My ode to Kapp'n

The lovely Heart & Lungs zine had a request for stories from the sea for issue 2. After a wee thought, kapp'n came to mind.
Kapp'n is a turtle who appears in the Nintendo game Animal Crossing. In the Game Cube version, when you attached your GameBoy Advance, you got access to an extra island, and kapp'n would gladly take you over on his little boat. He would sing sea shanties as you made your way across, about love or cucumbers (or ocassionally both). This morning Heart & Lungs issue 2 landed on my doorstep, and amongst the beautiful illustrations, interviews and stories, there inside is my ode to kapp'n.
You can purchase Heart & Lungs here, and even have a sneaky peak inside here. Go on.
