    Arggg. I think me thromborax is avastly broken for when I command the scurvy scum to swab the decks at me house, instead of gettin’ an aye aye cap’n, I get a horrified look of disgust from the brazen crew. What say ye? Shall I keep exercising me thromborax or simply make the heathens and wenches walk the plank?

    Good stuff today, Lynn. Wish I’d have know about this a little sooner in the day though. Kind of late now to be enjoyin’ it.
