The Bath-towel of Mosey

Postby Cap'n Mitebe Lorst on Tue May 25, 2010 7:45 am

Mateys,

Oi woz plunderin’ off the northern coast of Afrik when I stopped a passin’ barque – just to ask the way like, all polite an evryfing, honest – an wen oi broke into the Captain’s cabin I was attracted to an old relic hidden in the cubbord. Turned out to be the Captain’s aged ‘n toothless wench, so that just shows oi’ve bin at sea too long.
“Well, Blow me!” Sez oi, all surprised like. Anyways, after she’d gone oi decided to ‘ave a good look around, ‘cos it were an interestin’ and anteek sort of cabin.
Underneaf the floor (Oi dropped an earrin’ and had to prise up the deck planks) I found a locked strongbox, but luckily I had me Smif n Western flintlock key which easily opened it.

Now, ‘eerz the fing, me old powder monkeys, I foun’ an old bath-towel in the box.
The towel ‘as sum faint stains on it - like marinara sauce I reckon, cuz that nivver comes out of yer clothes duz it? – an’ the stains look like the face of Pirate Mosey! Corse, oi’ve nivver seen Pirate Mosey but if oi had, then that would look like ‘im.

Me flintlock key has caused a few burns on the towel unforchunetly, but Higgs the Bosun chewed a corner o’ the towel an’ he sez, “Thars veeeeeeeery old”. Wiv e-numbers like that, I fink we ‘as proof!

Yon bath-towel must be the towel that Mosey used to wipe isself down after ee led the short-order cooks through the giant red puddle of spaghetti sauce!

Oi be bringin’ the holy bath-towel back to the “Scurvy Dog” an’ oi’ll only charge tuppence for people to ‘ave a look.

There.

I tied the holey bath-towel around the neck o' Higgs the Bosun and notted it up real tite. 'E was so delighted wiv this great honour that 'e performed the noodle dance fer us all an' showed sum luvverly colours on 'is face - but then, sumfing 'orrible 'appened, an ee fell down on the deck. 'E was gaspin' and luked as if he were dyin'!
Oi took off the holy bath-towel and mopped his purple face wiv it.
A Mirackle! Praise his Noodleyness!
Higgs the Bosun began to breathe agin. Returned from the dead.

The crew o' thee 'Wandrin' Penguin' as discuvverd anuvver unusual effect of the Bath-towel o' Mosey.
Higgs the Bosun wuz in a rapturus state after he wuz mopped by the Holey cloth, so he tuk it wiv him to the crew's munthly communal shower.
Him an' Moonin' Jacksy Roberts, the cabin-boy, 'ave found that wen the towel is damp it causes nearby aft-breeches to turn red and painful. (Oi aven't got to the bottom of this yet). It certunly has Jacksy on his toes.

But oi is now approachin' Portsmouth an' will be makin' the towel availerbull for viewin' tomorrer at 4 bells o' the forenoon watch.
Form an orderly kew and 'ave yer tuppences reddy fer collecshun by Quartermaster Pegnose.
(Thruppence fer DavidH and Ubi)
