Wednesday were a one show day at Yorkeys Knob Kindergarten.
Thought we’d found the best shanghaied Dad ever. He came with his own headscarf and a silly little bit o black plastic over one eye (we fixed him up with real eye patch).
He did his “oi”s as required and as soon as actions had to be done he were doing them just like all the other children….even brought his Mum with him.
He were an obvious pick fer shanghaied groanup and didn’t disappoint EXCEPT fer photo time. Coached him on how to take a good pirate pic, Three clicks of the camera and all seems good…we went on , sang the song, did the actions and apart from his silly idea of giving all the children a prize I thought he did very well…. until I saw the third photo in the sequence. First two he looks fierce and friendly and all that a Pirate Captain could ask for in a shanghaied groanup…..then that last pic where he thought he were so funny he might have a laugh at hisself and checked to see if the Captain were looking and laughing too.
No, Pirate Pete wasn’t laughing, he were being resolutely professional and looking towards the camera with his scowling “Aarghh!” face on.
So our shanghaied Dad fell at the last hurdle and didn’t make it into Pirate Petes crew  permanently and had to go back home to stay with his family.
