favorite this post Humble Shanty infested with Barnacles hide this posting unhide

If barnacles be to yer likin', then this be the shanty for ye. But, yar, beware, the war with the sea has escalated in the fifty-odd years since I made this home me woman, and the bitch, she has won. Bring a barnacle trap, for ye will need it. This shanty has claimed many a stouter lad than ye, and ye will be well swamped if ye be unprepared.

Yar, though there be water damage, this be a great fixer-upper. Some of the barnacles be undead. A priest recommends a sound dousing with holy water, and a purging by the eternally burning fire of Jehovah.

The previous owner recommends the place for students who want to live close to campus, families with kids, UC faculty, and NO MAN BORN OF A WOMAN SHALL LIVE HERE!

Treat her well, and she will be good to ye, as she was to me in life.

Whatever's ye finds, ye keeps. Loot to yer likin'. Loot to yer hearts desire.

cats are OK - purrr
dogs are OK - wooof
barnacles are OK - blaaaarn
