Off the coast of Los Cristianos / Palm Mar?  Does anybody know what it's doing there?

Say something nice!

general opinion seems to be that it's being towed to Lanzarote ... but I don't kinow because there's no official word at all.

I think it was stolen from the North Sea, and is being towed to Morocco. To the left you can just make out a rowing boat with two gentlemen in it.

Oil rig now on horizon and appears to be heading back in the other direction.

If you look more closely, as well as Percival and Hugo in the rowing boat towing the rig you will see a chap by the name of Norbert. In his hand seems to be a piece of wood in the shape of  'Y' I'm not sure if this is significant, but I thought I should mention it.
