Peg the Pirate Pig loves money. She flies her plane the Scarlet Pig, upside down through the air. Peg hates flying, she gets air sick and turns green when flying. She has an interesting way of solving this issue, turn it upside down, that way she can’t see how high she is in the air. The Scarlet Pig is not the most reliable of things in the sky, its engines are rough and noisy, the wheels are patched and held together with feathers. Peg is not liked, she’s a pirate after all, she smells, never washing and is constantly dirty. After all, she is a pig. Her mortal enemy, McGinley the fish lives at McGinley’s river. McGinley lives in harmony with nature, keeping her river tidy, clean and free from pollution. See what happens when McGinley owes Peg the Pirate Pig money.
