Ok quick story - the tall ships were in Leith a few years ago, I had just arrived back from sea and went through to see them with Mrs Satanic. Due to some sort of travel mix up the Roald Admunsen was advertising for crew at a price of 250 quid a skull, I always fancied giving it ago and went to inquire. Mrs Satanic was none too impressed
"Firstly your just back from sea" she nagged
"I know" I replied
"and secondly - why do they want 250 quid" she nagged even more
Exasperated I pointed at a very large three masted square rigger and stated
"THESE THING DON'T RUN ON FRESH AIR YOU KNOW"
I think most of Leith stopped and laughed.
Defeated I returned to the car(Jester)
