The management of this blog wishes to thank Captain Puddy for this portrait of Austin in his Johnny Depp outfit :) The amateurish embellishments are courtesy of me (and picassa)!!!
It's the International "Meow like a pirate day" today (Monday 19th)
So a (very bad) pome has been writ in celebration.
Here goes ....... Ahem!
If Long John Silver were a cat,
He'd lose the parrot and the hat.
All he wants is fresh caught tuna,
Morning, eve and afternooner.
If he had a wooden leg
He'd stand up proud, he would not beg.
Though hungry, he would spurn a carrot;
"I've got" he said "to find that parrot".
The parrot came, there was a fight
The outcome? Not a pretty sight.
Long John Cat, his fur all scruffed,
The parrot laughed, as he weren't stuffed!
There is a moral to this story
But tell the truth, tis rather gory.
Suffice to say that Long John Cat
Is no longer, ... and that's that!
