Murdered by Pirates Is Good

Arrg! t'was them there twins birthday. And shiver me timbers they had them a party. And of course it be that X marked the spot. (Note the pouring rain, this was the weekend before the Nashville Mayday Flood. Who knew a week later you would need a boat to get around?)

It was a battle be twixt the forces of Captain Chris Moody and Captain Calico Josh. Each press-ganged them a crew of stout hearted sea dogs. The first skirmish was to protect yer own cannon ball that be attached by chain to yer leg, while destroying that of the other bilge rats.

The Captains then declared a truce and took some time to enjoy the booty their crews had brought them. Arrg, them be mighty nice bags their Sainted mother got for their gifts.

Then it be back to the battle. What else would pirates be want to do arrg, but to search for treasure. Each crew were made to scuttle like crabs and find three bags of map pieces.

It then be up to me hearties to assemble them the "treasure map" double time or the Captain be making them walk the plank.

And what be the message? "Eat your cake or walk the plank!" (Cartography by Gameboy the Puzzle Master.)
Aye! Eat cake we would, but first there was a ship to scuttle. Gangway!

Shiver Me Timbers! That be a mighty fine looking Jolly Rodger.
Happy Birthday twins!

Nope not marshmallows, lots and lots of little stars. Oh and If you make the picture larger you can see we used sprinkles too.

Notice that one twin is jolly, we decided the other must be rodger. Hee Hee!
