Glad he didnt have to call coast guard or he would have sounded a right turnip.

Coastguard - Can you describe your vessel sir ?
Skipper - Yes its a large Pumpkin with an outboard, very round and orange.
Coastguard - Of course sir, have you been drinking today ?

Fair play to him.

Based on other posts this year if he had put an inflatable collor on it he called have claimed the first vegtable rib record.
