Pirate Pete “does a hammy”

You wouldn’t think Pirates and footballers have a lot in common but this Pirate felt like a footballer today when he “did a hammy” (strained a hamstring muscle fer the non footballing readers). The Captain were executing a move, with enthusiasm, as is his way when the carpet moved under his boot during a show today. Unlike a footballing princess he weren’t carried off on a stretcher or medicab but secretly helped hisself to a slug or two of rum and carried on as if nothing happened. He whinged plenty when he arrived back at his ship…but no sympathy did he find there……just a tube of Deep Heat…….sigh!
