We got a regatta!
Well, we’re having a majestic sailing regatta on the Potomac.
So you have a ship?
No. One ship is not a regatta. We have dozens.
Wow! That’s a lotta regatta!
And they’re all carrying those famous clay warriors from China. It’s a terracotta regatta.
Is it in honor of anyone?
Yes, the founding father of Kenya, Jomo Kenyatta. It’s a Kenyatta regatta.
This all sounds VERY expensive. Is somebody sponsoring it?
Yes, an Italian cheese producer. We’re calling it…
No, Blog Guy! I beg you!
Too late. The Ricotta Regatta.
