Pointless, but rivetting nonetheless. 
At least you're not board.

We seem to be sailing close to the wind with this tack and much as I'd luff to go about my business I'd feel thwarted if I did so with no clew as to which port of call we might enter next. So let me be stern and stem the tide of bilge by pointing out that I am three sheets to the wind, as befits a tar on a friday, so I'll just cut adrift before anyone jibes about my inability to hold course. Aweigh, Master Bates!

I think National Novel Writing Month is a novel idea.

Ah! The pie chart, some say it was Florence Nightingale who invented it, but come on now, play fair, it was William, Bill (US = check) to his friends and the waitress who served him with the pie.

BILL ??? CHECK??? No that bit just don't work at all, do it?!?!

Oh Buoy! I'll take all four belles, thanks, though I may have to heave two in order to go about my business. Get my drift? Knot that I can fathom what this is all about, of course.

I am led to understand that one of these four belles is in fact your father's sister and that in the past she made regular appearances in 'top shelf' magazines. Do these facts mean that she is a sextaunt?

No, that's more like a jibe at the size of your cox, or some other naughty-call insult.
