We are here to drink your beer!”  Direct and subtle-as-a-sledgehammer as these bacon-powered pirate core merchants provide yet more folly and jest within the confines of no-nonsense sea shanties!  These are no ordinary sea shanties me hearties, these are parrot-pumped treasures you’d find in the base of ye olde treasure chests with sunlight sparkling off… Read more »
