Pirates! (flash fiction)

Pirates!

 

“Well, we’ve safely sailed the Bodacious through the Nose Bender, a labyrinth of reefs. Any sign of pursuit?” the Captain asked. The First Mate looked through a spyglass in the darkness behind them.

“It’s no good Captain! Heartbreak Kid is still following us.”

“Shiver me timbers! We may just have to fight.” The Captain replied. “We’ll have to arrange a boarding party.”

“Pieces of eight!” said the parrot on his shoulder.

They suddenly froze.

“And my question to you is: in that film clip, what colour hat was the First Mate wearing?” The game show host asked the contestants.

This was a finalist in the Carrot Ranch Rodeo Mashup Contest. The objective was to combine pirates and game show tropes and include the names Bodacious, Nose Bender, and Heartbreak Kid.
