Once upon a time there was a Captain who sailed the high seas in his peapod. His name was Captain Legume and he had a beard like a turnip's tail. He dreamed every night to be a buccaneer, saving sad, stray vegetables that slipped down the plughole. One day, as he sailed across the sink, a courgette bobbed up beneath his peapod, almost capsizing him. His pea crew scuttled under the peapod to save the poor courgette from the sucking of the plughole. At last the heroic peas triumphantly launched the courgette onto the draining board and saved the day!
