My eye-patch, sword (glow in the dark, natch), and bottle o' rum are shipshape. But my parrot -- a mangy-feathered grog guzzling bilge-rat of bird if ever there was one -- will not hold fast.
Tried so far: elastic (unfortunate effect on puffy pirate shirt) and carrying parrot (could be awkward if need to swill rum and wield sword concurrently).
Particulars: parrot is about the size of a budgerigar, weighs about 150 grams and is made of plastic.
Pirate is mid size wench planning night of adventure
on the high seas at the local tavern in company of like-minded privateers, tomorrow.
I will not be keelhauled or leaping about the rigging. So no naval-standard knot work needed. I hope.
I would like keep my brand new, rather nice and quite expensive shirt in decent condition. Superglue and tar are out.
Heave-to, haul away and a barrel of rum to the sea-dog who fixes firm the pox-faced beastie to its buccaneer.
