He called out to his men, "Raise the flag! Ready your weapons! If they want to be pirates, they can prepare for battle."

"We have no cannons and no plank, are you crazy?" muttered another soldier.

The captain put on his best fake beard and hook as the pirating vessel approaced. "Argh!!," he exclaimed.

The captain across the way could not believe his eyes. He wondered, as his ship was attacked, "Didn't they know this was a holloween comstume?"
