"He's just a dirty sailor," he heard the women say,
As he struggled with his seabag and proceeded on his way.
Tis true he hadn't bathed in a fortnight, maybe more,
And flies refused to land on the filthy clothes he wore.

But he was still convinced there was a woman made for he,
A woman who loved old sailors regardless of the breeze.
So he kept his sextant ready and laid in a steady course,
For her waiting sighs and hugs on some distant shore.

She would be his soulmate, never having had a bath.
A lovely complement to the all the fragrances' he had.
They'd sit in the finest restaurants, and sip the finest wine,
Before they'd be requested to dine out with the swine.

She'd wipe her face upon her sleeve whenever her nose ran,
And rub her hands on her chest to make them clean again.
She'd be pretty as she sat with her knees held far apart,
Oh, she'd be the envy of every eye, this maiden of his heart.

I know what you are thinking as you hold your noses high
This isn't the kind of woman who could make a sailor sigh.
But you haven't seen a sailor who has given up the sea,
To become a reclusive poet, like old Toerag be.

At the time you first posted this autobiography, "reclusive" was as much a lie when describing Toe as the rest! LOL. But though he's become far too illusive, we KNOW the rest is YOUR story, not his! LOL

Great job, scallywag! *S*

Yeah, I think this one will get them to come a running alright.  So you really are a sailor more than a pirate cause a pirate would never let the lady sit down in the first place.

I wish I had submitted this TRUE story about Toerag for the book.  Of course, only the discerning MEN of this forum would vote for it, as all the ladies have been swooshed away with Toerag's boyish innocence.  But, I know of his rascally nature, and that's good enough for me - lol.

Belle - Are you wearing a long sleeved shirt?  I think your nose is running - lol

Mark - I find letting a lady sit down is a good move, because then she can't slap me when she catches me ogling her.

Reject - I used to believe that, now I don't know for sure.  I suppose there could be someone for old sailors and recluses, but I can't guarantee it.

no I'm not persuaded , this tale doesn't stay on course stir you wheel more steady sir navigate the course for I'm sure if there was a lady on the sea, she would be a beauty queen and as far as toerag, my dear man he would go from rags to riches, and become her pirot and find the treasure out at sea. But you did write well and gave me a laugh!

Rosebud, Rosebud, Rosebud *shaking my head sadly* - Not you, too?  Has that scalawag Toerag fooled you, too?  *tears streaming down my face as I realize the pervasiveness of that rascal*.  Don't you know that until you turn your dress inside out to hide old food stains, learn to chew tobacco and spit flies outta the air, master scratching at your backside, learn to eat with a fork in each hand, sneeze without covering you mouth, and all the other niceties that Toerag seeks, you will only be a plaything to him?  *woebegone eyes*.  Must I make my life a crusade to save these poor mislead females???  What's that?  Suthern HAS taught you those things?  Well, I guess you can get in line then - lol.

Long John,
you are a treasure... Be careful us defenders of Toerag don't bury you.

  I liked this one.  You are as funny as usual, but it seems Toerag has a loyal following.  You better watch out.  You may be forced to walk the plank.

and too good to keep to myself...{~,^}

This wasn't nice. I know the cologne you wear is named, "Catch of the Day".....and then you have the guts to post a lie like this? Trying to fix me up with one of your women? You..You are insane...(and a tad funny).....
