And in Italian courtesy of Babelfish-
Il Venditore Del Colpetto Di Venezia Harken di nuovo ai giorni dorati della nostra gioventù quando i lucidatori dei commercianti del colpetto e del foro di spina hanno commerciato i loro articoli sulle acque seriche dei canali di Venezia. Grida "del buy venuto i miei colpetti belli!" e "lucido il vostro foro di spina!" è venuto l'EC che zappa intorno ai puntelli della laguna, glinting come un bagno gigante dell'uccello verso la fine del sole di pomeriggio

Ahahhaaargh! Matey's! This be the wooden leg of old Long John McGrogbasket, the scurviest pirate that did ever haunt the seven seas! Back in 1789 he had his leg sawn off in a terrible accident whilst in a drunken stupor on a carpenters workbench in Rotherhithe. This leg was fashioned by the famous pirate leg sculptor Angus Bilge from the yardarm of the Saucy Pelican that was captured from the Rutland navy in 1716 and had been used as a pit prop in the shale mines of Dorset for many years. Alas the leg was atatcked by woodworm and had to be sprayed with ammonia and DDT, a deadly combination it turned out and the leg exloded and landed in Guernsey in 1798. After a long search the leg was found and returned to Long John who used it despite it being three inches shorter than it used to be. An additional castor was employed to make it sea worthy and floats were attached in case it fell overboard. After his death from dry rot in 1799, Long John's wooden leg was sold to the Museum Of Piratatical History in Swanage where it now resides.
