“Hang in there Sven” said Ken “Just a few more yards to go.”
Ken breaks into song: ♪ ♪ ♪ My clothes are all in pawn, Go down you blood red roses ♪ And it’s mighty draughty around Cape Horn, Go down you blood red roses, go down ♪ Oh you pinks and posies, Go down you…. ♪
“Oh. My. God.” thinks Sven. “He hasn’t been the same since he watched that Fisherman’s Friends movie.”
“What do you think we should name her?” asks Ken.
“MONKEY BUSINESS, MONKEY BUSINESS, MONKEY BUSINESS” insists Tiny Monkey.
“BACKBREAKER” suggests Sven.
And once again, Sven gets dragged into Ken’s shenanigans.
That’s okay Sven, it’ll be a lot more fun when she’s out of the snowbank and on the water.
