Teaser Tuesday (#28)

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.

Here are the rules:
  • Open your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two "teaser" sentences from somewhere on that page
  • Be careful not to include spoilers!
  • Share the title and author too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR list if they like your teaser!
One wonderfully bonkers quote for you today, from an equally bonkers and brilliant book.  Enjoy!

The Pirates! In an Adventure with Scientists by Gideon Defoe,
Chapter One, Page 14
"We need to dust the hams with bread raspings if we're going to boil them.  And we should dress the knuckle bone with a frill of white paper."
"A frill of white paper?  What kind of pirate are you?  Rah!"

The Pirates! I n an Adventure with Scientists (The Pirates!, Book One) by Gideon Defoe
Synopsis From Goodreads:
Not since Moby-Dick...No, not since Treasure Island...Actually, not since Jonah and the Whale has there been a sea saga to rival The Pirates! In an Adventure with Scientists, featuring the greatest sea-faring hero of all time, the immortal Pirate Captain, who, although he lives for months at a time at sea, somehow manages to keep his beard silky and in good condition.
Worried that his pirates are growing bored with a life of winking at pretty native ladies and trying to stick enough jellyfish together to make a bouncy castle, the Pirate Captain decides it's high time to spearhead an adventure.
While searching for some major pirate booty, he mistakenly attacks the young Charles Darwin's Beagle and then leads his ragtag crew from the exotic Galapagos Islands to the fog-filled streets of Victorian London. There they encounter grisly murder, vanishing ladies, radioactive elephants, and the Holy Ghost himself. And that's not even the half of it.

Well this is my teaser!  Hope you liked it!

What's your teaser this week? :)
