Brass

Postby black bart on Wed Jun 27, 2007 8:00 am

AARRRRRR, I got Bustlin Brian in to install a Thomas Crapper Deluxe model in me cabin. I don't trust Brian as far as I can throw im, which aint much more than an inch, so I tested the facility thoroughly before payin him. To my surprise it all worked nicely. It was only afterwards I noticed the pipe work looked rather familiar...there weren't an inch of brass railings left on me ship! Still, whilst it be a shame the men keep fallin overboard, I can have a bloody good **** in me cabin.

Yarr in my days we used to sail into any port, drink the town dry, ravish the wenches an escape with some booty.

Nowadays we as to radio the harbour master who'll send a tug to guide us through the shipping Lanes. If we want ter stay at a inn we as to go on their bloody website and see if they as availability afore we git there. If yer want a wench then we as ter pay in advance by credit card and they want ter see a photograph of yer as well afore theyll see yer.

yup Piracy is not what it used ter be.
The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who in the name of charity and goodwill shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know my name is the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon thee.

yarr in my day female singers were the wholesome girl next door who yer could tek home to yer Mum, olright the Liverpool accent was a bit grating but at least she wouldn't lead a poor Pirate astray.

Nowadays they av tatooes that a Portsmouth docker would be proud of and sing about going into Rehab, what is the world coming to.

yarr the old days away at sea were the best. We would settle down of an evening get roaring drunk on Rum and foine Ale, fondle the wenches and sing lewd sea shanties.

Nowadays me crew well they go off on their own with their fancy gadgets PSPs, IPODs, MP3 players etc, yer can't even get em together fer a game of cards. Sadly Piracy these days is not very socialable anymores.
