'flipeenos supply outdated charts ergo vessels go fast aground = Kerching!

Reminiscent of my favourite Sods Opera party-piece poem:

<<...And there on a reef we came to grief,
Which has often occurred to me.

“And pretty nigh all o’ the crew was drowned
(There was seventy-seven o’ soul),
But only ten of the Nancy’s men
Said ‘Here!’ to the muster-roll.

“There was me and the cook and the captain bold,
And the mate of the Nancy brig,
And the bo’sun tight, and a midshipmite,
And the crew of the captain’s gig.

“For a month we’d neither wittles nor drink.
Till a-hungry we did feel,
So we drawed a lot, and accordin’ shot
The capting for our meal.

etc etc...>>
