Being stranded annoyed the crew of the Purulent Carbuncle.
“Mister Muttonhead! Where has our longboat, and our rum, gone?”
“Out to sea, sir,” the designated scapegoat stammered while scrutinizing the horizon.
“Sir, I’ve deduced three causes; poorly secured, tide, and current.”

I suspect the folks at Yeah Write dreamed up this particular prompt while knocking a few back.
Love it! 🙂
I’m pleased, thank you.
Love the names. 🙂
Just a not-too-serious-story signal, I guess. “Queen Anne’s Revenge” was taken 😛
Nice play on words in that last sentence!
Thank you. Just fishing for a grin or two.
Very clever take on the prompt. 🙂
Just hoping for a smile or two.
Doh! This is so clever!
Long as it garners a few smiles, it’s all good.
Thank you, glad you liked it.
Rum and the long boat have sailed out of the crew’s reach. now what will they do?
Swim for it, of course! (watch out for the sharks, fellas)
Purulent Carbuncle…still laughing! Nicely done.
Festering Boil was taken.
That’ll teach ’em to make sure the anchor is set!
Step 1: Pick someone not named “Muttonhead” to be in charge of the booze.
Step 3: Profit!
Well done. The nautical story succinct as anyone might wish. Sailormen don;t fuck around. I tried to get in on this one, but was to late. Nonetheless I wrote one just to keep my hand in.
Well done, Dave. I hate it when the rum floats off without me. I wonder if there’s be an opening for the Designated Scapegoat position?
There’s an opening, but the pay is awful.
