Work??? Surely You Jest

Powder Monkey’s Cat’s Log, 17th June, 2014

Today the word monkey explained what a powder monkey does on a boat.  I find myself less than impressed.  Not only do those stupid monkeys expect me to do more than sit around looking adorable, but the work they want me to do involves carrying a smelly black powder and cannonballs around.

Pass…and if they think they can goad me into working by withholding fish they’ll be answering to my entourage.

That’s right, Hector and Spector are back and no shins are safe from their wrath.

    Motoko, after reading this post and learning just what a powder monkey’s job is, I am worried. I got even more worried after I read the the word monkey’s post. Did you know that pair of monkeys plan to take part in an actual battle with a pirate ship during your trip? I think you should renegotiate your contact!

    • Tank,
      Not to worry, I’ve already taken care of all that. Not only will I be in charge of the battle but I’ll be overseeing tactical maneuvers from a safe, undisclosed location ashore. Plus my contract now states I get twice my fill of fish!!! I’ll be so rich Bill Gate’s cat will be my personal valet!!!

      I can’t wait for the photo shoot!!! Just remember I don’t do nudes, my fur stays on no matter what.

    By the way, plans for your fan club are progressing nicely. I am lining up a photo shoot for you so we can send all Club members autographed digital photos of you.
