ship of dreams

king of the world

But did it actually sink? Or did it just … never sail again for unspecified but non-tragic reasons? Or did the buggs discover hovercraft & just abandoned their sailing ships? I HAVE QUESTIONS.


Mrs Bugg stands on the rail at the prow of a large ship, arms outstretched, smiling hugely as per usual, while Mr Bugg holds her waist (I guess? It’s not very well-defined) to stop her falling off.

The text reads: “Aprovul 1, 1912: The Buggtanic sets out on its first and only voyage. Years later, a great film will be made about the voyage using only thumbs.”
