The New World, brunchtime. - Reclusive American pirate, and erstwhile Captain of HMS Buggerall, Morse has been spotted by SI6 (Spoof Intelligence 6) agents skulking around the fringes of satirical website theSpoof.com.
Since the rip roaring success of Morse's pirate extravaganza concept, 'Below Decks' the skipper has been conspicuous by his absence.
Some reports suggest that the skipper has been finding recent news too dreadful to spoof, others that he has been playing a lot of golf lately.
However SI6 were able to track down his movements as recently as yesterday. An agent told us:
"We were debugging the website when we came across these carbon footprints. Lab analysts confirmed there was a one in ten billion chance that they did NOT belong to the legend that is Morse. It seems he was in disguise, testing the water so to speak, keeping a low profile and his head below decks. But it was him. We're sure of it."
Spoof Spontaneous Health Adjustment Officer, Anthony 'Itchy Trigger Finger' Garandolfo told us:
"Hey, I'd love to see the Cap back here. Any escape from dem Susan frickin' Boyle stories dat seem so popular dese days would be welcome. I'd pipe da Cap aboard mysef."
More as we get it.
