troupe are snackwich-sized. Let them play in the bathtub and this time add water to it." "Can't Captain." "Why not?" "It leaks, Captain." "Since when?" "Since the day it was installed." The Captain now understands why no one ever used the tub...

The ship pulls into port, everyone (including the penguins) disembarks and a heading is set for the Daams Dungeon of the Doomed in Donvale. The place is hard to miss with the big blinky neon sign saying Daams Dungeon of the Doomed Donvale Division (with an arrow pointing downward) stuck on top of the hill. There must be hidden cameras too because the big metal doors slowly creak open as the crew comes in sight.

And, as Dr.Pepper and little Benny stand in the doorway, you know what happens next...

I'd like to buy the world a home and furnish it with love,
Grow apple trees and honey bees, and snow white turtle doves.
I'd like to teach the world to sing in perfect harmony,
I'd like to buy the world a Coke and keep it company.
I'd like to teach the world to sing in perfect harmony,
I'd like to buy the world a Coke and keep it company.
It's the real thing, Coke is what the world wants today.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY ERIC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Here's hoping you have a wonderful day (October 16th) filled with family, friends, clean diapers (for Benny), lots of cake and lots of pressies!!!!!! Maybe they'll let you out of the dungeon for the day. Yeah, I know. Wishful thinking.

As Dr. P looks at the crew - curious why they are singing about Coca-Cola, Captain Isa just slips into the background. The crew's harmony was so perfect this time, she didn't have the heart to tell them they had the wrong song. She wanders off whistling the Dr. Pepper song and hoping for a pub close by...
