Cap’n Grim’s Treasure: Accuracy Happy Hours
Yer sails be rigged, yer motley crew be formed, and yer first mate Cubey stands squarely beside ye ready to set sail!
The sky be as clear as an empty bottle o’ rum and the sea be calm as ye lift the anchor and set sail. A perfect way to begin your journey to find and plunder the treasure o’ Cap’n Grim!
But as ye get lost in the thought o’ that shiny, shiny treasure, a dark spot appears on the horizon. It can’t be! Oh but it is! The S.S. Science Schmience be headed yer way!
“Yar who goes there!” a voice bellows out from the distance. Ye quickly yell out to yer crew, “Change course!” but it’s too late. The S.S. Science Schmience be upon ye.
“These ain’t yer waters ta be floatin’ upon,” the Captain yells out.
‘Tis too late to turn now so ye brace yerself for a confrontation. “Don’t worry Cap’n, we’re just passin’ through, we’ll be outta yer beard in just a moment.”
“Ah, ye be on the lookout for Cap’n Grim’s Treasure, ain’t ye?” The crew of the Science Schmience let out a hearty, synchronized bellow.
“Don’t ye know it’s all myths and tall tales! There ain’t nothin’ beyond these waters. See that over there?” The Captain gestures towards the horizon. “That be world’s end! If yer comin’ here yer stayin’ in my territory and I won’t be havin’ it. Turn back or face the consequences!”
Ye take out a model globe and a pair o’ your most studious glasses and try to explain the spherical nature of this beauteous planet ye all be inhabitin’. But there ain’t no use in talkin’ back, this crew won’t be listenin’ to reason. Ye sigh a deep sigh. Perhaps a lesson in physics will sway them. Ye must take down the S.S. Science Schmience so ye can get back on course fer the treasure!
Hoist the sails and ready the cannons, ’tis time to put yer accuracy skills to the test!
