George the Receipt Guy

George was a pirate, but he wasn’t a very good pirate.
Whenever he pillaged, he gave out receipts so the homeowner could claim the loss on their insurance.
And he was too much of a gentleman to do the whole raping thing.
As for plundering, well, isn’t that just another word for pillaging?
“There’s a difference,” said the captain, pulling out a pair of dictionaries. “One of these, I pillaged. The other, I plundered.”
George pulled out a thesaurus. “Pillage. Plunder, Ransack. Loot.” He snapped the book shut. “They’re all the same thing.”
The captain growled, and threw George overboard.

One thought on “George the Receipt Guy”

  1. I really enjoyed this one, but on the side of the Captain, I would like to think that pillage is more of a reckless and lazy throw things around kind of thing, and plunder is all in total devastation. While the end game may be the same, I think that the plundering Pirates may have more of a leg to stand on.
