Ghostwritten 2

The scene.... Martin is sat at a 1920s art-nouveau Bakelite dining table, on a floor of bottle-green glass in a room decorated with moleskin wall hangings. He smokes a pink cigarette and drinks from a pint glass of something that looks not entirely unlike cheap red wine. He is working on his Iberian Chiffy paper, when suddenly he notices a trail of glowing footprints leading up the beach from the sea. ' Zoinks!', he says, and runs into the arms of Scooby Doo, as the seaweed-covered ghost of Captain Cutler appears at the window and demands to write the next blog entry. And here it is...

[S-c G CC] Whoaaaaaahhhhhh!!!! Ooooooooooohhhhhhhhh!!!!!!! Moaaaaaaaaannnnnnnn!!!!!!! Eurrrrrrgggggghhhhhhh!!!! Ooooooooooaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhh!!!!! RRRRRrrrrrrrrrrooooooaaaaarrrr

[Cut!] Martin realises that his experiment with ghostwriting has been a terrible mistake. He formulates a plan with the help of Velma, his 'special teenage friend', to turn on a hose attached to a bottle with a bar of soap, making the
seaweed-covered ghost of Captain Cutler slip and fall into his net and capture him by hoisting the net high. But when he turns on the hose, it spirals out of control landing Scooby in a boat. He runs into the dock, capturing the ghost in the process. They take off the mask and recognize the ghost as the real Captain Cutler... without the beard.

[S-c G CC] And I'd have gotten away with it too, if it wasn't for you meddling kids.
