Re: The Problem with Boat Names & Double-Enders
This was no accident. Around here, Boat Names often are Calligraphed to the max- the previous owner of my Boat used a Tiki Font. However, the Home Port is usually in bog-standard Block Print. (There may be some obscure CG regulation on this point.) Anyway, this calls for some doggerel:
From the "Virgin Islands", hails "Inspired Insanity"
A name chosen not for superficial profanity
A visual pun, seen as "Inspired Virgin"...
...Inspiration often leads to a Virgin urgin'
To be not a Virgin evermore
On the Insanity Islands' lonely shore.
There, you can have quite a bender
Triple Sec on a singles' Double Ender
A Virgin dreams not of triple decks
A Virgin dreams often of Triple Secs
On that lonely Insanity shore
They dream of more, and more, and more.
Mourning comes with morning bright
Dreams fade out with the night
Time to make the ship ship-shape
Hose and sponge and often scrape
And while dealing with assorted pains
Just _what_ are _those_ Gelcoat stains?
