Day 7: What IS this?

This is your lunch. It bears a striking resemblance to breakfast. And last night's dinner, in fact. No one ever said the food at camp was going to be awesome, and now you know how Camp Scurvy got its name. Your task today is first to identify this meal, and then immortalize it in verse. You may choose a limerick
or a Shakespearean sonnet . Hurry now! The line to the LPR is getting rather long!

Edits: I changed my mind (like that's something new... :D). I struggle with iambic pentameter anyway, so after letting this brew for a while, I went and had a better idea.

That dish is obviously trouble brewing.
The Connotative Cook.

Saucy, salty, and boiling with trouble
You'll find, carefully placed, ev'ry bubble
Open one can of worms
Let it simmer and squirm
And then look! I am smote on the double.

When I stayed for a meal at Camp Scurvy,
I got to try their 'Leftover Slurry'.
Such an int'resting taste,
and a crunch I can't place;
Now pass the Pepto and please hurry!

I like seafood stew, but I wish
I knew what went into this dish.
And then my lips pucker
As I spot a sucker
And realize it isn't just fish!

There once was a man from Camp Scurvy,
with a recipe for poop-deck curry.

He'd take all sorts of things,
from this place and that.

Then he'd mix them together,
in his big-blue-bucket-vat.

Finally he'd turn up the heat,
and make sure it smelled just like feet.

And with a smile he'd tell you...
Bon Apetite!

Bunnylaroo, Sage

A sonnet on the chef's specialty, Creme de Low Tide

Shall I compare thee to the sea's low tide?
Thou art as smelly, more inedible.
In thee a thousand creepy crawlies hide;
A meal that's fit for neither crab nor gull.
Thine odor, vile discolored pot of mush,
Wafts all throughout the camp upon the air,
One whiff, and then with tears my eyes will gush;
The stench puckers my face and curls my hair!
None but the bravest venture for a taste,
For your ill taste cannot be soon forgot.
They say the flavor's like to sewage waste,
Boiled cabbage, peas and broccoli that has rot.
When once you've eaten what's inside that bucket,
Run to yon tree, and there behind, up-chuck it!


Hooray for Iambic Pentameter! And apologies to Shakespeare's Sonnet 18.

Makawhawla on Viridian

Mystery Soup

Can it be?
Don't you see?
It's mystery soup, I bid.
It's what I made as a kid!
Dare ye, Don't be glee.

Put some of this and some of that.
Carrot peels 'n' stems in a hat.
Put some mud and shtimp tails too.
It sparks imagination but smells like poo!
I feat it has some from the cat.

Bite your nails an' spit 'em out.
Landing in the soup, no doubt.
Beat the eggs into goo
An' add the sheell, won't you?
Then take the guts of a trout.

The FBI found me dead,
No injury to my head,
If they cut me open,
They'd find the reason, then,
That it's mystery soup instead.

Viridian Ocean, Phyre's Journal, Day 9

I haven't written in a long spell, I know. I made the mistake of trying the galley cook's Bone Soup, the other day. And then I made another mistake.... I asked for the recipe. It made me sick all over again. *gurgle*

Camp Scurvy's Famous Bone Soup

Okay, let me see, I'll start with a pea
And a handful of cheese that's been dried
Then add some brine water from the sea
I hope some fish jump in for the ride

The meat is long gone, except for the cow
And her milk is becoming quite thin
So we'll just use some skin from the sow
And toss in some shinbones from her kin

Avast! On the Nest! Do I spy a crow?
Catch it lads! We'll put it in the stew!
Feathers, beak, feet into the pot will all go
What a treat to have something to chew!

Mold, muck and weevils, nothing goes to waste
Now here is the question.... who wants first taste?


On the positive side, I now know how to get the ultimate revenge on the Cap'n, next time he orders me to "Greenie Watch"....

~ Fair Winds.... and hopefully, Smooth Sailing. For me stomache's sake.... ~

Budclare, Malachite

The cook's eyesight isn't so good. He was making Leftover Soup, but in addition to leftover food, he accidentally added leftovers from an alchemy experiment.

You gave us some grub quite suspicious,
which I find a tad inauspicious.
It looks like it might glow,
and I just want to know--
What kind of sickness would you wish us?

Day 8: Nature Walk!
Did you pack your comfy shoes and bug spray? Today we're going on a nature walk, and whatever you find in the woods, we'd like for you to use it in creating a picture of your dear old pirate granddaddy's favorite ship. Sticks and leaves, dirt and rocks, nuts and berries, use your best judgment when it comes to the items you'd likely find on a walk through the forest. (Avoid harming creatures for this doodle please.) Arrange your natural materials on a flat surface to create your picture, snap a photo, and post! If you happen to be living below the equator, where it is currently winter, we will allow artificial nature items, but try to keep it as close to authentically natural-looking as possible! (Silk flowers/plants, plastic nuts, etc. are okay, rainbow-dyed feathers, not so much.)

- Images posted should be no larger than 600 x 600 pixels.
- Host your image somewhere, and use the image tags in your post.
-Don't forget to include your pirate name and ocean.
-Reply to this post to enter.
This contest will close at midnight, in about 24 hours.

A sloop made of ferns and bark. :)

Well, not quite bark. I walked about and found some fallen trees, took the bark falling off

of them, and stripped away bits of the more pliable tender wood.

Minimal amounts of glue were used to attach the crows nest and sail.

Apparently my great(great great great great) grandpappy was a viking! Here's his long ship:



Sail: Pink and white impatiens
Mast: twig
Ship: half of a rubber tree leaf (EDIT: Just to clarify, the tree isn't made of rubber, it's a real tree called a "rubber tree" :))
Shields decorating hull: plumeria
Rudder: Boston Fern
Cannon: pomegranate

All materials came from my garden...closest thing to a "forest" around here...

Day 9: Camp Scurvy Art Exhibit!
So, we're getting close to the end of our two weeks at Camp Scurvy, and we feel the need to have a simple drawing contest. Using any of the camp mascots created on Day 2, draw a picture of him (her, or it) having a Puzzle Pirate adventure. It could be a trip to Atlantis, or a lazy day at the inn, as long as it includes a Camp Scurvy mascot in a YPP scenario, you're golden.
Please include the name of the the original mascot's sculptor - so we know which mascot your drawing is based upon. You may use your own mascot as your subject.
Hand drawn, or computer drawn, is acceptable. No screenshot/web-borrowed composite artwork. for this one.
- Images posted should be no larger than 600 x 600 pixels.
- Host your image somewhere, and use the image tags in your post.
-Don't forget to include your pirate name and ocean.
-Reply to this post to enter.
This contest will close at midnight, in about 24 hours.

Cats and water don't mix. Cardboard and water don't mix. Cardboard cats and water definitely don't mix. XD

I figured Bunnylaroo's Boxcat would have a hard time bilging if his limbs were constantly falling off and becoming very floppy in the water. His cat friend from the photo also doesn't seem to be enjoying the water.

Bernard from Armilla trying to bilge and sf at the same time. (I hope its not too big) I know, it's not that good, but I tried =x

Bilging isn't easy as a teddy bear... You have to double-jump to the handle, change into a block to get it down and then get it back up.

I did not have time to shade it or texturize it, but I thought I should post it anyway.

It's a picture of Thibaut's lime monkey, who accidentally got foraged (people thought he was an actual lime for eating).
