Spin the Ballock Knife

Postby Cap'n Mitebe Lorst on Fri Jul 02, 2010 7:30 am

Captain Lorst and the crew of the Wanderin’ Penguin were heading toward the Admiral Benbow Tavern.
As they meandered up Penny Street the Cap’n was humming the tune they had heard aboard the Big Brenda.

Sitting at the table in the inn more and more people started to join in quietly with the tune. The drink flowed. A couple of musicians listened for a moment then began to play on squeezebox and fiddle. Under the table feet began to stamp in time to the music and at the start of each line mugs of foaming beer crashed onto the rough hewn table.
It had obviously turned into an impromptu drinking chantey.

Lorst drew out his ballock knife and placed it in the centre of the table, the tip of the blade pointing towards himself. He sang the verse that he had heard on Bert’s ship,

“Wunce oi wuz in Irelan’
Diggin’ turf an’ tayters
An’ now oi'se on a Pyrit ship
Crewed by Master…”

With a might crash of beer mugs the assembled pirates joined in with the chorus:

‘WAY haul away, we’ll haul away Joe

Lorst gripped the ballock knife and spun it. It came to rest pointing at….

… ‘Halitosis Jack’ Hackem

‘Way haul away, we’ll haul away JACK

Jack jumped up onto the table. Holding his trousers as if he was wearing a wench’s skirt he danced a little jig.

“Wunce oi wuz a farmer
Shuvvlin up tha muck
But now oi lives a pyrits loife
An’ cuddent give a …"

… Quartermaster ‘Pegnose’ Throgmorton.

‘Way haul away, we’ll haul away PEGS

Throgmorton scowled at the crew. He was already on his ninth beer and was becoming a bit morose.

“Wen oi wuz makin’ up this verse
Oi thort, It’s chust a farce
Oi’m tired o’ havin’ ter join yer games
So shuv it up yer…"

‘Way haul away, we’ll haul away Joe

Most of the other customers in the Benbow were now squeezing in to have their turn.

Calico Jack!
Jack flew down from the rafters to sing his little ditty.

"Way haul away, (Ack), we'll haul way JACK!

Ruffling his feathers Jack quickly sang

"I've come to steal all yer wemmins..
Ye can't stop me, nay, even if ye try.
For I'm a fine bird O'the feather...
And yer wemmins have such a loverly...."

Jack spun the knife with his beak, and quickly flew away when it pointed to....

Black Bart.

"Way Haul Away! We'll Haul Away Bart!"

Bart tottered in from the privy, buttocks clenched, his legs motionless above the knees, as if they had been tied together (or he was wearing a pencil skirt, to each their own).

"A life at sea's the one fer me,
Blowin' Frenchies an' Spanyerds ter bits!
Takin' their wemmins (ACK!) an' plundrin' their gold,
Except when Oi've got me thee..."

Bart spun the knife. It came to rest pointing at...

H waved his mighty red hat and let forth a thunderous peal of flatulence which stunned the weevil on Bart's shoulder.

... Ham Nox

A little shocked, since she wasn't up in the front or anything, but she's had enough to stumble over and try.

"Oi've lived heer me 'ole damn life
Bot oi know me knots 'n hitches
The last crew laufd at me applicashun
So oi toid 'em up all thum ...."

Way haul away, we'll haul away Ham

Ham delicately reaches across the table and flicks the knife into a spin, then skips away into the crowd.

Twisty Puss who after shaking her finger at Ham and yelling "WATCH IT MISSY! YOU COULD PUT SOMEONE'S EYE OUT WITH THAT THING!!" pushes her way through the crowd, goosing all the men she passes.

"Way haul away, we'll haul away Twisty."

"Although I'm not very good at pirate speak
and I wear leather panties on my head,
My cookies taste good seven days a week
and I've been told I'm great in ......"

And sings o' the Good Ship Venus;
But even Oi will stop, at least,
At thee loine about thee captain's ..."

Swinging his shantyman's fiddle around his head, Tarse cleared a space and span thee knoife. He was long gone when it slowed and stopped, pointing right at none other than...
