Captain Morgashi paced the deck of his ship, The Scarlet Panther. He was in a troubled mood. All the plans were in place both here and back in Lundun, but he wasn’t feeling gud about either of them. Somthin was sure to go wrong. He had sent the men out to make a big noise in town, or rather, several big noises. They had kazoos and everthing.
Then the captain put on his schnauzer disguise and sneaked on board one of the big Navy ships to listen in sekret to the sailors talking as they swabbed the deck.
"I can't beleev that Commodore St. Wiffinton is makin us wash the deck wift water," says one.
"Wull, you did climb up that sail wift yer claws, Joe, when yu had the crazies yesterdae."
Morgashi left them to their icky task and went to listen to the petty offislers whu was lookin at a map.
"No doubt about it. When those dread pirates come after us, we is goin to whup their butts."
"George, does we have a shnauzer on our crew?"
