Got a good reason For taking the easy way out

---Today, on the Love Boat Cyber Cruise---

*clanging the plumber's helper on the ship's mast*....

PIRATES[aka ICL] !!! Dead Ahead----

[The Captain throws a bucket of water on sleeping berth]
The Sleeper:Curse you for breathin' ya slack-jawed idiot. Mother's love. Captain. You should know better than to wake a man when he's sleepin'. Its bad luck.
CAPTAIN: Fortunately, I know how to counter it; the captain who did the waking buys the man who was sleeping a drink; the man who was sleeping drinks it while listening to a proposition from the captain who did the waking.
SLEEPER: Aye, that'll about do it.
[Hootin' Anni -today known as Scurvy Gums Amy throws more water on Sleeper]
SLEEPER: Blast I'm already awake!

HOOTIN' ANNI[aka Scurvy Gums Amy]: That was for the smell.
[Then, Scurvy Gums slides her trusted plumber's helper back into the scabbard]


....and the countdown begins
