IF - Wrinkles




When Captain Bluebird-Beard had the idea of tattooing the treasure map to the back of his first mate Cannonball thirty years ago he never thought about wrinkles.

“Arggh! I can't tell if this is a river or a wrinkle even with me bifocals yaar!”

Sorry guys this one went a bit blurry after I uploaded it for some reason, focus blogger focus.

Even pirates get old. It's the condition of their existence. *sadly shakes head* Tragic.
