Ladies, gentleman and traps, this is your captain speaking. The weather's great, not a single cloud in sight, and we're making great progress on our nautical journey. Right now, we're not really sure where we'll be heading, but we just left port anyway. In the meantime, do pop by our bar, and try out our new cocktail. Just don’t call the blonde guy in the bartender outfit, “bartender”. He hates it, and he’ll hit you with a vending machine.
You have been warned.
