Ahoy and welcome to the pirate adventures of Captain Ignatius Pigheart and his valiant crew, as they battle sea beasts, other boats, drink and incompetence. Many of them are sadly fallen. These tales are not for the faint hearted or chickenish of complexion – within ’em yer very soul may teeter on the brink o’ madness. I should know, for I’ve lived through ’em with nary a soft spot unscarred. Nonetheless I’m an upbeat pirate, despite me lack of direction, oceanic-know-how and dismal crew o’ rejects.

No doubt ye’ll laugh at our endeavours. But next time ye face a titanic turtle or the stone-facin’ fear of a gorgon, or find ye surgeon’s round the twist, think ye of the crew of the Good Ship Lollipop and the Grim Bastard. ‘T’will bring ye some cheer at least.
