NO ONE HURT OR UNHURT It is a gratifying fact, and
shows the most praiseworthy management and care on the part of establishment
owners, that not a man was killed or materially hurt or unhurt in the recent
celebrations in the pub located southwest of Yorkness Town during an astounding
show by PENNY WHISKEY. It seems almost incredible that such an immense crowd
could be contained In such a frenzy as was whipped up, to such a degree that
even after turning off the lights, and making loud bleating noises into the
microphone in a Vain attempt to drive the revelers home, that no one paid the
slightest Bit of Attention, and in fact began a rousing chant of "BRING
THE PIRATES TO THE FORE";

A Bagpiper in the crowd, realizing the fever pitch of excitement and sensing
the managementís growing distress at the noise, furtive fondlings, and breaking
glass, leapt to the stage and enchanted the masses with a cacophonic howl
emanating from his tool of trade, and, beckoning Furiously with his elbows while
he blew ferociously into his mighty chanter, led the party go-ers out the door
and down the Street, allowing the band PENNY WHISKEY to escape unscathed through
a rabbit hole behind the stage and allowing the owners to finally bolt the doors
and phone their Insurance Providers. The current where-abouts of the piper or
the Crowds is unkn own at this time: they were last seen rounding the corner of
Fifth and Pike, approaching the wharf, singing loudly and decidedly off key to
songs that had no resemblance or Connection whatsoever to what the brave piper
was playing. Shortly afterwards several vehicles were observed speeding to that
location containing various peoples of the local constabulary. No further word
has been received.
