...The Captain and crew have traded in the Martini Blimp for the ship once again. Knowing they had a couple of days to make the trip to the new destination, they wanted to enjoy a bit of salt-sea air. Besides, that pesky Icelandic ash cloud seems to be following them everywhere they go. At least they can sail under it and avoid being covered in volcanic dust.

"Captain, where are we headed off to now?" "We have a date in Manchester." "Oohhh, are going to visit the insurance salesman again?" "Insurance salesman? I'm confused... Why would you think the next birthday person is an insurance salesman?" "Captain, don't you remember last year? We tried getting new rates from him for the ship. You know how accident prone you are."

This gift

He's got this gift, ten stories tall
