Okay, I must confess that I have this weird mind, and when I saw the characters expressions and the pitchforks, a dialogue came into my mind!
Short dude, "Ah sir, I knows yous has been guarding it 'cuz it's a precious commodity. BUT ifens you don't fork over the pitch, that leak in the cargo hold be gettin' more fierce and we be sinking, sir!!!" Great job with those characters and the olive wall! :)
