New Year's Eve Log Entry Contest: O Frabjous Day!

Worthy Bajou Bards and Other Honored Competitors:
The Watch (our team) says they owe it all to the four great formative
influences in their lives, Rap, Dr. Seuss, Monica & Brandy.
This morning we found this object that looks like an overweight purse (with
matching belt and shoes) stuck in the mud off our dock that jiggles when you
shake it like a bowl full of jelly. At low tide it seemed to be rolling in the
mud and moaning about quohogs and oysters. It seems to have had a bad night
of it. You do know down there not to eat quohogs and oysters shells and all?
We have two choices. Mail him back or...
We are getting pretty good up here at Cajun cuisine. Blackened pancakes being
a particular specialty of certain of our Ordinary Sea Scouts on winter camp
outs. Could you tell us is it jumbolaya or billy gumbo that contains
alligator meat? I know it isn't crawfish pie. Is there a good recipe book
In closing, I have taken the liberty of penning some doggerel in honor of the
Watch (again our combined log entry and Raid Gaulois team), the constructively
creative part of our crew:
In victory, we must be quite humble
As about the docks rhyming we stumble
Meter problems will persist
Gloves and tea, we insist
Poets y'know, yet as your basic Vikings, it seems with a 'gator we must
Cold comfort to the respected teams of Texas, California, and de Bayou
Is that when this poetry award gets around, darn, our rep's through
Aside from waterfront grapplin' with a 'gator
Gettin' a tattoo, pumping iron, and a facial later
Be aware our girls can too, splice, reef, an' steer a course that's true.
Last heard from the crew, "Ya mean it rates up there with the Nobel Prize, but
like, without the money?
My sincerest compliments to the other log entry teams: Invincible, J Walker,
Belmonster Jolly Roger and Belmonster 161. You have the Right Stuff. In Sea
Scouting, that's what really counts, not occasional jottings on paper. You
tried something new. We salute you.
"YISS," he chortled in his joy.
